On Dec. 13 the Samsung Galaxy Camera will be getting a huge, and faster, upgrade for those interested in getting a data plan for one. Previously offered on AT&T's HSPA+ network, the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Camera will soon be offered on the faster LTE network of Verizon.

Verizon made the announcement on Tuesday, Dec. 11, and will offer the Samsung Galaxy Camera in two colors.

"Available online starting Dec. 13, Verizon Wireless will offer the Samsung Galaxy CameraTM, the first 4G LTE camera in the world. With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, high performance photography, and Verizon's 4G LTE network, the Galaxy Camera allows users to shoot, edit and share high quality images and video," noted the Verizon press release.

Connecting to the carrier's 4G LTE network, the Samsung Galaxy Camera comes at a price with faster connectivity. The camera will sell for $549.99 which is $50 more than what is offered by AT&T. However, a factor that potential buyers should consider before purchaing the camera is that the data plan is cheaper on Verizon than AT&T. Verizon customers can expect to pay just $5 more to add the camera to their Share Everything plan, whereas the AT&T Mobile Share plan costs $10 per month. Alternately, consumers also have the option to bypass the data plans and opt for Wi-Fi networks instead.

Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy Camera's price may not suit every pocket and many consumers may find it steep. Opting for a data plan means an additional expense, even if it means that users can upload the images directly.

With Verizon offering its lightning fast 4G LTE network, users of the Samsung Galaxy Camera on the carrier will undoubtedly have the speed advantage over their counterparts. What's more, with the Galaxy Camera on board, Verizon could well be looking to capture a large chunk of the data market.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera sports a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD touchscreen with full access to all Android apps from Google Play store. The point-and-shoot camera has a 21x optical zoom, manual controls and auto exposure modes, combining the usability of an Android smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Camera is powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which lets users share their photos instantly right from the camera itself via social media or e-mail.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera makes a perfect gift for the personal blogger or photography lovers wanting to do more than just take pictures but want to share them instantly. Verizon is offering the camera in both White and Cobalt Black. The latter is exclusive to Verizon.
