Samsung has today revealed that their new thinner and lighter Galaxy Camera 2 will be available to customers in the US from mid-March.

This comes after the camera was first announced at CES 2014 in January, featuring a 16.3 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, 21x optical zoom, 50GB free Dropbox storage, 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for up to 64GB of extra storage.

There’s also a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2000mAh battery and it only weighs 283g.

To compare, the first Galaxy Camera only featured 4GB of internal storage, a 1650mAh battery and weighed 300g.

Samsung say that the Galaxy Camera 2 will allow users to take photos more easily and quickly, allowing them to quickly share them on Instagram, Facebook, Google+, email and many more services using its on-board Android interface.

The camera will be available in the US for $449.99, but as of yet there’s no information on any worldwide availability or pricing.
