Samsung just posted a mysterious invitation for an April 29th event, but it'd be more intriguing if we hadn't already seen alleged specs and a picture (after the break) of the soon-to-be-revealed device. That'd be the Galaxy K Zoom, reportedly an Android 4.4.2 KitKat camera phone with a 20-megapixel 10X optical zoom and Xenon flash. The invite seems to confirm a change from the usual matching of Samsung's flagship-du-jour name, like last year's Galaxy S4 Zoom. That may be because the new device bears little resemblance to the current Galaxy S5, with the leaked specs showing a much milder quad-core 1.6GHz CPU and 4.8-inch, 720p screen. In case you missed all the qualifiers, none of this has been verified by Samsung, so don't get too excited (or not) until the end of the month.
mmmm. If true, why on earth do Samsung do this - rather than just put the existing S5 internals into the device - they give it a weaker screen - which surely if your buying as a camera the screen is even more important...

Did the Galaxy S4 Zoom sell enough to actually warrant a product like this?

What about the Galaxy Camera? Sales numbers on those too?
