Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 – Rumored Specs and Features
As some of you might know, Korea Times has recently revealed that Samsung’s Galaxy Camera might receive a successor in the shape of , you guessed it, the Galaxy Camera 2. With just a few days until the Korean giant’s event in London (scheduled for the 20th of June), we are still left in the dark regarding most of the aforementioned device’s features.
Samsung has recently revealed a lot of new devices out of which three are spin-offs of the highly popular Samsung Galaxy S4. The three in question are the Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy S4 Active. A couple of tablets are also part of the list, but the Galaxy Camera 2 seems to be the most intriguing of them all. Well, for me at least.
According to the company’s CEO, JK Shin, the Galaxy Camera 2 will most likely be unable to make calls (that’s why we have the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom). However, just like it did with the first Galaxy Camera, Samsung might release two models, one of which will boast cellular connectivity.
Samsung’s Galaxy Camera 2 will be most likely be announced at the London-based event, on June 20th, and if you want Android on all your devices, this would be your chance to get it on your camera. The company’s NX line of mirror-less devices, which use interchangeable lenses, will be most likely the one to take the Galaxy Camera 2 under its wing.
In case you have been waiting to get a Samsung camera running on the Android OS, but somehow the first Galaxy Camera flew under your radar, the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 is the one to look forward to. Unfortunately, details regarding the specifications, price or actual release date are still scarce. However, according to recent rumors, Samsung’s upcoming point-and-shoot is already in an advanced testing phase and will pack a 20.9 MP camera.
