Samsung today announced a WiFi version of the Samsung GALAXY Camera, building on their previously released GALAXY Camera 3G. Centered on the Android Jellybean 4.1 platform, the GALAXY Camera is a loaded point-and-shoot camera with a familiar, intuitive user interface and access to Android applications from the Google Play market. The GALAXY Camera is set to retail for $450.
Boasting a 21x optical zoom, 16MP backside illuminated CMOS sensor and 4.8-inch HD Super Clear Touch LCD, the GALAXY Camera is designed to make it easier to capture images, edit them with your favorite apps and then share over WiFi to family and friends.
The GALAXY Camera’s photo interface blends the capabilities of an advanced camera with an easy-to-use touch interface so users can learn and grow with their photography skills with each use. An innovative Smart Mode places camera settings at users’ fingertips, letting them fine-tune and adjust settings like shutter speed, aperture and exposure by simply manipulating sliders on the screen. The GALAXY Camera also offers a selection of different scene modes to help users define the appropriate settings for a particular scenario, whether they want to capture flowing waterfalls, an action-packed sports event, and more.
The Samsung GALAXY Camera (Wi-Fi) will be available later this month (April) for $449.99 direct from Samsung and authorized Samsung retailers.
