When the original Samsung Galaxy Camera was released in 2012, it offered something a little different — a fully fledged (Android) operating system on board. This meant much extended functionality over a regular digital camera, you could install photography apps directly onto the camera, and even play games on there.
Its successor, the logically-named Samsung Galaxy Camera 2, has just been announced, with a number of upgrades on the previous model. The quad-core processor has been given a speed-bump up to 1.6GHz (from 1.6GHz on the older camera), and battery life is improved.
Ram has been upgraded from 1GB to 2GB, and the onboard storage has been raised from 4GB to 8GB, although you can of course add a memory card of up to 64GB to massively increase capacity.
The sensor and lens remain unchanged from the original model. There is no release date yet for the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2, but we should get more details at Consumer Electronics Show 2014, which takes place in Las Vegas this week.
