Samsung shows off Galaxy Camera 2 Samsung has shown off the sequel to their Galaxy Camera Android-based digital camera, the Galaxy Camera 2.
The new device has improved specs all across the board and updated the camera to a newer version of Android.

Equal to the first Galaxy Camera, the 2 has a 1/2.3" BSI sensor with 16.3 MP effective resolution, 21x optical zoom, optical image stabilization and pop-up xenon flash with a dedicated AF light. Additionally, you can shoot at 1080p@30fps, 720p@60fps and 512p@120fps just like the Galaxy Camera.

The display is the same 4.8-inch Super Clear 720p LCD as its predecessor, as well.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Camera 2 has a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. Somehow, only 2.8GB are user-accessible, so you will certainly need to add a microSD card if you are an active shooter.

Finally, the new device also adds NFC, a 2000mAh battery, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Galaxy Gear support. The device has removed the SIM slot that allowed for 3G support for the first Galaxy Camera.
