Verizon‘s version of the Samsung Galaxy Camera is officially official today as the device is confirmed via press release. Sneaking online last week and then subsequently disappearing, we expected that the carrier would soon make some noise for the Android-powered digital camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera arrives at Verizon stores on December 13 where it will be offered in two colors: Cobalt Black (exclusive) and White. Pricing is $549.99 for the world’s first 4G LTE ready digital camera. The Galaxy Camera can be added to a Share Everything plan for a promotional price of $5 per month.
4G LTE Connectivity: Beyond Smartphones and Tablets
Connected devices are a new way to think about wireless beyond smartphones and tablets.
Having your smartphone or tablet connected to 4G LTE means you’re constantly ready and one step ahead. When a great idea comes to you, there’s no need to wait, you can save it as a note on your smartphone, e-mail it to a friend or share with the world if you’d like.
Now, innovative technology is bringing 4G LTE connectivity to other kinds of personal devices you use, such as the camera. Available online starting Dec. 13, Verizon Wireless will offer the Samsung Galaxy Camera™, the first 4G LTE camera in the world. With Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean, high performance photography, and Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the Galaxy Camera allows users to shoot, enjoy, edit and share high quality images and video.
Social media enthusiasts will be able to connect to their accounts through their camera and upload pictures and videos of outings, concerts and parties as they happen. Shutterbugs and bloggers who post images on their sites will be able to upload photos over 4G LTE instead of waiting to use their computers at home.
The Galaxy Camera features a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD touch screen and runs Android Jelly Bean, so users have full access to Android apps from the Google Play store like Instagram.
This is all combined with other high quality features such as a 16-megapixel lens, 21x optical zoom lens and optical image stabilization for clearer pictures even while moving.
The Galaxy Camera will be available for $549.99 and come in two colors, Cobalt Black, exclusive to Verizon Wireless, and White. Innovative technology needs an innovative plan. Users will be able to add the Samsung Galaxy Camera to their Share Everything account for the promotional price of $5 per month.
