As rumored, and subsequently leaked, Verizon is indeed getting its own version of the Samsung Galaxy Camera, equipped with 4G LTE-capable radios. Other specs are identical to the international and AT&T-branded Galaxy Camera -- you've got a 16-megapixel sensor behind a 23mm Samsung lens capable of 21X optical zoom, equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS). On the software side, it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean alongside Samsung's TouchWiz software. Internal hardware isn't mentioned, but we imagine it's running the same quad-core Exynos SoC found in the other Galaxy Camera, or some equivalent chip.
Priced at $549.99, it's $50 more than the already expensive AT&T version. But Verizon customers will be able to add a Galaxy Camera to their "Share Everything" plan for a promotional price of $5 per month, which sweetens the deal ever so slightly. The device will go on sale this Thursday, Dec. 13, in white and Verizon-exclusive black.
