Galaxy Camera grows up in 2014
At first glance the Galaxy Camera 2 appears to be a carbon copy of its predecessor, featuring the same 16-megapixel sensor, 21x zoom lens and 4.8-inch LCD display. However, a closer inspection reveals several notable improvements that take this camera beyond the first generation.
NFC, Wi-Fi connectivity features in new Samsung cameras
Samsung has revealed two cameras it will be presenting at CES next week. The Galaxy Camera 2 is an Android-based point-and-shoot device that appears to offer a few upgrades when compared to the original device, while the NX30 mirrorless camera appears to be more a successor to the NX20 rather than the NX300, and is accompanied by a couple of new removable lenses.
Samsung set to refresh Galaxy Camera line
Samsung appears to be preparing a follow-up to last year's Galaxy Camera, an Android-powered device that the South Korean tech giant pushed out amid a range of other offerings. Tech industry insider @evleaks previously revealed a test shot from the device in November, and now the Galaxy Camera 2 has reportedly shown up in Indonesia's ePostel certification website. The mid-range Android shooter could show up early next year at CES or a bit later at MWC.
Android camera gets 180MB update, effect unclear
Owners of Samsung's Android-powered Galaxy Camera should be receiving a software update today if their devices run on Verizon's network. The new update, picked up by Droid Life, looks to be considerable, as it measures 180MB in size. What exactly the software update contains, though, is as yet unknown.
RadioShack confirms will stock HTC One from launch day
RadioShack has confirmed it will be stocking the new flagship phone from HTC, in an e-mail to Electronista. The HTC One, a 4.7-inch Android device with a 468ppi pixel density, a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, and options for 32GB and 64GB of fixed storage, will be available from the retailer from its US launch date, which will be sometime in March. A price has still not been confirmed for the smartphone, which will be revealed closer to its street date.
Samsung adds Wi-Fi-only version of its Android-based Galaxy Camera
Samsung has revealed a lower cost version of its Galaxy Camera, first revealed at IFA in late August last year. The original version shipped with 4G connectivity built-in, while the new model retains the dual-band Wi-Fi capability for sharing photos and video over a wireless network. Correspondingly, it is expected that dropping the cellular radio will also lead to a drop in price over the original $550.
Galaxy Camera comes to Verizon on December 13
Verizon and Samsung announced today that the Galaxy Camera would be coming to Verizon's 4G LTE network on December 13. The Galaxy Camera pairs an Android-powered touchscreen interface with a high-performance camera, and the 4G LTE connectivity allows for photo sharing and web browsing from the same device. The Galaxy Camera will be available for $550, and users will be able to add it to their Share Everything accounts for a promotional price of $5 per month.
Android-based camera to use 4G network in future
A version of the Samsung Galaxy Camera with 4G LTE connectivity will be heading to Verizon, if a recent FCC filing is to be believed. Using LTE access in Verizon's section of the 700Mhz band, the camera appeared under the model number EK-GC120, a slight change from the EK-GC100 name the HSPA+ model used when it was certified.
Galaxy Camera arrives in Canada December 7
Canadian retailers will begin selling Samsung's Galaxy Camera early this December. The Android and touchscreen-enabled camera will arrive in its 3G+Wi-Fi version, and purchasers of the device will be able to use it on any compatible carrier. The device will arrive on December 7, but Samsung has not yet revealed local pricing.
Compact camera with Jelly Bean soon to be released
Samsung has announced a release date for its Galaxy Camera in the UK. The 16.1-megapixel Android 4.1-powered compact camera will be reaching UK shores on November 8th, with a combination of mobile phone stores and camera retailers stocking the device, including Phones 4U, Carphone Warehouse, and Jessops.
Point-and-shoot packs Android, tons of features
Last night at AT&T's Unwrapped 2012 event, Electronista stopped by the Samsung booth to check out what the South Korean electronics maker had on hand. We've taken a special interest in Samsung's Android-powered Galaxy Camera since its announcement at IFA in late August, and had been hoping the company would have a few models on hand at the AT&T event, given that the carrier announced the Galaxy Camera for its network that very day. Well, neither Samsung nor AT&T disappointed, and we got a bit of hands-on time with what Samsung hopes will be the standard in the next generation of point-and-shoot cameras.
Waterproof housing, wireless charger, ring light shown
Samsung has shown off prototypes of accessories for its freshly revealed, Android-based Galaxy Camera. Although no supporting information was supplied for the items as they were displayed at IFA 2012, it has been reported that they will end up being fairly expensive to buy, considering similar items already on the market.
New camera runs Android 4.1
Samsung has revealed a new smart camera at IFA, the Galaxy Camera. The Android-powered camera had been rumored to debut this week alongside the Galaxy Note II, and Samsung has indeed revealed the device, but with some previously unanticipated features.
