Samsung announces a Cheaper, Wi-Fi only Galaxy Camera


Samsung Galaxy Camera — merger of a point-and-shoot digital camera and a Smartphone — didn’t exactly hit for Samsung. The device is overpriced and in my view, relevant to only a small group of people.

The device is not selling well for another reason — its price. It’s quite costly, maybe that’s why Samsung has decided to launch Wi-Fi-only version of the Samsung Galaxy camera.

This new device would be exactly identical to the one we saw earlier, but without on-the-go connectivity options.

In terms of specs, Galaxy Camera features: a 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 23mm wide-angle lens, 100-3200 ISO range, 1080p video recording @ 30 fps, a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 8 GB internal storage (expandable via microSD card), Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and 21x optical zoom.

There’s no official word on pricing yet; the 4G-capable Galaxy camera sells for $560 at Amazon, so, the Wi-Fi only model should cost about $400, maybe $450. It would still be an expensive point-and-shoot.
