When a major tech event is approaching, the rumor mill tends to go wild with alleged photo leaks and anonymous sources teasing all sorts of unconfirmed devices. The rumor has almost been dying of Android-based Samsung camera since we heard way back in mid-March. Now what it looks like Samsung is indeed planning to unveil an Android-powered camera to better compete with recently revealed Nikon’s.
Rumored to be known as Galaxy or Galaxy S Camera, the upcoming Samsung Android Camera may sport a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display along with Ice Cream Sandwich. Could be about “1.5 to 2 times thicker than Galaxy S3,” the camera will come featuring a 16MP sensor with a 10x optical zoom and pop-up Xenon flash.
WiFi-only and WiFi + 3G models are also rumored to be on the cards. The device is described as a “Galaxy S3 glued to the back of a point-and-shoot camera”, so Goodbye physical buttons, hence the mock-up shown above.
Samsung is expected to reveal the new device at IFA 2012 event, where we also expect Galaxy Note2 unveiling. Stay tuned for additional details.
