I got to take Samsung’s camera-centric Galaxy K Zoom for a spin last year, and I liked it. Quite a number of other liked it too. Having a powerful lens and being one of the few modern smartphones with a Xenon flash, it easily shines in the photography department. However, the Android-powered cameraphone is a bit bulky though.
Anyway, the lowdown is that Samsung will not be providing a Lollipop update to the K Zoom.
@ahmetgngr13 We don’t like to be the bearer of bad news, but the Galaxy Zoom will not be receiving the Lollipop update.

The K Zoom runs Android version 4.4.2 Kitkat and with the above verdict, it will stay that way till its death. Sad. See some of the photos that I took with it last year here, here, and here.
