Samsung Galaxy Camera – A True 16MP Camera Running Android 4.1 Jellybean


Nikon was the first manufacturer to make a smart camera – the Nikon Coolpix S800c. Now Samsung wants to enter that race. Oh, and they have a pretty strong horse by the way. Behold, the Samsung Galaxy Camera! It’s a 16MP shooter running on the latest Android iteration, Android 4.1 Jellybean.

As it’s primarily a camera, we’ll start with the camera specs. It has a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor and 21x optical zoom. The lens aperture is pretty wide, measuring at 23mm. It shoots FullHD videos at 30fps and slow motion movies of 720×480 resolution at 120fps. It saves the images in JPEG format, and the videos in MP4. The camera has a ‘Smart pro’ feature, which improves the quality of the photos.

That was pretty much everything from the camera department. Now let’s talk about what makes this a ‘smart’ camera. It features a quad-core processor, probably Exynos, clocked at 1,4GHz, 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS and GLONASS support, Bluetooth 4.0, 8GB memory plus a microSD card slot. It’s running on Android 4.1 Jellybean with the latest TouchWiz UI. It packs a 1650mAh battery and weighs 305 grams. Oh, and don’t forget the screen – it’s a 4,8 inch Super Clear LCD of HD resolution, which offers great quality.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera will be shown at IFA 2012, starting on August 31st and ending on September 5th. Regarding official release, we don’t have a word about it, nor about the price. But we suspect it will have a Fall release.
