Samsung is all set to launch the successor to its Galaxy Camera, dubbed the EK-GC110.
Information about the new Galaxy smart camera first appeared on Bluetooth.org, where the device has received Bluetooth certification.
"The Samsung EK-GC110 is Mobile Device with Bluetooth wireless technology. The device has integrated Bluetooth Version 4.0 technology. The Bluetooth in this device supports HSP, OPP, A2DP, AVRCP, GAVDP, HID, PAN etc," notes Bluetooth.org.
Samsung launched its Galaxy Camera in 2012, a smart camera which combines both mobile technology and photography.
The original Galaxy Camera sports a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD touchscreen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. The camera also boasts of a 21x optical zoom lens, and a super-bright 16.3-megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor. The Wi-Fi and 3G-enabled camera is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Details of the successor to the Galaxy Camera, the EK-GC110, are currently shrouded in mystery. It is said to support Bluetooth 4.0 and is possibly slated for release in Europe.
Reports suggest that the chances of the new Galaxy Camera making an appearance at the MWC 2013 in Barcelona this February are slim; however, we'll have to wait and watch if Samsung chooses to pull out a blinder and unveil the alleged camera.
