The first-ever photo of a fresh, SLR-flavoured take on the Galaxy S5 has surfaced online, as Samsung begins its program of bringing to market endless iterations of its flagship smartphones.

Souced by KZoom, the image depicts a handset that’s a good deal thinner than last year’s S4 Zoom. More importantly for the aesthetes among you, the telescopic lens fitting seems to protrude less too and there’s a not entirely unattractive Galaxy Note-style leatherette finish.

The site also reports that a 20-megapixel sensor with 10x zoom will be on board. That’s not too shabby and is a substantial upgrade from the 16-megapixel lens on the Galaxy S4 Zoom.

But it still isn’t going to have Nokia’s PureView kits, which are probably the Zoom range's closest competition in the camera-cum-smartphone market, worrying for now.

Today’s rumours about the phone follow earlier conjecture that it will be home to a 4.8-inch 720p display, a 6-core Exynos 5 processor and Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), with Samsung’s TouchWiz custom skin sitting lightly on top.
