Before (L) and after the update for the Samsung Galaxy Camera

A mystery firmware update has been sent out for the Samsung Galaxy Camera. The update, to build VRAMC4, comes in at a hefty 180MB although there is no changelist from Samsung or Verizon. Booting up the phone shows that it remains powered by Android 4.1.2. The camera also acknowledged that it was  "Upgrading Camera Software," which pretty much confirms that the update had to do with the camera side of the device and did not make any changes to the Android software on the shooter.

The camera offers a quad-core 1.4GHz processor with a 4.8 inch  Super Clear LCD screen and captures video in FHD at 30fps. The device is equipped with a 16MP BSI sensor with 21x optical zoom and has Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity. You might have noticed the Samsung Galaxy Camera co-starring in a ad for the carrier's Share Everything data plan. In the ad, a strapping young man from the middle of the country is working with his Samsung Galaxy Camera and tablet to improve his swing. As the ad ends, the kid hits a ball that no park would have held. Didn't Mickey Mantle come out of the Oklahoma sandlots using his camera and tablet to improve his swing? Of course, in his day the camera was a Kodak Brownie and the tablet was a Bayer aspirin.
