Samsung lets slip Galaxy Tab 4 as Galaxy Camera 2 hits UK

Samsung has accidentally mentioned the as-yet-unannounced Galaxy Tab 4 on its website. Plus us Brits can now buy the Galaxy Camera 2.

Samsung has accidentally revealed it has a Galaxy Tab 4 up its sleeve. The device was let slip on the microsite for the Samsung Gear Fit. Have a look at which devices the Gear Fit is compatible with, and you'll see it includes the Galaxy Tab 4, even though Samsung hasn't announced it yet. What a mistake-a to make-a.

So we know a Tab 4 is definitely in the works, and it'll work with the Gear Fit. It's not mentioned on the pages of the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, but it could just be whoever was writing them didn't make the same mistake. We also know the Tab 4 will come in 10.1-, 8- and 7-inch sizes, just like the Tab 3.

I've contacted Samsung for more info and will update this story if I hear back.

In other Samsung news, the company's Galaxy Camera 2 is now on sale in the UK. The Android-powered snapper can be had for a penny shy of £400 over at Currys. Other retailers, including John Lewis, will stock it in a couple of weeks.

Thanks to Android, you can run apps on the Galaxy Camera 2. It's more powerful than the previous model, with a 1.6GHz quad-core chip, though it only runs Android Jelly Bean, not the latest version, KitKat. Which seems a bit of a shame.

It's got a whopping 21x optical zoom, and a 16.3-megapixel sensor. There's 8GB internal memory, plus an extra 64GB if you use a microSD card. The Galaxy Camera 2 has a pop-up xenon flash, NFC for touch to pair, and comes in white or black.
