The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 has been announced and although its availability details are currently under wraps, the company has revealed that it will be showcased at the CES 2014 in Las Vegas. It builds up on the success of the Galaxy Camera and claims to have features usually found in high-end snappers.
What makes it different from conventional point and shoot cameras is that it makes the most of the Android Jelly Bean platform and has built-in sharing features too. You can click away without worrying about storage capacity as the device is pre-loaded with the Dropbox application which brings 50GB of storage free of charge for a period of two years. The Android 4.3 OS is mainly responsible for the snapper’s intuitive interface.
The Galaxy Camera 2 has Wi-Fi for internet access and Tag & Go for connecting it to devices via NFC. Features like Photo Beam and Mobile Link facilitate transferring pictures to handheld gadgets, whereas Remote Viewfinder lets you control the snapper via a compatible smartphone or a tablet.
Additionally, you can add in a creative touch to your pictures using Smart Mode or Smart Mode Suggest and trust Selfie Alarm to help you click decent self portraits. Multi Motion Video is responsible for all your recorded clippings. It goes without saying that you can install applications from the Play store to edit photos in the camera itself.
The price and release date of the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 will be disclosed at a later date.
