Samsung launches cheaper Galaxy Camera
Samsung Electronics has launched its Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Camera and added another device to its existing Galaxy camera range. The newest camera will have all the innards of the original camera and will run on the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system.
But what sets it apart from the rest, is that it features only dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity, as opposed to the Wi-Fi and 3G/4G capabilities of the original design.
“The Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi) has all of the innovative and practical features that the Galaxy Camera offers but without a 3G/4G connection. This makes the Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi) more affordable for a user who does not need the always-connected benefit of the Galaxy Camera,” Samsung said in a statement.
It will still make use of the 21x Super Long Zoom lens and a super-bright 16M BSI CMOS, and features “19 different integrated Smart Modes, which allow users to choose from a series of preset scenario options such as Light trace or Action freeze to ensure the perfect shot is captured every time.”
On the business side, the camera features a 4.8” (121.2mm) HD Super Clear Touch Display, preloaded with Photo Wizard and Video Editor and is supported by a quad-core processor that enables fast web-browsing and multi-tasking.
