We first saw Samsung's new Galaxy Camera back at IFA, and now we know where US customers will be able to pick one up: none other than AT&T. The 16-megapixel camera will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean when it arrives, and the carrier notes that it will support "AT&T 4G" mobile connectivity — unfortunately, there's no mention of LTE, so it's likely the camera will just feature support for AT&T's HSPA+ network instead.

The Galaxy Camera is an intriguing hybrid, with a quad-core 1 GHz processor, 4.8-inch screen, and a 21x optical zoom. Whether consumers will be intrigued enough to give the device a whirl will no doubt depend largely on the product's price — and that's one detail AT&T is unfortunately not revealing at the moment. However, we won't have to wait too long: it will announce the cost when the Galaxy Camera goes on sale sometime "in the coming weeks."

Update: Android Central confirms that the Samsung Galaxy Camera will not support LTE.
