Samsung is reported to be working on a Galaxy SIII-based camera phone


The rumor mill have just reported that Samsung may be prepping a camera phone (Samsung GALAXY S III Plus) reportedly to be called “Galaxy S Camera”. This seems to be following Nokia’s attempt to combine a regular smartphone and a professional camera, we’ve already seen that before with the 808 Pureview &¬†Coolpix S800c but Samsung may take the whole thing to a new level by specifically adapting it’s Android ecosystem to a camera world.

The device is said to feature the same 4.8″ SuperAMOLED display as the Galaxy SIII & will offer Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. We have no clue about the chipset to be used in the handset but it is reported to come in Wi-Fi and 3G + Wi-Fi versions exclusively. GSMArena reports that the Samsung Galaxy S camera is defined as a ‘Galaxy S III with a point-and-shoot camera’,¬† having no physical buttons on the back. It is reportedly 1.5 to 2 times thicker than an S III. The camera will feature a 16MP sensor of unknown dimensions, a pop-out Xenon flash and a curved right side to help with the ergonomics.

The device is said to make its first official appearance at the looming IFA Consumer Electronics Show along with the upcoming Galaxy Note 2 and other possible Samsung handsets.
