Samsung has announced the release of their galaxy digital smart camera powered by the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform. The device combines the function and performance of a compact digital Photography with the interactive capabilities of Google’s android technology. So you can add any of your favorite photo-sharing apps from Google Play.
The 16 megapixel smart-camera provides a 4.8” high-definition touchscreen LCD screen, that integrates voice recognition capable of controlling a number of functions such as zoom and shoot. The inclusion of a 21x super long zoom delivers crisp wide-angle photos through its 23mm aperture lens, where when paired using the ‘photo wizard option’ images can easily be edited and uploaded on-the-go.
The new device enables connection to 3G or 4G, allowing photo sharing and browsing anywhere. It also functions on Wi-Fi with Dual Band and Channel Bonding for extra speed.
Samsung isn’t the only company to launch a smart camera. Nikon recently announced The Coolpix S800c with its 16-megapixel snapper powered by an older Android 2.3.3 platform, Nikon’s camera has full access to the Google Play marketplace, so you can run any apps that are compatible with the older OS.
The device is set to begin shipping in October, and will be sold through camera retailers as well as carrier outlets, though pricing has not yet been released.
