The price for the Samsung Galaxy Camera in UK and its release date information are now known through the company itself and online retailer Clove. The snapper cum smartphone is expected to hit availability status in a couple of days time.
The handset was first unveiled at the IFA 2012. It aims to deliver high performance photography coupled with the Android operating system. Well, it isn’t the only one to feature Google’s mobile platform. The Nikon Coolpix S800c is the main competitor this Samsung device faces. Compared to the camera in question, the former snapper isn’t that compelling in terms of specifications. While it proffers a 16MP CMOS sensor, a 10x Nikkor zoom lens and a 3.5-inch OLED display, the Galaxy Camera stands tall with a 16.3MP image sensor, a 4.77-inch HD Super Clear screen, Android 4.1 and a 21x optical zoom lens.
Since we’ve already listed out some of the hardware components employed within the device, here’s a complete list of specifications. The Jelly Bean platform is powered by a quad core SOC based on the Cortex A9 architecture with a clock speed of 1.4GHz. 1GB of RAM accompanies the processor for smooth operations and multitasking. Hoarding needs are catered to by 8GB of built-in storage and a microSDXC card slot that supports memory expansion. The lens features an f2.8 aperture and it measures 23mm. Users will be able to capture videos in full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution at 30fps or create slow motion movies at 720 x 480p at 120fps. Where connectivity is concerned, owners will have AGPS with GLONASS, Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n standards, Wi-Fi HT40, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G as well as 3G HSPA+ 21Mbps network support.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera will be available for purchase in the UK starting November 8, 2012, for £399 including VAT. What’s more, the company’s brand store customers will be able to pick up the device a day before the commercial launch, on November 7 at 5pm.
