Starting today, December 13, Verizon Wireless is offering the Samsung Galaxy Camera, the first 4G LTE camera in the world. It is available through Verizon’s website for $549.99 in both black and white models.
If you are an existing Verizon Wireless customer, the Samsung Galaxy Camera can be added to an existing Share Everything Plan for an additional $5 monthly access charge. The cost of the device can also be reduced by $35 if you add it to your existing plan.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera allows users to snap, edit, and share pictures easily. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is connected to Verizon’s 4G LTE network, allowing for fast uploads to social sites and other web pages. Unlike most cameras that make you wait until you're near a computer to upload pictures or to send them, the Galaxy Camera lets you do that right from the device using 4G LTE.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is a pretty respectable camera without the extra features as well. It has 16 MP lens sensor, 21x optical zoom, and the ability to capture 1080p video at 30 frames per second. The 4.8” touchscreen is bigger than the majority of cameras, allowing you to see pictures clearer before and after you take them.
Take a look at the video and pictures of the device on Verizon’s site. If you are in the market for a new camera that is not a phone, and provides more flexibility than your standard camera, the Samsung Galaxy Camera may be a decent idea and a substantial stocking stuffer just in time for the holidays.
