Even with its mobile products possibly banned from the US market after Apple’s legal victory against it last week, Samsung is pressing on with more new product releases for this fiscal year at the ongoing IFA 2012. This including the long rumored Samsung Galaxy Camera. A convergence of mobile phone and compact point-and-shoot digital camera, the Samsung Galaxy Camera features a 16.3 megapixel CMOS image sensor, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, and a 4.8-inch touch-screen LCD display. Not linked to any particular cellular services, users can still make calls and/or video chats via the various VoIP providers such as Skype or Vonage. And while there is an ongoing debate on whether it or the Nokia 808 PureView deserves the title as the “first smartphone-camera hybrid”, the Samsung Galaxy Camera wins the claim as the first hybrid to feature the Android OS with the new Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean” variant.
Comes with a 21X zoom, 23-481mm F2.8 lens, the Samsung Galaxy Camera will be available in either a 3G + Wi-Fi or a 4G + Wi-Fi version. Official launch date and pricing to be determine at a later date.
