Don’t call it a smartphone, although the specs sure hint that it could double as one. Today the Samsung Galaxy Camera running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is available online and in stores from those folks over at AT&T. Yup this camera runs Android, has AT&T HSPA+ radios under the hood, and packs a 4.8-inch 720p HD display to enjoy all those photos and videos right on the device.
If you’re interested in this device you probably know plenty about it already. For those that don’t you’ll want to check out our Galaxy Camera announcement post. Not only do we have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but this rocks a 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor and an impressive 21x optical zoom. Not to mention having specs nearly the same as the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Those include a 4.8-inch 1280 x 720p HD display, Samsung’s 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage for a few quick photos. Then of course the micro-SD slot lets you expand storage and even supports SDXC for even more storage. Obviously being available from AT&T it also supports HSPA+ radios as well as 3G, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS and more. This is essentially a phone with a camera attached, that doesn’t actually make calls.
For a better look at what to expect from the Samsung Galaxy Camera, check out our hands-on and unboxing from yesterday. Obviously data plans are required, or you can opt to use your own AT&T SIM should you already use the carrier. This smart camera is available starting today from AT&T in stores for $499. Stay tuned for our full review of this camera running Android later next week.
