Way back in 2014, Samsung debuted the Galaxy K Zoom with a wish of blurring the line between smartphone and camera. Now, it looks like Samsung is considering to bring back the Galaxy K series of smartphones as three devices with K branding recently cleared BIS certification.
According to MySmartPrice report, the possible Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra devices have been spotted on India’s BIS certification site with model numbers SM-S911B/DS, SM-S916B and SM-S918B/DS, respectively. Aside from these devices, three devices with possible K series branding also cleared the certification.
BIS listing revealed the model numbers of those three Samsung K series devices are SM-K741B/DS, SM-K746B/DS and SM-K748B/DS. If we give names as per the company’s current naming strategy, these devices can be called Galaxy K74, K74 Plus and K74 Ultra, but it doesn’t make sense.
Apart from model numbers, there’s no information regarding these three mysterious Samsung devices. It could have been a typo or technical error as we haven’t heard about Samsung’s K series of smartphones in recent days. If it’s a technical error, the authority will refresh the listing page in the near future.
Galaxy K Zoom
Samsung launched the Galaxy K Zoom smartphone in April 2014 with its own developed hexa-core Exynos chipsets with quad-core 1.3GHz and dual-core 1.7GHz processors. In the camera department, the K Zoom was equipped with a 20.7-megapixel BSI CMOS camera sensor, via Engadget.

Samsung working on 1-inch camera with in-sensor crop zoom: Rumor
Samsung shipped its 200-megapixel camera with the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Moving ahead, the company is expected to ship the next two S Ultra flagships with enhanced variants of its 200-megapixel sensor. A new leak reveals that Samsung is also working on a 1-inch ISOCELL camera sensor.
Tipster @Tech_Reve revealed that Samsung is working on a 1-inch ISOCELL camera sensor with 0.8µm pixels, dual-pixel autofocus, and in-sensor crop zoom. Apart from these details, the tipster hasn’t revealed the model number of this image sensor.
Earlier, the same source disclosed that the South Korean tech giant would bring a significant camera upgrade to the Galaxy S25 and S25 Plus. These flagships are said to introduce a new Sony image sensor, ditching the conventional ISOCELL camera.
Galaxy S25 to feature new Sony Camera rather than Samsung ISOCELL
Countless leaks and rumors revealed most of the things about the Galaxy S24 series. In a recent development, a new leak indicates that Samsung is ditching the ISOCELL image sensor in favor of a new Sony Camera on its upcoming Galaxy S25 and S25 Plus.
According to tipster Revegnus, Samsung’s Galaxy S25 and S25 Plus smartphones might not use an ISOCELL camera sensor, with an upgrade to a new Sony Camera solution expected. It’s worth noting that there’s no camera hardware upgrade in the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus.
Great news: The S25 and S25+ will no longer use the dreadful GN3 sensor; instead, they will feature Sony’s image sensor. I’m very happy! https://t.co/P6pxMEmyMl
