Photos Of The Alleged Samsung Galaxy K (AKA Galaxy S5 Zoom) Posted Before Press Event

The Galaxy S4 Zoom, Samsung's strange combination of a standard Android phone and a point-and-shoot camera, was a bit of an odd duck. But it seems to have sold enough units that Samsung intends to release a new model, if only to continue their strategy of covering every possible cell phone niche.
