Pictures of Samsung Galaxy K Leaked Ahead of Announcement

Galaxy K

Earlier this month, Samsung invited members of the press to “Kapture the Moment” at an event slated for April 29 in Singapore. We expected Samsung was going to launch a type of Galaxy S4 Zoom sequel device, and thanks to a couple of leaked pictures, we can now confirm those assumptions. 

As we can see, the device, named the Galaxy K, is in the shape of an ugly phone, with a giant optical zoom along its backside. It also features dimples along the rear, exactly like what we have on the Galaxy S5.

However, even with the leak of photos, no exact specs were mentioned, but previous rumors indicate the Galaxy K could launch with 4K shooting capability, an HD display larger than 4.5″, and a quad-core processor to power it all.

Gorgeous. Breathtaking. Those are just a couple words that come to mind when looking at the Galaxy K. Samsung has another winner right here, folks. /sarcasm

    Holy crap, I want this device. Dead serious. I couldn’t care less how ugly you may think it is; for a decent shooter with an optical zoom and a Xenon flash, I’ll live with the slight hit in the looks department. Do people really care that much about how their device looks rather than functions? I guess I’ve just never understood fashion, and I’m not about to start trying or caring.

    Why the hate? If it has all the capability of and S4/5 plus takes great photos, I could care less what it looks like. People care so much about what these phones look like . I buy phones for the function they perform,, I find them all pretty bad as far as design goes.

    You would think, because they would need it, or make use of it more would be USB 3.0 for faster data transfers and charging.

    Swing and …a miss, Samsung

    I think you might have ruined my phone when you made me that camera-phone… and my camera.

  • flosserelli

    It looks like a pregnant Galaxy S5.

    can we please stop using these word ‘leaked’ – it implies that someone released it without Samsung’s knowledge which we know isn’t the case.

    People buy these? Serious question.

  • DJyoSNOW

    Looks like the pic was taken by a Samsung device my note 3 pics look foggy after owning it for a month now…

    Aesthetics aren’t too appealing for sure, but if it can produce good results and has decent optical zoom it may be worth checking into. And with all that room you may have opportunity to fit a bigger fatter battery inside of it. That’d be nice.

      Just make One Hell of a Selfie commercial and it will sell

  • William Oh

    Looks decent to me, seems to be IP67 ? though i’d probably buy a Sony for cameras, but it’s too early to judge

  • Walter Partlo

    I have been looking for a band aid camera phone.

  • ravenofdoom

    who wants this? Must be the same market research team at samsung deciding that top notch specs need to be in a phone no less than 5.1″ with thicker bezels than its previous flagship.

  • Chris Gatley

    You can’t even try to say that it has a good personality too because of TouchWiz… bleh

  • duke69111

    I think this looks a lot better than last years version. If they could thin it down a bit more and make sure it was a fully working smartphone. I’d jump on that. They are most definitely moving in the right direction.

    “is in the shape of an ugly phone” took the words out of my mouth..

  • John

    Just because its a galaxy camera doesn’t mean it has to look like the damn phone! In this case, an even uglier S5. Bandaid camera. So glad I moved to LG. Only the Note 3 is remotely desirable from them these days.

  • Chris Stuart

    I’d buy it. It’s thick, but the clear tpu case doesn’t help it.

  • Blue Sun

    I got an idea, I’ll take this device to my car, place it near my lap, & photograph it. I’ll show the world my designer blue jeans, fancy leather seats & crappy looking phone which is probably running Tizen.

  • huston

    Well the original would have sold enough for them to have given life to this sequel

  • MotoRulz

    In a word..Hideous

    • LosttsoL

      Hey, fat phones need love too.

      • Jimmy buffet

        But they have to pay…

      • Chewy789

        More kushion for the pushin’

        • a) youth.in.asia

          *K-ushion

  • Alec

    If I was offered money to use that device, I still wouldn’t use it.

  • The Narrator

    a picture that’s not blurry? can’t be real

    • Chris Stuart

      Taken with a galaxy K duh

    • Bald_Sasquach

      Lol it looks like someone got ahold of the camera, ran to their car, and snapped 2 pics in a hurry. Based on the leather, I like to imagine it was a higher-up.
