Aside from these imaging features, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom is also expected to include a physical camera shutter button and a throttle to control the zoom, both of which would make it easier to take pictures.

The screen of the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is also rumoured to  be 4.8-inch display covering almost the entire front of the device. The handset runs Android KitKat, and it is likely to be powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz paired with 2GB of RAM.
