Samsung Galaxy Camera heads to Verizon with 4G LTE

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Friday, December 7th, 2012 With No Comments »

We received a few tips last week that Verizon and Samsung were planning to release the Galaxy Camera complete with 4G LTE speeds and today it appears to be official. While neither party has officially announced the connected smart camera for Verizon, it’s been confirmed right on Samsung’s official site.

After our review, we came away pretty impressed with the Galaxy Camera. The smartphone camera blend into one from Samsung, although you won’t be making calls with this device. We first spotted an FCC filing showing LTE under the hood, and now it is official. AT&T’s model went up for sale last month but it only uses their HSPA+ speeds.

The product page went live listing the Verizon-bound model as model EK-GC120, and so far we have no further details on when Verizon and Samsung plan to offer the smart camera. Most likely it will arrive before the holiday rush, as that just makes sense. You’ll enjoy that 4.8-inch display, quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and everything else we love about Android with the Galaxy Camera. Instagram photos never looked so good.

Once Verizon and Samsung officially announce the 4G LTE Galaxy Camera we’ll update with pricing, details, and a release date. Based off of AT&T’s price, we’re expecting a similar $499 price point from Big Red. Are you interested in the Galaxy Camera now that Verizon will be offering it with their blazing fast speeds? You can upload those awesome 16MP photos and 1080p video super fast to share with the world.
