Has your smartphone’s battery life been draining unusually fast since you updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat? It’s likely its camera is at fault.

Samsung first announced its second-generation Galaxy Camera almost two months ago, and although it told us everything there is to know about its specifications, it left out a price tag and a release date. But just as we were beginning to think the South Korean company may have quietly given up on the device, it has issued a press release to confirm the missing details.

Samsung unveiled its latest mid-range dual-SIM smartphone, the Galaxy Grand 2, back in November, 2013, and on Saturday, January 18, 2014, the white variant of the handset went on sale from several independent retailers for ₹22,999 (Indian Rupee) — approximately $374. However, if you’re in India and you’re not a fan of the white colorway, then this could be your lucky day. The South Korean company has today launched two new color variations of the device — Pink and Black.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 will make its debut on Sunday, February 23, one day before Mobile World Congress 2014, according to respected Russian tipster Eldar Murtazin.

Last week a series of screenshots were posted on Twitter indicating that Samsung’s in the process of working on a major design overhaul for its famous TouchWiz user interface which gets plastered over the top of the traditional Android OS on all of its current smartphones.
