A lot of smartphone owners out there who use the camera frequently are counting the days until smartphone cameras improve. Most of them work fine at closer distances, but if you are far away, you end up with subjects too small to see. What smartphones really need is a camera with optical zoom.
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.
