Samsung Inadvertently Confirms Verizon LTE Galaxy Camera

Samsung’s Galaxy Camera is one of the most unusual Android devices we’ve seen arrive in a while, and may just foretell a future where smartphone operating systems make headway into all sorts of products beyond straight-up smartphones and tablets. AT&T introduced the Galaxy Camera to the US last month, but there have been all sorts of rumblings that we might get to see the Galaxy Camera spread its wings to another carrier, all while offering some new connectivity options. Some FCC paperwork painted the picture of Verizon getting the Galaxy Camera, and now that’s essentially been confirmed by Samsung itself, posting a product page for the device on its website earlier today.

Just a few minutes earlier the page was still live, but sometime around 2:30pm it looks like Samsung got wise to what had happened and subsequently pulled the page back down. While it lasted, it showed the Galaxy Camera preparing for operation on Verizon’s network, where it will be an LTE-connected device. That’s notable, as the AT&T version lacked support for the carrier’s own LTE network, operating over HSPA instead.

While Samsung may have jumped the gun a little, things seem nearly ready to go for the Galaxy Camera on Verizon, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the model officially announced before the end of the year.
