Samsung has revealed the Galaxy Camera 2, the successor to the Android-powered Galaxy Camera, this time running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on a 1.6GHz quadcore processor, and packing a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor. Debuting at CES 2014, the Galaxy Camera 2 also packs a bigger battery - now boosted to 2,000 mAh for more shots on a single charge - in addition to 2GB of RAM for faster app switching.
