Unimpressed by the Samsung Galaxy S3? Looking for more megapixels than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 offers? Well, why not forego the idea of a high-end Smartphone and opt for a Smart Camera instead – the Samsung Galaxy Camera to be exact?
Call it genius or unnecessary, the Samsung Galaxy Camera release date has been confirmed for the AT&T network this very Friday.
So, what are the specs and features that separate the Samsung Galaxy Camera from a standard digital camera? Or indeed a Smartphone for that matter?
In the simplest terms possible, the answer is 4G connectivity – the Samsung Galaxy Camera is a 4G digital camera that also happens to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and access the web via the AT&T network. Data plans up for grabs will range from $10 to $40 per month, while the Galaxy Camera itself will attach a price of $499.99.
So in essence, we’re talking an incredibly high-end digital camera that can also access the web and run hundreds of thousands of Smartphone apps. But what’s the appeal?
“By connecting the Samsung Galaxy Camera through the AT&T wireless network, users can instantly share photos, giving family and friends a glimpse into their favorite holiday moments,” according to a statement from AT&T which also said that the Galaxy Camera is “a perfect fit” for hardcore snappers.
With regard to actual specs and features, the Galaxy Camera serves up 16-megapixels, a 4.8-inch Super Clear LCD screen, 21X optical zoom and a quad-core 1.4GHz processor under the hood. Samsung has also fitted the Galaxy Camera with an array of manual controls for experts and simple presets for amateurs.
