Galaxy S5 Zoom teased to launch April 29 as Galaxy K

Of all the possible “spin-offs” that would join the Galaxy S5 as members of Samsung’s 2014 family, a Galaxy S5 Zoom has long seemed the most likely to make an appearance. We’ve been chasing leads on the phone for a couple months now, but the most interesting development came earlier this month, when a source both provided the first possible image of the hardware, along with a new name for the model: the Galaxy K Zoom. We weren’t quite sure at the time how much faith to put in any of that, considering the name seemed to come from out of left field and the picture itself didn’t look quite right. Last night, however, some new support arrived for that odd name, with Samsung tweeting the very K-heavy teaser you see above.

With the “kapture the moment” tagline (straight out of a Mortal Kombat game), it’s pretty clear we’re talking about something to do with cameras, and in the light of that previous mention that the GS5 Zoom would instead be a Galaxy K device, we’re pretty darn confident that’s what we’re talking about here.

In theory, this new support for that Galaxy K name should also have us becoming a little more willing to accept the image that arrived alongside it, but our concerns remain; we’re going to need a tad more confirmation before we’re totally buying-in to that design. Conveniently enough, we won’t have long to wait before this all goes official and we get our answers, with Samsung’s April 29 launch event just over two weeks away.
