Samsung Galaxy K (Galaxy S5 Zoom) to launch on April 29 2014

Samsung have started to send out invites for its new camera cum smart phone the Galaxy K. The device was previously considered to be the Galaxy S5 Zoom, but Samsung have now confirmed it will be called the Galaxy K.  The event titled “Kapture the moment” will be held on April 29 at the Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore.  There is also some chatter that the Galaxy K will not look like the Galaxy S5, which would be a nice change considering how the Galaxy S4 Zoom looked like a chubbier version of the Galaxy S4. In the specs department the Galaxy K has been upgraded quite a bit if compared with its predecessor. Main difference being the camera, which has now been upgraded to 20 megapixels from the 16mp found in the previous model.  Other features include a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED 720p display, a Hexa-core Samsung Exynos 5 5260 SoC that features two Cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and four Cortex A7 cores clocked at 1.3 GHz, Mali-T624 GPU and 2 GB RAM. The front camera will be 2mp which would be enough for most people. The camera/smartphone will be running on the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS out of the box. If any of you are going to the event, or know more about the device let us know in our comments section...

Not so long ago, the Japanese tech giants launched their very first detachable QX10/QX100 lens-style cameras that could very well be attached with any smartphone using Bluetooth or NFC. The only issue with these lenses were their inability to get attached with the larger tablet screens  but now things are about to change thanks to the Sony SPA-TA1 attachment for tablets. The attachments are for devices that would range between 85mm and 190mm in width which is definitely a huge upgrade from its predecessor that could only support devices having a maximum width of just 75mm. The Sony SPA-TA1 tablet attachment will launch on April 4th 2014 in Japan at a suggested retail price of 3,675 Yen (£21, €26, $36). Till now there has been no official word as to when the new attachment would be available outside Japan but there are rumors suggesting that it would be pretty soon.
