Its selling point though is the 16.3-megapixel camera with 21x optical zoom, Optical Image Stabilization and BSI CMOS sensor.
Other features include 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded to up to 64GB using a microSD card, 2,000mAh battery and in terms of connectivity unlike its predecessor; the Galaxy Camera 2 doesn’t have a SIM card slot or 3G/ LTE and instead offers NFC. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth 4.0. On the software front, the camera runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean wrapped under Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
There’s no mention of a price at the moment or when it could arrive in India. That said, we are bound to get more information during CES.
