Pictures found on Google Plus hint at Samsung Galaxy Camera sequel with 20.2MP shooter
A trio of pictures found on Google Plus suggest that Samsung is going to release a sequel to the Android flavored Samsung Galaxy Camera this year. The model number of the camera used to snap the three pictures is EK-GN120, compared to the Samsung Galaxy Camera's EK-GC100. The pictures also revealed that the camera on the device will weigh in at 20.2MP. This happens to be the same as the camera used on the Samsung NX-300. The original version of the Samsung Galaxy Camera included a 16.2MP snapper.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera belongs to a group of devices known as connected cameras. These are cameras with Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity that can upload pictures to your social networks or the cloud. The Samsung Galaxy Camera is available as a Wi-Fi only model and there is also a version with 3G connectivity. And while there is no guarantee that Samsung will announce the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2, considering the leaked photos, who knows? Perhaps this will be a surprise unveiling at the June 20th Samsung Premiere event.

Not bad. Price should be right, Galaxy Camera was too expensive.

They should change their name now. There are too many Galaxy devices out there. Bring something new Sammy. Specially the design.

I agree with so many galaxy they might burn the name too fast

I was thinking they need to toss another name for their cameras and some of its low end phones

Samsung cameras are not worth it. For the same price you can pick up a Nikon/ Canon DSLR.Otherwise samsing should bundle their galaxy cameras with phone capability.

16 MP was enough. The problem was, for it marketed as a dedicated camera, it still only used the same imaging module as the iPhone 4S at the time. Which made it bad, considering what it was marketed as and the price tag. They need to concentrate on camera optic quality this time.

Samsung better start making jeans an trousers for these phones,as they are going to Bulky for normal clothes,o.k it might be a good idea with the focus lens,but the weight of these phones will put alot of people off from buying these phones
