Samsung has announced the Galaxy Camera 2, the second iteration of its Android-powered dedicated point and shoot camera.
The new camera has a new design that makes use of Samsung’s faux-leather material that we’ve seen on the Galaxy Note 3; it sports the same 16-megapixel camera with 1/2.33-inch sensor size, Xenon flash, and 21x optical zoom as the original, but comes with a new image processing system that Samsung says can deliver better pictures than before, Sammobile reports.
Samsung has also made a few additions on the software side, namely new shooting modes that bring the total up to 28. As was the case on the original Galaxy Camera, professional photographers will be able to fine tune settings such as ISO values et al.
1.6GHz quad-core processor
2GB of RAM
8GB of storage
2000 mAh battery (can capture up to 350 photos on a single charge)
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
The Galaxy Camera 2 will be on display at CES next week where the price of the device will be disclosed. With little to no upgrades on the thing that matters most, i.e. the camera unit, it remains to be seen how much of an improvement the Galaxy Camera 2 offers in terms of image quality – hopefully it’s a considerable one, as the original was just a tad above average for a camera that cost $499.
