A new Samsung Galaxy camera device has shown up on the ePostel certification web site for Indonesia, a good sign that the device is getting close to being released. The new device has model number EK-GC200 in the listing and we are able to glean from the listing that it comes equipped with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC support, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. Like its predecessor, the device is expected to lean more toward being a camera with smartphone bits merged onto it versus the typical smartphone with camera bits included. Earlier this month Samsung revealed they had merged their camera and smartphone divisions as part of an effort to get the two teams working more closely. That move will benefit their smartphone business, at least they hope, but it could certainly help with their efforts to produce Galaxy camera devices even though development of this particular device was probably well underway prior to the merger.


With the device already going through the certification process in parts of the world, that could be a good sign Samsung may be ready to release it during the first quarter of 2014, possibly at CES 2014 or MWC 2014.
