Samsung Galaxy Camera coming to AT&T November 16th


AT&T will bring the 4G-enabled Samsung Galaxy Camera to their network beginning November 16th. The Android 4.1 camera recently launched in the UK and will soon see its American release courtesy of the wireless provider. While not an actual smartphone, the Galaxy Camera’s Jelly Bean interface will allow for much of the same functionality.

The camera features a quad-core Exynos CPU and 4.8-inch Super Clear LCD touchscreen display, but it’s true hallmark is a 16MP backside illuminated CMOS sensor and 21x optical zoom, providing a camera experience unmatched by the typical Android device. Expert Mode allows users to fine-tune camera settings to provide even better results

The Galaxy Camera can be paired with AT&T’s Mobile Share or DataConnect plans starting at $15/month. As a limited time offer users purchasing a Galaxy Camera device will receive $100 off a second Galaxy device from Samsung. Read the full press release below.

  3. My next phone

    1. But it’s not a phone… O_o

      1. Whhhhaaaaaaaaaaa??? <.<

    2. It cannot make calls, therefore, it is not a phone. Even if it could, you would look like a tool talking into a camera.

      1. VoIP…

        1. Now that you have solved that problem… you have to overcome looking like a tool…

          1. Not use an iPhone … MIND. BLOWN!

          2. I wouldn’t get this as a “phone” either but obviously he wouldn’t be holding the camera up to his head. It doesn’t have a speaker and mic in the right places. He’d either have to always have it on speaker phone or use it with a bluetooth device.

  4. that’s incredibly stupid. whatever, people can waste their money how every they want.

    1. Exactly… Plain dumb. Even dumber if someone would really put this on a data plan

      1. Maybe Some people are photographers. That’s what everyone said about the galaxy note when it was revealed…

    2. I think if someone was already in the market for a god quality point-n-shoot camera, this would be a good deal. After all, you don’t have to add the data, you could just use WI-FI. Now you would have a very nice quality 16MP camera, with optical zoom, and all the benefits of android including sharing to social media, etc. I also like to use my phone for GPS when hiking and backpacking. This is a far better camera for that purpose than my 8mp phone camera.

      If you also happen to be a customer of AT&T and have a family plan, $10 bucks to add data to this device is a no brainier.

      I won’t be buying one, but anyone in the market for a new point-n-shoot should consider this device.

      1. is anyone even in the market for a point and shoot these days? most seem satisfied with what their smartphone offers.

  5. I’m going to re post here my response to this story on another site:

    This camera is a prime candidate for the “don’t knock it until you’ve tried it” cliche. I get that people are skeptical of this as a product, but from someone who’s actually used the thing at Photokina this year, it’s an amazing product that takes great photos and is actually useful. The company that I work for reviews cameras full time (digitalcamerainfo.com and reviewed.com a division of USA Today.) We know good from bad. This was good, bordering on great.

  6. No more you are getting BLOWN! By Tim cook!
    And also taking it up the rear end, by blindly following apple you and other blind followers are all being porked over and over again.

  7. I happen to be in the market for a p/s camera, and went today to get an GNII (sold out) might just wait till next week. I’m not totally convinced I will get one. But, does get me thinking.
