Samsung’s Galaxy K teaser shows the power of optical zoom
Two weeks back, Samsung started sending out notices for its next media event, inviting us to “kapture the moment” and featuring a large letter K that seemed to give credence to rumors that the device we had been calling the Galaxy S5 Zoom would instead launch as part of a new Galaxy K brand. Last week we got to check out a rather convincing image of the actual hardware, and now we’re just hours away from Samsung’s announcement, scheduled to occur tomorrow morning in Singapore. With the clock ticking down, Samsung’s been teasing the event, and doing so in a way that appears to reinforce our expectations for this smartphone.
Specifically, Samsung’s taking advantage of Instagram’s video support to offer an animated depiction of the Red Dot Design Museum that will host tomorrow’s event, zooming-in on the building from afar. Without needing to even say anything, the teaser acts as tacit acknowledgment that we’re looking at new hardware with powerful zoom capabilities – exactly like we’d expect from a Galaxy S Zoom/Galaxy K model.
Will the Galaxy K be alone at this event? Will we get some greater insight into Samsung’s plans for this new family of devices? Check back with us tomorrow – or overnight, for that matter – to learn what Samsung had to share.
