Samsung announced the second coming of its Galaxy Camera at CES 2014 and though it is an incremental update of sources, the Galaxy Camera 2 delivers with a high-end, Android OS powered camera.
The primary difference between the Galaxy Camera 2 and its predecessor, is that it is not likely we will see a cellular data capable version of the latest model. This decision was most certainly driven by sales figures since the Wi-Fi only version of the device was already $450 and the mobile connected device was $200 more at one point.
Samsung kept the price the same, and added some features to the camera flagship, notably NFC, a “selfie” alarm, bigger battery, faster processor and Android 4.3. Since it is Android powered, and packing Samsung’s TouchWiz interface, the Galaxy Camera 2 is full of features, multiple modes for focus, range, shooting modes, video and a host of other features.
You can pre-order the Galaxy Camera 2 now through Samsung or any number of retailers (Best Buy, Amazon, et al) with a ship date listed as “early March.”
