Samsung is currently showing off a new model called Galaxy Camera, which will be running the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, further blurring the line between digital cameras and cell phones.
The Galaxy Camera is expected to have a 16MP CMOS image sensor, can shoot 1080p HD video, built-in Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G support, a 4.8-inch touch screen LCD, and a 21X optical zoom lens. Those are some impressive features.
Official specifications on the Galaxy Camera are still a bit unclear, as is a projected release date (possibly October) and a price. Samsung is showcasing the Galaxy Camera at the IFA consumer electronics show in Germany this week. It's the second Android-based digital camera released recently, joining the Nikon Coolpix S800c.
I'll have more on both of these intriguing cameras in my blog once more information is available, so stay tuned!
