AT&T did, however, state that the Galaxy Camera will launch in the coming weeks and expressed its excitement for the device in a press release this week.
"Wirelessly enabling Samsung's Galaxy Camera will create a significant shift in how consumers share and communicate with photos and videos," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, AT&T Emerging Devices.
"By posting instantly to social networking sites or sending directly to another device, the person behind the lens is essentially offering family and friends the opportunity to share in the moments as they are actually experiencing them," he continued. "We're excited that the AT&T wireless network will help enable these opportunities."
The Galaxy Camera is a unique point-and-shoot camera that comes with a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD Screen. It also boasts a 21x optical zoom lens and a super-bright 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor for shooting high-quality images close up and in low light conditions. It is powered by a quad-core 1GHz processor and runs Android 4.1, JellyBean software with 4G connectivity on AT&T.
"Once again, Samsung has defined a new category of mobile devices and AT&T is leading the way to bring this device to consumers. The Galaxy Camera brings together Samsung's latest innovations in mobile and optical imaging technologies to provide the first connected camera running on the latest Android platform," said Dale Sohn, President of Samsung Telecommunications America.
The Galaxy Camera can also send still images taken to other Samsung and Android devices instantaneously including the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note from 200 feet away with the Share Shot feature.
