Samsung Mobile is teasing an upcoming an announcement at a press event scheduled for April 29 and from the tagline on the invitation (above) it looks like the announcements will be camera or photography related. Samsung isn’t offering many details other than the “Kapture The Moment” line on the invitation, but we have been seeing more and more rumors for upcoming next-gen Galaxy Zoom devices that might fit the bill.

The device is rumored to include a much thinner and lighter design, a 20MP shooter, 10x zoom, NFC, Android 4.4.2, a 1280×720 4.8-inch display, 2GB of RAM and a Samsung Exynos 5 Hexa CPU.
