16 megapixel 1/2.33" sensor; 21x zoom; 4.8" touchscreen; Wi-fi and NFC; Runs Android apps; New 1.6 GHz processor; 28 Smart Scene modes; 1080p HD video; 350 shot battery life
Samsung has made a few updates to their connected compact, the Galaxy Camera
, with the introduction of the aptly named Galaxy Camera 2. The most notable is a better processor, which should help boost the image quality some. It's also sporting a new retro look with a faux-leather wrap that does offer a more comfortable grip. The new model also features almost twice as many smart shooting modes, after the positive response from its predecessor's settings. The camera still includes wi-fi and Near Field Communication with an Android operating system, as well as a good 21x zoom. There's no word on price yet or the official release date, but the first was released at around $500 and the Galaxy 2 will probably follow that line. We would have liked to see a bigger sensor for the price, since the camera features the same 1/2.33" sensor, but Samsung is hard to beat in terms of connectivity.
