Samsung launches Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Camera

Posted by Shane McGlaun

Samsung debuted its Android-powered Galaxy Camera back in November, but neglected to roll out a WiFi only version - until today.

Yes, the industry heavyweight has unveiled a Wi-Fi only version of its Galaxy Camera that allows users to wirelessly transfer images without the need for an LTE/3G network data connection.

Other than Wi-Fi only, the camera is basically the same as its LTE supporting brother. The camera boasts a 21x zoom lens, a 4.8-inch touchscreen and runs Google's Android Jelly Bean OS. Since the camera runs Android and is equipped with a big touchscreen display on the back, you can use the device to surf the web, play games and run apps.

On the inside, the camera is basically a quad-core Android smartphone minus the ability to make phone calls. The camera is powered by a quad-core processor running at 1.4 GHz paired with 8 GB of integrated storage and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. Additional specs? A 1650 mAh internal battery, HDMI output and GPS support.

Unfortunately, Samsung has yet to confirm a price point, stating only that the WiFi camera will be more affordable than its 4G-equipped predecessor which is currently selling for $500 in AT&T stores.
