Samsung, on Wednesday, at IFA 2012 consumer electronics trade show in Berlin announced its long-awaited Galaxy Android Camera. Bringing the voice-control capabilities in tow, the new Camera brings a larger display what you could expect for.
Aside of massive display, the Samsung Galaxy Android Camera also has something that you would love. Featuring Google’s latest OS, it brings the support for 3G/4G connectivity in addition to WiFi. Looking conspicuously similar to the Galaxy S3, the device certainly packs in a decent punch though.
We saw Nikon’ Android-based snapper some time ago, but the Galaxy Camera certainly looks to be a step up. Head down over the following key specifications. As well as more images are below.
Samsung Galaxy Android Camera Full Features and Specs:
- 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD touchscreen with pixel density of 308ppi

- Full-HD Video capturing at 1080p at 30 frames/second or in slow motion at 720p at 120 frames/second
- 8GB of internal storage
- MicroSD slot for expansion
- HDMI output for directly hooking up a TV
- 1,650 mAh battery

Rest assured that Samsung is also throwing in photo editing tools and utilities that make sharing images online even more enjoyable. It features all the usual options that allow you to share photos directly to a variety of social networks like Facebook and Google+. The camera also features voice controls so you can control simple actions like “zoom in” and “shoot” with your voice while snapping the images.
Additionally, the large screen, combined the camera’s 35 onboard editing tools, make it a great place to edit photos right on the device.
Users can also enhance the camera’s capabilities by downloading apps via the Google Play store. For instance, Shutterbugs can use image-editing apps to process images in-camera or even book a taxi.
Most exciting of all is the “Auto Cloud Backup” feature, which automatically saves photos into Samsung’s AllShare cloud service. It also can be connected to other Galaxy devices, including the recently announced Galaxy Note2 to transfer pictures.
Samsung hopes to bring the new camera in the international markets sometime this fall (Q4 2012). No words on pricing yet, but we suspect it to be around $500+. We’ll be sure to keep you guys updated when it goes on sale. Stay tuned for additional details.
