While Apple gets ready to ban Samsung’s Galaxy S II smartphone, rumor has it the company plans to launch a new member of the Galaxy line : a digital camera.Samsung will be debuting its new Android-powered smart camera.
It turns out that an Android-powered digital camera is actually one of the surprise announcements Samsung has made though Samsung having a strong presence in the digital camera market and also a very strong Android smartphone business. The camera is rumored to come with a 16-megapixel sensor, and run on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). It’s also expected to sport a 4.8-inch screen, borrowing from another popular member of the Galaxy line of devices: the Galaxy S III.
The camera is also tapped to have an integrated cellular connection for uploading pictures to networks like Facebook and Instagram while you’re on the go, but won’t likely be voice-capable.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is a point-and-shoot digital camera that’s as feature-packed as any mid-range to high-end Android smartphone. The Galaxy Camera actually introduces the term “smart camera,” which is how Google senior VP for Mobile and Digital Content Andy Rubin envisions the next level of digital photography to be. Some other companies also unveiled an Android-powered camera at the Consumer Electronics Show ; but it has yet to get an official release date.
Samsung isn’t the only company to launch a smart camera. Nikon recently announced its own Android-powered camera: the Coolpix S800c. While it runs the much older Android 2.3., Nikon’s camera has full access to the Google Play marketplace, so you can run any apps that are compatible with the older OS. It will be available soon.
