Samsung also launched the Samsung GALAXY Camera last night and I had a chance to try it out real quick, as in super quick!
The Samsung GALAXY Camera is an Android-powered digital compact camera that boasts of a 16 Megapixels BSI CMOS sensor with a 21x optical zoom. It makes capturing photos easy with the Smart Pro feature that lets anyone choose pre-defined modes or scenes without the need to change the settings. What’s more is that it runs on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean complete with the Google Play Store access and other Android features. It has a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD screen for your viewing pleasure, runs on a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, and to top it, a 3G/4G/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity! Yes, you can send text messages directly from your camera. How about taking a food shot and upload it straight to your Instagram account on 3G?
Speaking about the camera, it really is not just a joke. It looks real and serious. I mean, Samsung did not just slapped a 16 Megapixels camera on an Android device, it looks more of a digital compact camera that runs Android. It’s hard to explain. I only had a few minutes with the device just enough for taking photos of it and some quick tour of the interface. So, I think, you should enjoy more photos below while I wait and try to get a review unit. It’s hard to speak for a device that you haven’t tested.
Anyway, the Samsung GALAXY Camera will be available in the Philippines starting November, just a few weeks away, with a price tag of P23,990.
