Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 – bigger brain, better snaps

Samsung has revealed the second generation Galaxy Camera ahead of its CES show floor debut, and it's thankfully had a pleasant faux-leather makeover.

Featuring a 4.8in touchscreen which serves up the majority of the controls, the Galaxy Camera 2 features a 16.3MP sensor combined with an improved f/2.8 lens, along with 21x optical zoom.

NFC is also built-in for quicker device pairing and the battery has been beefed up from 1,650mAh to 2,000mAh, at the expense of a slightly larger body.

8GB of internal storage can be increased with a microSD card, and if that's not enough, 50GB of free Dropbox space for two years should be enough to satiate the appetite of even the most trigger-happy shutterbug.

The Galaxy Camera 2 runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean which means you'll have the Play Store's vast array of photography editing apps at your disposal for some quick on-the-go touch ups.

Powered by a 1.6GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, Samsung also promises better photos thanks to a newer image processing system.

There's no word on a price or release date, but we expect to find out more at CES next week, so stay tuned.
