Samsung introduced the Galaxy S4 Zoom smartphone in 2013, featuring the kind of hardware that you normally only get with a standalone camera. Now it looks like Samsung is getting ready to launch a next-generation smartphone with a high quality camera.

The company is holding an event in Singapore on Tuesday April 29th to introduce a new product… and the “Kapture the Moment” invitation suggests the new phone could be called the Samsung Galaxy K.

It’s likely the phone will have an optical zoom lens, much like the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Optical image stabilization, auto-focus, a high megapixel count, and a flash bulb also seem like safe bets. But we’ll have to wait until April 29th for official specs.

Rumor has it the phone will have a better-than-average camera, but otherwise mid-range specs including:

  • 4.8 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel Super AMOLE ddisplay
  • Samsung Exynos 5260 hexa-core CPU
  • ARM Mali-T624 graphics
  • 2GB RAM
  • 20MP rear camera with 10x optical zoom and Xenon flash
  • 2MP front camera
  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat

As far as unofficial specs, they’ve been leaking for months — and the phone even showed up at the FCC recently.

  1. Small sensor+lots of mega pixels=crappy image quality for the most part, unless shooting outdoors on a sunny day.
