Verizon is set to considerably update their Galaxy Camera and will apparently have more features such as the S Memo, Smart Modes, Help App and a view finder. The device will surely be popular among bloggers, professional photographers, hobbyists and even reporters who like high-powered Wi-Fi cameras for correspondence. This 16MP camera runs on a quad-core chipset on Android 4.1, upgradable to the Jelly Bean version 4.1.2.
It is available for $550 on Verizon and they also have a more flexible payment plan for those who do not want to pay that much in a single transaction.
