Last year, the company had introduced the EK-GC100 Galaxy Camera. While it entrenched several awesome features and functions, it also has a downside, and that was the requisite of a data plan to go with it. This denotes that aside from the $500 purchase cost, users have to pay another $10 per month (at least) to AT&T for them to directly upload data from the Android-powered camera to the Internet.
The introduction of the EK-GC110, a Wi-Fi only version of the camera, seemed to rectify such prior snag, in a way that it is expected to be a bit less pricey than the EK-GC100.
Here are the key functions and features the new Samsung Galaxy Camera has to offer:
* 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor
* 21x optical zoom
* 4.8-inch display
* 1.4GHz Cortex-A9 quad-core processor
* pop-up Xenon flash
* AF light
* wide-angle 23mm lens
* Android 4.1 platform
* maximum data storage of 4GB
* expandable internal memory of up to 64GB
* 1GB RAM
* 50GB Dropbox cloud space for more storage
Basically, the features remain similar to that of the prior version. The only difference is that the EK-GC110 is Wi-Fi only iteration, similar to the iPhone and the iPod Touch.
Other interesting functions of the new Galaxy Camera would include:
* face and smile detection
* optical image stabilization
* touch focus
* capture 1080p full HD video at 30fps.
Availability information and actual cost of the new Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC110 is still unknown for now. But given the fact that it lacks cellular data connection, it has been presumed less costly than the prior version.
