Part of the Galaxy Camera’s appeal is undeniably the convenience of a constant cellular connection, but if a $500 price tag and monthly data tariff aren’t quite your style, perhaps this new $450 model will be a bit more palatable. Samsung announced this WiFi-only flavor back in February, but it’s just now ready to hit US retailers, beginning later this month. Regardless of bundled connectivity, the Jelly Bean-powered camera includes a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear Touch LCD, a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and a 21x optical zoom lens, giving you far more photographic flexibility than just about any current smartphone. With only a WiFi connection, it won’t, of course, be replacing your phone, but even the cellular-capable model missed the mark there. At this point, it might be more reasonable to wait for a refreshed model, which could hit this summer, but if you’re ready to jump now, at least you’ll save a bit of cash.
