South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung has been long rumored to plan the release of its Galaxy Camera on Verizon’s LTE network, and some official confirmation is now available.Samsung themselves have put the device on a page on the official Samsung US website, which confirms its upcoming availability (although the aforementioned product page has been removed).
The Samsung Galaxy Camera was already launched in the United States on the network of AT&T, yet it seems that Samsung wanted to make it available to more users, and has partnered with Verizon as well for the launch.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Samsung’s camera packs a quad-core processor inside and is powered by Google’s Android operating system.
In addition to support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the camera’s specs list also includes said 1.4GHz quad-core processor, as well as a 4.7-inch HD Super Clear Touch Display at 308ppi, Engadget notes.
Furthermore, it arrives on shelves with 23mm f/2.8 lens with 21x optical zoom, ISO from 100 up to 3200, HDMI out, A-GPS, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The camera is powered by a 1650mAh battery and features 8GB of internal storage, along with a microSD memory card slot to provide users with the possibility to expand it.
At AT&T, this Samsung device was launched with a price tag of $499.99 attached to it, and it might arrive on shelves at Verizon featuring the same cost. However, users should note that signing up for a 4G LTE data plan is also required.
For the time being, however, no official confirmation on the price tag has emerged, nor specific info on when the device might become available for purchase through Verizon.
Nonetheless, considering its appearance on Samsung’s website, we could expect Galaxy Camera to be officially launched soon, so keep an eye on this space for more details on the matter.
