After a few visible trips through the FCC, Verizon and Samsung have finally made the Galaxy Camera official. Available on December 13th, the Galaxy Camera features a beautiful 4.8-inch HD Super LCD display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and of course a 16-megapixel sensor with 21x optical zoom.

Because the Galaxy Camera also runs a full build of Android and has access to the Google Play store, users can download games, apps and even camera software tools or social options like Facebook and Instagram, to which they can post their newly taken pictures. The Camera also features a microSD card slot for upgradeable storage, as well as a 1,650mAh battery, for some decent battery.

Because the camera is available on Verizon, it also has access to the nation’s largest and fastest 4G LTE network, however, that ability comes at a price. The Verizon model of the Galaxy Camera will retail for an unsubizided $549, a cool $50 more than AT&T’s model, but AT&T’s is only HSPA+, not LTE. Verizon will also offer the same white model found on AT&T, but will also sell a “cobalt” black model too.

You can check out the Galaxy Camera on Verizon’s website.
