Following last year's release of the Samsung Galaxy S4, its Korean maker released an abundance of spin-off devices, including the ruggedized Galaxy S4 Active and the camera-focused Galaxy S4 Zoom. Since the newly-released Galaxy S5 packs the former Active's dust and waterproofing features as standard, we're only anticipating the Galaxy S5 Zoom, or "Galaxy K" this time around, and a new, legitimate-looking leak showcases said handset's 10x optical zoom lens.
Even though Samsung's just-released Galaxy S5 will serve as the company's biggest smartphone release of the year, it certainly won't be its last, and as with every major Galaxy handset, we're anticipating a slew of follow-up devices. The Galaxy S5 Zoom, which will likely include some major camera-centric features in order to serve the growing group of wannabe photographers, has been detailed in several leaks during the course of the past few weeks, and now, Samsung has sent out an invitation to an event on April 29th in Singapore that could well see the device finally showcased to the world.
You have to admire Samsung's continued and irrepressible efforts to push such a high volume of top-end devices out into the market as possible, and in doing so, appeal to as many different niches as it can. As was the case with the Galaxy S4, the just-announced Galaxy S5 will spawn a bunch of spin-off handsets, and following on from the camera-centric Galaxy S4 Zoom, we now how have what looks a fairly legit leak of the Galaxy S5 Zoom's tech specs via GFXBench.
