Android 4.1.2 update for Samsung Galaxy Camera rolling out

Samsung looks to be issuing a software upgrade for its Samsung Galaxy Camera as folks are reporting Android 4.1.2 is showing up in parts of the United Kingdom. The upgrade doesn’t bring a ton in the way of new features, but users have noticed a new updated Gallery app. The app is said to be the same one that is featured on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and since that one is quite nice we can’t say there will be many objections to its arrival.

There’s no other indication as to what else has changed, but we assume stability improvements and performance enhancements are just a few of the key differences.

This 16 megapixel Android-powered point and shoot camera might not have been met with the greatest fanfare Samsung’s seen (I believe the latest Galaxy phones had that privilege), but the advanced touch screen features and the ability to share photos with tons of social apps is what the OEM will bank on to get the camera some shine in that point-and-shoot arena. Those interested in the upgrade should be looking for firmware BLL7, so get to it and let us know how things are working out for you in the comments section below.

      XDA people have already done it.
      Though, it requires root.


    Hopefully with the update we won’t have to change the camera storage to the memory card everytime the device power cycles.

    I’m glad that Samsung is keeping up with the updates for their products, but at the $500+ range that the Galaxy Camera costs, I’d rather invest in a DSLR. It really needs to come down to about the $300 range for me to be interested in it.
