16 megapixels

The Wi-Fi-enabled device features a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and a 21x optical touch zoom lens. In addition to Wi-Fi, the models will also feature 3G or 4G, presumably depending on carrier deals.

More editing tools

All told, the Galaxy Camera will include 35 photo-editing tools through the Photo Wizard feature, another sign that Samsung will push its camera hard for the holidays and aim at casual consumers rather than professionals.
