Samsung has offered an optical zoom camera in the past, but it wasn't very popular. Images of a new Samsung smartphone with optical zoom have leaked and the device is said to be called the Samsung Galaxy K. The big feature of this smartphone is that it has a 10x optical zoom lens and this is the first time the smartphone has been spied with the lens out.

Unlike the other optical zoom smartphone Samsung offered, the Galaxy K still has a familiar smartphone form factor. Other rumored specs for the phone include a 6-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen. The sensor inside that 10x optical zoom camera is a 20MP unit and it has xenon flash. A 2MP front camera and Android 4.2.2 is also rumored.
