To be honest when I heard the rumor that Samsung where releasing a Galaxy Camera at this years IFA I thought it might be a bit far-fetched, well I was wrong as the company has just announced their new point-and-shoot camera, named the Galaxy Camera which will come with Android’s Jelly Bean OS, a 4.8 inch display and 16 megapixel sensor on the front.
This camera looks (if I’m honest) a bt gender confused, as in it’s not sure if it’s a camera or a smartphone, the front of the camera features an edge-to-edge 4.8 inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution, which looks a lot like the Galaxy Note, but then you take a look at the front and it’s a point-and-shoot camera with pop-up flash and 10 different scenario settings.
The sensor in-built is a 1/2.33 inch BSI CMOS sensor, capable of taking 16 megapixel images, with 21x digital zoom, f/2.8-5.9 apperture and a 23-480mm lens you can defiantly get much better pictures on this than any other smartphone out today, the weirdest part about this is that it also includes Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity.
There’s also a microSD card slot for storing your pics and a 1,650 mAh battery which they claim to last seven hours, as Jelly Bean’s on-board you can download practically any application from the Google Play Store and start using it, which will even include Instagram,there’s also a ton of sharing and sorting options including a search tool that will let you search your photos with data such as a face tag, location or time.
Alongside all of that there’s a couple of handy camera features included, ranging from Best Group Pose which will automatically select the ideal photo of you and you friends, Share Shot wich lets you send photos to your other friends with this camera and an Auto Cloud Backup feature, sending all of your photos automatically to the cloud.
The device will ship this October, for a price which is currently unknown, we will let you know when we do though.
