"Consumers love the Galaxy Camera, and this next-generation version was designed to improve on the successful predecessor, with upgraded and new features that will enhance the photography experience," said Myoung Sup Han, Executive Vice President and Head of the Imaging Business Team at Samsung Electronics. "The result is a more powerful and portable device which continues to embrace the public's passion for the social features of smart phones, yet also provides superior image control and quality.

Although with a faster processor, newer android version, better battery life and more storage/memory Galaxy Camera 2 looks quite promising, still there is no word on the 3G/4G featured model of the camera, as the current specifications include only Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC connectivity. Therefore, we have to wait for Samsung to unveil the camera in the on-going CES-2014 which started today on 07-Jan-2014.
