Samsung’s next smartphone to be revealed on 29 April

Here we go again! Samsung has only just finished announcing the Galaxy S5 and a wide range of new tablets, but it’s not done for the year just yet. The company has used the official Samsung Mobile Twitter account to tell us about its next event. It’s not another of its Unpacked events, and is instead called a “Media Day.”

This tells us the device to be revealed won’t be one of Samsung’s top-of-the-range phones like the S5 or the Note 3, but a related phone. The hints come from the invitation itself. The tagline is “Kapture the Moment,” which says we could be looking at a new camera phone from Samsung.

It certainly fits in with recent leaks regarding the Galaxy S5 Zoom, the sequel to last year’s S4 Zoom. However, what about the odd spelling of the word Capture? There have been rumours Samsung will drop the reference to the S5 in the new phone’s name, and go with either the K Zoom, the Galaxy K, or some variation on that theme.

Other leaks have talked about the phone’s possible spec sheet. It may have a 4.8-inch screen with a 720p resolution, an Exynos hexa-core chip, and Android KitKat installed. The standout feature could be a 20 megapixel camera with a 10x optical zoom, but all encased in a slimmer, more compact body shell than its predecessor.

Samsung’s event takes place on 29 April in Singapore, and we’ll bring you all the news when it emerges.
