Samsung launches new super-zoom camera, Android nowhere to be seen

Well, what do you know! Samsung has just launched a gadget without Android on board.

Following on from the launch of the Galaxy S4 Zoom and Galaxy NX hybrid camera, both running Google’s OS, the company has gone back to basics with the launch of its WB110 range.

The new bridge camera follows on from last years WB100 snapper and in doing so boosts the sensor from 16 to 20-megapixels and brings a wide-angled 22.3mm lens into play.

The camera keeps the gigantic 26x optical zoom, which still sits behind some of the super-zooms on the market, but should be ample for most occasions.

The device, which packs a 3-inch LCD display, ISO settings ranging up to 3200 and the opportunity to to shoot 720p video. It’ll be available in red and black too.

Samsung hasn’t revealed when it expected the device to go on sale and hasn’t announced an RRP either.

Given the predecessor is now available for a mere £100 don’t expect it to break the bank.
