The Samsung Galaxy Camera release date for Canada has been formally announced and it will be available for purchase by the end of the first week of December. The device’s cost is still a mystery and what’s interesting is that the conglomerate plans on launching the 3G + Wi-Fi variant only in the country, despite the availability of 4G LTE carriers.

Owing to the 3G and Wi-Fi support, users will be able to conveniently upload content to social networking websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Dressed in glossy white shade, it packs in a host of high-end components that stand tall in the smartphone category and the point-and-shoot segment as well.
Tucked away within its 0.75-inch form factor is a quad core processor for smooth operations. Captured images and videos as well as the Android platform can be accessed through the 4.8-inch HD Super ClearTouch Display. Photos can be edited with help from the integrated Photo Wizard app which tags along 35 tweaking tools. The front houses a BSI CMOS sensor that has an effective pixel rate of 16.3MP. The lens employed here proffers 21x optical zoom, an f2.8 aperture and a focal length of 4.1mm to 86.1mm.
