Samsung Galaxy Camera up for India pre-orders

Samsung's Android-based Galaxy Camera is now up for pre-orders from Samsung's India online store.

As is customary with Samsung India's online pre-orders, there is mention of exact price or release date. Customers are expected to cough up Rs. 3,000 to book their Galaxy Camera unit in choice of Black or White. Samsung is offering a 16GB microSD with every pre-order to sweeten the deal.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera features a 16-megapixel sensor with a f/2.8 aperture and 23mm-480mm lens with 21x optical zoom. Under the hood, the camera is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor. It features a 4.8-inch S-LCD display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels translating into 308ppi. The camera comes with 8GB of internal storage with an option of adding another 32GB via microSD.

Connectivity options include 3G (HSPA+ 21Mbps), HDMI 1.4, WiFi a/b/g/n, WiFi HT40, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. While the camera offers micro-SIM support, it does not feature voice calling. Apart from this, the camera also has 1,650 mAh battery that Samsung claims can last up to seven hours. The camera runs on Android 4.1 with Google Play Store support, so it can run Android apps just like an Android mobile.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Camera back in August at IFA 2012 in Berlin. It later announced plans to launch the camera in India by mid-November, so it seems to have stuck to the release schedule.

Nikon unveiled an Android-based camera of its own, Coolpix S800c, way back in August. The camera was recently launched in India carrying a price tag of Rs 20,950.
