Samsung’s first attempt at making an Android powered digital point-and-shoot apparently went well enough for the Korean company to come up with an update, the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2. The original featured plastic casing and a good set of specs. With the Galaxy Camera 2, Samsung improved on the specs and made the design even better.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 now features a retro design and a faux-leather finish. In terms of size, it’s about the same as the original but the similarity practically ends there. The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 has improved number of pre-set Smart modes, now 28 in all. There are other new features like Tag & Go which is an easy way of sharing files using NFC technology.
Samsung likewise improved the innards. The Galaxy Camera 2 now runs a faster 1.6GHz quad core processor paired with 2GB of RAM and the battery is improved at 2000mAh. Completing the specs list are a 16.3MP CMOS sensor, 4.8-inch HD touch LCD, 21x Optical Zoom, optical image stabilization, and 8GB of internal memory with expansion option via microSD slot. The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 runs Android 4.3 Jellybean. It is Wi-Fi only and has no cellular option.
