Samsung Galaxy Camera (EK-GC100) gets priced

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.

Samsung Galaxy Camera (EK-GC100) specs:
16MP BSI CMOS sensor
Sensor size: 6.17 x 4.55mm (1/23-inch)
Exynos 4412 Quad 1.4GHz

Optical Zoom: 21x
Focal Length equiv.: 23 – 481mm
Built-in Xenon flash
4.8” S-LCD, 1280×720 @306ppi

1650mAh Li-Ion battery
Dimension: 128.7 x 70.8 x 19.1 mm

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?

  1. @Qwerty yep.

  2. Um.. ok. I cand send SMS using a smart TV, can I call it a phone too? Last time I checked the dictionary, phones should be able to make and receive calls.

    EK-GC100 is a camera with connectivity options so you can send and share photos/videos easily online or to other devices. :)

  3. Camera nga. It works like an android tablet + the digital camera function. Kaya hindi nga talaga sya phone. MMS/Messaging is a feature of android kaya meron din sya.

    Gamit ka na USB Modem pwede ka naman mgsend ng sms sa Laptop/Desktop PC magiging phone ba ang laptop mo? hehehe

  4. @Qwerty Aba malay ko! Di naman ako gumagawa ng mga ganyan e. I’m just telling you what I saw its specs. Besides so what kung camera o phone ba to. As long as it satisfy your needs, that’s what’s important.

  9. I bought mine at GameExtreme mid Dec 2012 for the price of 20500. I tjing the price is just right. It’s like having an Samsung Galaxy S3 with high powered camera :D It’s just that, it’s too awkward when you use it as a cellphone specially when someone calls you even on viber and you dont have a headset with you. So I just use it as a camera and and for running and playing apps isntead. But overall, its amazing.

    • Yun nga lang, parang dko makita yung option para itransfer yung dloaded apps sa sd card. All dloaded apps nagssave sya sa internal mem. Unlike S2 na may option to move it sa sd. Anyone po na nakaka alam :) Thanks!
