Samsung Galaxy Camera now available in the UK

Folks in the UK will be able to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Camera starting today because retailers like Clove and Expansys have made them available for purchase. This device isn’t a phone — bummer, I know — but Samsung has positioned it as the first mainstream point and shoot camera to run Android (Jelly Bean, in case you were wondering).

The specs do rival top-line smartphones, however, as it houses a 1.4GHz quad-core chipset, 1GB of RAM, a 4.8 inch 1280×720 display, 8GB of internal storage with expansion options, HDMI-out and more. It will be compatible with HSPA-enabled networks in case you don’t want to be limited to WiFi-only access.

But that’s not what you’re here for — the most important thing is that camera sensor that looks oh, so awesome. It’s a 16MP sensor that has 21x optical zoom and a pop-up Xenon flash. While some might say the price of this camera is not worth the performance it delivers compared to traditional point-and-shoot cameras in the same price range.

Speaking of price, it’ll come in starting at £399.00 for one, and that doesn’t come with a leather rope tethering you to a two-year contract. The device is available in both black and white, though we understand that black units at some places might not be immediately available for consumption. Expect it to begin shipping November 12th via Clove and around November 18th from Expansys.

    This is actually pretty awesome…

    I’m looking for a new camera and the specs on this one sound pretty epic…

    But knowing me…I’ll probably stick to my guns and pay the extra £150 for a DSLR…

      That is definitely the way to go.

    I want!

    Why would a camera need a quad core processor?

      Probably best used in Movie Editing, but also for Gaming.

    This is a FLOP. If you truly want a dedicated camera device, buy a DSLR. DSLR photos and videos are unmatched in quality, by these point+shoot cameras.

    Does no one notice the SMAAAALLL bezel on the screen. Something we’ve been asking for years!!!! Obviously it can be done.

    I was gonna buy this for my wife this year but she said she really wants the New iPad (the one that’s not new anymore lol). I’m so disappointed in her.

    I’m dubious of that 1GB of RAM, considering there was space for plenty more. This is supposed to handle photos after all.
