Android may be all the rage in the mobile space, but Samsung is hoping the launch of the Galaxy Camera will turn a few heads and help solidify its position in the point-and-shoot camera sector. Samsung has just announced that the Galaxy Camera will go on sale in the UK starting November 8, and the first retailer has listed the camera at £399.99. The price is certainly higher than we were expecting, but let’s not forget that the Samsung Galaxy Camera does feature a 16 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, 21x zoom lens (2.8-5.9, 23-480mm), pop-up xenon flash, quad-core processor and a 4.8-inch 1280×720-pixel display.
Running Android 4.1, the Samsung Galaxy Camera should be every bit as powerful and useful as the Samsung Galaxy S III, save for the fact that it does not make phone calls. While UK residents only have a few days to go before they can buy the latest member of the Galaxy family, the date of the North American launch is still unknown.
We’re sure that more than a few of you are intrigued by the Samsung Galaxy Camera, but how much would you be willing to pay for a point-and-shoot camera if you already have a great Android phone that can take decent pictures?
