Galaxy K zoom, which will be available from wednesday, offers an advanced technical camera system designed to offer the control and functionality of a professional camera.

Featuring a 4.8-inch screen, the handset has a hexacore processor (1.3 GHz quad core + 1.7 GHz dual core processor) and is based on the latest Android Kitkat operating system.

'With the launch of Galaxy K zoom, Samsung brings consumers a unique combination of a stylish smartphone with advanced photography capabilities,' Samsung India VP Marketing (Mobile and IT) Asim Warsi said in a statement.
