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 Samsung's usual naming scheme of matching its flagship-du-jour, 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.
