This didn’t take long. The Samsung Galaxy Camera hasn’t even been out for a month yet, but Samsung and Verizon have announced an LTE-compatible version for use with Verizon’s network. The camera was actually inadvertently confirmed via a leaked product page last week, but now the announcement is official.

The 4G LTE version of the camera will be available Thursday for $549.99, which is actually $50 more than AT&T’s HSPA+ model. The camera will be available in the standard white, but Verizon will also offer an exclusive cobalt black color. They’re also offering a limited promotion that allows consumers to add the Galaxy Camera to their Share Everything accounts for $5 a month.

Those looking to pick up the camera for the holiday season would do well to search the Internet for reviews, as a quick glance shows that while the camera received good reviews, they weren’t exactly great reviews. The full press release is available below.

Connected devices are a new way to think about wireless beyond smartphones and tablets.

Having your smartphone or tablet connected to 4G LTE means you’re constantly ready and one step ahead. When a great idea comes to you, there’s no need to wait, you can save it as a note on your smartphone, e-mail it to a friend or share with the world.

Now, innovative technology is bringing 4G LTE connectivity to additional personal devices, such as the camera. Available online starting Dec. 13, Verizon Wireless will offer the Samsung Galaxy Camera™, the first 4G LTE camera in the world. With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, high performance photography, and Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the Galaxy Camera allows users to shoot, edit and share high quality images and video.

Social media enthusiasts will be able to connect to their accounts through their camera and upload pictures and videos of outings, concerts and parties as they happen. Shutterbugs and bloggers who post images on their sites will be able to upload photos over 4G LTE instead of waiting to use their computers at home.

The Galaxy Camera features a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD touch screen and runs Android Jelly Bean, so users have full access to Android apps from the Google Play store like Instagram.

This is all combined with other high quality features such as a 16-megapixel lens, 21x optical zoom lens and optical image stabilization for clearer pictures even while moving.

The Galaxy Camera will be available for $549.99 and come in two colors, Cobalt Black, exclusive to Verizon Wireless, and White. Users will be able to add the Samsung Galaxy Camera to their Share Everything account for the promotional price of $5 per month.
