- 21x optical zoom lens,
- super-bright 16MP BSI CMOS sensor,
- quad-core 1 GHz processor,
- 3G and 4G wireless connectivity, and
- microSD card slot.
Chris Penrose, senior vice president, AT&T Emerging Devices said, “Wirelessly enabling Samsung’s Galaxy Camera will create a significant shift in how consumers share and communicate with photos and videos.” He also added, “By posting instantly to social networking sites or sending directly to another device, the person behind the lens is essentially offering family and friends the opportunity to share in the moments as they are actually experiencing them. We’re excited that the AT&T wireless network will help enable these opportunities.”
AT&T has not announced till now the pricing of the Galaxy Camera. But, the listing of Galaxy Camera in a UK retailer suggests that the gadget might cost you $650 without any data contract.
