While Samsung has had a cellular connected Galaxy Camera available, they have just today unveiled a second model. This latest model keeps the same features, however there is one key difference — this latest is Wi-Fi only. The camera is dubbed the Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi) and will arrive running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Despite the official word coming from Samsung, they have yet to offer some of the more important details. You know, the price and a release date. According to Samsung, the Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi) will be a “more affordable” option for those who “don’t need the always-connected benefit of the Galaxy Camera.” Give that we know this model will be lower priced, however how much lower remains the question.
In the meantime, lets review some of the specs and other details about the camera. First, as this is running Jelly Bean, you will have access to Google Play which means plenty of options in terms of apps. The camera itself has a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear Touch display quad-core 1.4GHz processor, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, a 1650 mAh battery, 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot.
The Galaxy Camera also has a 16.3 megapixel sensor with a 21x optical zoom. Not to mention, the many software perks including Voice Control, Slow Motion Video, Photo Wizard, Video Editor, Share Shot, Auto Upload and a remote viewfinder. Bottom line here, with the exception of the cellular connectivity, this is the same Galaxy Camera that you have already come to love (or hate). Given the proximity to Mobile World Congress, we are hoping to get a bit more information at that time.[via Samsung]
