Samsung announces Galaxy Camera debut on AT&T
We do know that Samsung is a consumer electronics giant that has their finger dipped in just about every conceivable industry, but they are most famous for their range of TVs, home appliances as well as smartphones and tablets. As for the digital camera segment, well, it is suffice to say that Samsung is not at the top of most peoples’ lists when one talks about a digital camera, never mind the fact that the South Korean conglomerate has done pretty all right for itself where conventional, consumer class digital cameras are concerned. Well, this time around Samsung has carved out a potentially new niche for themselves in the form of an Android-powered digital camera simply known as the Samsung Galaxy Camera.
AT&T has just announced that the Samsung Galaxy Camera is headed towards the US carrier’s way, where it will merge high performance photography alongside the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, not to mention coupling that with AT&T 4G mobile internet connectivity that results in a powerful point and shoot camera that Android users will certainly be down with thanks to the presence of a familiar, intuitive user interface, not to mention being able to access the slew of your favorite Android applications which can be downloaded or purchased from the Google Play market.
I guess you can more or less say that this is the Android-powered version of the iPod touch – it does not have any phone capability, and yet is connected to a software market of sorts, and takes great images, too, at least for the budding photographer. Features of the Samsung Galaxy Camera include a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD display, a 21x optical zoom lens and a super-bright 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor that comes in handy when shooting high-quality images in macro and low light conditions. There is a quad-core 1GHz processor underneath the hood doing all of the grunt work, making sure it is responsive enough to your whims and fancies.
No idea on pricing or an exact available date, but just like winter (for folks living in the northern hemisphere, of course), it is coming. For real.
