Samsung Galaxy Camera for Verizon clears FCC

The Android-powered digital camera could head to Big Red in the near future.

Verizon next in line to offer the Samsung Galaxy Camera? Samsung

A chief complaint of the Samsung Galaxy Camera is that it's only available for AT&T. That should change, however -- a Verizon model has been spied in the virtual halls of the FCC.

The details for an "EKGC120" Galaxy Camera cropped up this week for showing a version of the digital camera with support for Verizon's 700MHz LTE bands. Since the testing was conduced in early November, I suspect that the 4G variant of this connected camera won't be far off.

I'm curious to see if Verizon asks for $500 for the Galaxy Camera or if we could be in for a price that comes closer to a subsidized smartphone rate.

As nice as the camera is, its biggest drawback is the long-term cost of ownership. To truly get the most out of the device, you'll need to spend a minimum of $10 per month.
