Remember the Android-powered, quad-core toting camera that Samsung announced back in August? Well, it now has a price tag and is set to hit the US shelves on the 16th of this month.
As mentioned on our previous post, the Samsung Galaxy Camera has almost the same configuration as the Galaxy SIII (Exynos 4412 Quad, 1GB RAM and 4.8” display). The EK-GC100, however, has a lower battery capacity (1650mAh) and a smaller internal storage (8GB). In addition, Samsung outfitted this camera with an S-LCD screen instead of S-AMOLED found on the S3.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera is priced at USD499 or little over 20,500 in our currency. We have no info when it will be available locally, but it’s safe to say that its SRP will be slightly higher when it’s launched here, maybe around 22 – 24K. Having said that, anybody here interested in getting it at that price?
