Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 10.16.34 AMSamsung’s web-connected, high-definition point and shoot Galaxy camera had many people scratching their heads when it was released in mid-2012, especially concerning it’s price tag. Answering the prayers of some fans, the company then released a more cost-effective ($449) Wi-Fi-only model. And now it appears the company is planning their latest installment to their Android-based video and photo device.

It’s a bit vague, however. A Samsung device, nameless but with a familiar model number of “EK-GN120,” has just received Bluetooth certification. What’s strange is in the ‘product type’ column, the gadget is listed as a “Mobile Phone.” Could that have something to do with LTE connectivity or perhaps a telecommunication feature?

The next-generation Galaxy Camera may also be a smartphone — so it’ll be a highly capable, super-portable, Android-based camera with a cellphone built in. Sounds pretty alright to us. The screenshot below is from the Official Bluetooth ‘Special Interest Group’ website.

That means that the device will be packed with Bluetooth 4.0 but other than that, the rest is speculation. We’ll be excited to see it come out but then again, we can’t yet say that it will with outright certainty.
