Samsung's Galaxy Camera: 16MP Sensor, Exynos Chip + Android Jelly Bean

Well, I wasn't expecting this. Samsung just released a Galaxy Camera, whose specs are truly outstanding. We're talking a 16MP sensor, a 1.4GHz Exynos processor, 21x zoom lens and 4.8" HD SLCD display 'round back. I am shocked. Not only is this thing able to zoom incredibly close, but it's also got all the functionality of an Android phone (minus the calling part), and comes with Android 4.1/ Jelly Bean baked in. Photos can easily be shared over WiFi, 3G or 4G.

Full specs:

  • 1.4 GHz processor
  • 1,650 mAh battery
  • 8GB memory
  • microSDSC, microSDHC and microSDXC.
  • Android 4.1 / Jelly Bean
  • Google Play
  • 21x optical zoom lens
  • 1080p video recording
  • 3G/ WiFi and 4G/WiFi models available

  • Dvoraak: can you buy me one, too?

    Anna F: I like that the screen is quite large as I'm often frustrated by classic point-and-shoots and their tiny screens.

    Glostermeteor: Okay....

    Stefan: I think this would be too big to work as a phone. HA.

    Patrick: Agreed

  • Unless this think takes crap pictures it's gonna be a Christmas present for my wife. I just hope she can get used to Android.

  • Wow. I'm speechless. When I first heard the rumor (well, actually "read" the rumor) I didn't set my hopes very high; Android powered cameras have never been particularly good. But this is something else, really. I think I'm gonna buy it if the price is right. If only the screen was a little bit smaller...

  • Apple sucks

  • Hey this is almost exactly what Eric was talking about a while back. Just why they left the phone part out is a mystery - at least with a Headset it should be made to work!

    Finally a phone with a decent camera... only they lost the phone on the way... *roll eyes*

  • @Jason, wow gotta download it as I use my GNote as my primary point and shoot. Thanks for the tip.

    Sorry Nikon, was considering getting your Coolpix droid but looks like the good ole boys at Samsung beat you by a mile even before your camera got to the shelves.

    21x optical zoom vs 10x, Android 4.1 vs 2.3 plus micro SD support means my next point and shoot is gonna be a Galaxy S to go with a Note 2. :)

    Steven and Eric, can you please go up the stage and tell that Samsung VP to shut up already, they're gonna get my money!!!

  • @Patrick that is true but F-Stop will work on all Android devices. The "Smart Content Manager" will probably only be available on this device or Samsung devices.

  • I think that smartphones are only scratching the true potential of Android. Now we are seeing the OS in other devices. This is what makes android waaaay better than the other one, who thinks they have a patent on innovation.

  • Samsung trying to peek into sony cybershots design now...lol...but whatever....Samsung implies creativity!!

  • @Jason, I think Samsung mentioned that the camera also organizes the photos for you automatically.

    Plus, through WiFi direct, you can instantly send out the pictures as it is taken to compatible devices, plus use your android phone as a remote control and its screen as a remote viewfinder.

  • it's worth buying for, how I wish it's dual-core or better quad-core hehe

  • Pair this with F-Stop Media Gallery and your pictures can be automatically organized while you take pictures! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fstop.photo
