Samsung Galaxy Camera priced at £399

Update: Android snapper will hit UK stores this week

Update: Samsung's new Galaxy camera, unveiled at IFA 2012, will go on sale in the UK on November 5, priced at £399

Digital shutterbugs better start saving. The new Samsung Galaxy Camera unveiled at the IFA tech and gadget show in Berlin last week is scheduled to go on sale in the UK next month and it'll cost a rather pricey £399.

For that outlay consumers get a camera boasting a 16-Megapixel 1/2.3” BSI CMOS sensor, along with a 23mm lens for wide angle shots and a 4.77 inch HD LCD touchscreen.

The device is also powered by the latest version of the Android (Jelly Bean) OS and supports basic voice command functionality.

Perhaps the most enticing aspect of the new Galaxy is that it sports built-in Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity allowing users to upload their snaps remotely to the web. Users are also able to download a series of apps from Google Play such as Facebook and Instagram.

The Galaxy will be available in a 3G and Wi-Fi model or a 4G and Wi-Fi unit.
