Samsung's camera-centric flagship smartphone Galaxy K Zoom is reportedly set to debut in India soon.
The South Korean company has joined hands with the world's largest e-commerce site, Amazon to exclusively launch Galaxy K Zoom in India, reported BGR India.
Amazon also confirmed the news via its official website. The company has opened a contest for Indian citizens (Amazon account required) to win the Samsung's marquee camera-centric phone for free. Consumers need not even purchase, provided they conform to certain criteria. [Note: The contest is said to end on 13 July 2014]
