    When we heard Samsung announce the Galaxy Camera 2 last week - getting an early start on all this CES hubbub - we were left scratching our heads a little. The thing was, looking at some of the hardware's specs, we found it difficult to suss-out just how it improved over the first-gen Galaxy Camera, launched all the way back in 2012. Clearly, some hands-on action was required if we were going to get to the bottom of just what Samsung was up to with this sequel. Picking the Camera 2 up, if immediately became apparent: this new edition is noticeably lighter than its predecessor - and ...

    As we were rounding-out last month, an unexpected follow-up to an unusual Android arrived on the fringes of our radar, with an Indonesian database revealing Samsung's work on an apparent sequel to 2012's Galaxy Camera. After 2013 only brought us the expensive Galaxy NX, we were curious to see how a more affordable, consumer-focused model might arrive. With not much evidence to go on, we had no idea how long it might be before Samsung made this device official, and as it turns out, it's not wasting any time: the first Samsung Android of 2014 to launch is none other than the Galaxy Camera 2. ...

    While 2012 brought us Samsung's Android-running Galaxy Camera, so far 2013's fallen short of delivering a proper follow-up. Sure, we got the Galaxy NX, but with its hefty price tag and positioning for more prosumer users, it didn't quite fit the bill. Last month, however, an image turned up that seemed to be snapped by Samsung's EK-GC200 – and the first Galaxy Camera was the EK-GC100. Now this apparent successor is showing its face again, as we catch it in an Indonesian regulatory database. This guy managed to slip in under the radar a couple weeks back, and while we don't specifically ...

    With last year's Galaxy Camera, Samsung managed to marry the guts from one of its Galaxy-series Androids with the hardware from a stand-alone digital camera. The result, while interesting, ended up falling in an odd middle ground, where it wasn't extremely useful as a smartphone, nor as capable as more traditional digital cameras. This year, Samsung's hoping to do things a little better, and we've already learned of the Galaxy S 4 Zoom, which looks to be a more phone-focused version of the Galaxy Camera. What about going the other direction? Samsung's J.K. Shin has been talking about a ...

    Here at Pocketnow, we've spent a fair bit of time with the Galaxy Camera. Samsung's peculiar Android device caught our eye at IFA, helped us shoot some of our behind-the-scenes footage at CES, and we even took it for a spin as a daily-driver replacement for a weekend, but that's been the extent of our interaction with the GC-100. That's because, for all its novelty, the Galaxy Camera has its shortcomings: it's a big, thick, and heavy device, its feel-in-hand closer to a small DSLR than the point-and-shoots it's meant to compete with. And there's no exceptional performance justifying the ...
