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.
