Update: This post was originally published on February 19, 2013. In this update, Samsung has announced availability and pricing for the U.S. The camera will be available in late April for $450.

If you’ve been intrigued by the Android-based Samsung Galaxy camera, but can’t justify paying for a 3G/4G cellular data plan, then Samsung’s new Wi-Fi-only version of the point-and-shoot should appeal to you. The EK-GC110 retains all the camera specs of the EK-GC100: 16.3-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor (1/2.3 inches), 4.8-inch touchscreen, 21x optical, and ISO of up to 3,200. As a smart device, it uses the same 1.4-gigahertz quad-core processor to run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), but minus the cell connectivity; there are, however, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. 

The camera is due to go on sale in late April for $450. In the meantime, you can check out our full review of the Samsung Galaxy camera running on AT&T’s network, which is identical.

There was a time when the zoom feature on your smartphone’s camera would never be used, because the quality was mostly awful. This has changed over the past year or so, as optical and hybrid zooms have become a must-have feature, complementing wide-angle sensors to create a versatile and compelling camera system in your pocket.

Huawei has led the way in phone camera zoom technology since the introduction of the P30 Pro, with its astonishing 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom, but the competition is quickly catching up. Samsung recently went all-in on the zoom feature with the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which is capable of taking photos at up to 100x zoom.
