Consumer electronics giant, Samsung has launched the company's flagship camera centric Galaxy K Zoom in India via online store.
The new Galaxy K Zoom is the successor of the 2013 model, Galaxy S4 Zoom. It flaunts a refurbished design language having refined compact body with slimmer bezel and the circular bump (on the rear side) formed by the retractable camera-module is greatly reduced compared to its predecessor.
