Last year Samsung stunned the market with their rather impressive Galaxy Smart Camera complete with a 4.8-inch display, 16.3 megapixel sensor, and enough zoom for even the long shots. We’ve been hearing reports of a second-gen camera in the works, and today appear to have found some sample photos of the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 complete with a 20.9 megapixel lens.
There’s been a lot of talk and rumors regarding the Samsung GALAXY S 4 Zoom and its 16 megapixel camera, which should not be confused with the Galaxy Camera 2. These should be two different devices, but anything is possible at this point. The S 4 Zoom has been spotted at the Bluetooth SIG a few times, but we’re being told these will be two different devices.
Today, according to Techtastic some photos have leaked of the alleged Galaxy Camera 2 (model EK-GN120) which lines up with the previous models codename of EK-GC100. While most of the details still aren’t know, or confirmed to be different from the Zoom, they report it will be able to make and place calls. Which is a feature the current Verizon 4G LTE Camera can’t do.
The image above was one of many found this week, clearly showing the devices model number, as well as that impressive image resolution. 5472 x 3080 is the highest we see, which means that the Galaxy Camera 2 will sport a 20.9-megapixel sensor. Or higher. So far we have no details on the rest of the specs, but surely it will be a step-up in all areas over the original.
The first Galaxy Camera has a 4.8-inch HD display and specs to match their Galaxy S III, so it’s plausible this release might follow the same steps and come with a 5-inch display and be powered similar to the GALAXY S 4. Although a quad-core in a camera might be overkill. Stay tuned as we’ll be looking for more details, and hopefully this will be one of many announcements at Samsung’s June 20th event.
