It might have not sounded like an awful idea at first, but the world’s first smart cam didn’t exactly become a mainstream sales hit. And yet Samsung is still pushing forward with the Galaxy Camera. Way to stand your ground, Sammy!
A Wi-Fi only version of the connected snapper has been earlier today made official and is said to hit the market “soon”. We don’t have an exact ETA at the moment, but we’re probably only a couple of weeks away from the launch.
Samsung is hush-hush on pricing too, but again we don’t have to be wizards to make an educated guess. The Wi-Fi G Camera should be slightly cheaper than the 3G/LTE model (currently going for $500-$550). So, probably 400 bucks. Or 450, at the absolute worst.
The newest Galaxy Camera comes with basically the same specs and features as the “old” model, save for the connectivity options. You’ll therefore get a 16.3 MP sensor, a 21x optical zoom lens, a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos CPU, 1 GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 4.8-inch 1,280 x 720 pix res display. Not bad, but is that worth $450?
