Samsung to launch Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Camera later this month for $449.99Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
After initially announcing a Wi-Fi-only flavor of its Galaxy Camera that was described as "more affordable" than its cellular-enabled siblings, Samsung today revealed exactly what it thinks "more affordable" means. The company says that it's Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Camera will carry a price tag of $449.99, making the Wi-Fi variant $50 less than the AT&T-enabled Galaxy Camera and $100 less than the Verizon model. Expect the Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Camera to be available to from both Samsung's website as well as authorized retailers later in April.
While a connected camera that's running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean may not be something that appeals to everyone, the $500 and up pricing of the AT&T and Verizon versions may been enough to turn off some prospective buyers. Now Samsung is adding a more affordable model to its Galaxy Camera lineup, though, getting below that $500 price point and also tempting customers with a special red model. We'll just have to wait and see whether or not this slightly lower price will cause Galaxy Cameras to begin popping up all over in the wild, but it certainly couldn't hurt to try.
