Back in August, Samsung unveiled a point-and-shoot Galaxy-branded camera based on Android. The company revealed the device at its unpacked event in Berlin alongside the Galaxy Note 2. Sadly, while Samsung was more than happy to talk specs, the company didn't reveal pricing or a release date for the smart camera.
However, it seems the device is on its way to the United Kingdom and will arrive as early as this week. According to SlashGear, the company has announced a November 8 release date for the Galaxy Camera. The device will be priced at £399.99 and will be sold via cellphone stores and from Sammy's own official store. A U.S. launch through AT&T is said to be scheduled for the next few weeks.
The Galaxy Camera packs a 21x zoom, F/2.8, a 16 Megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor, up to 32GB of storage (as well as an automatic cloud storage option), a 4.8-inch 720p 308 ppi screen, a pop-up flash up top. Running Jelly Bean and available with WiFi or WiFi and 3G/LTE, the device is capable of uploading pictures directly to Flickr, or other social networking sites. Additionally, the camera app on the phone packs exposure settings, photo modes and editing tools so you can tweak your pictures before putting them on Facebook.
