Looks like Nikon jumping onboard the Android bandwagon is just the tip of the iceberg as rumor has it that Samsung will also be releasing an Android-powered camera too.
But don’t be fooled, this isn’t just any digicam smothered with Android. This one will be based on – get this – Sammy’s Superphone – the Galaxy S III.
Meaning, this Android digital camera – expected to be called the Galaxy S camera – will rock a 4.8-inch SuperAMOLED touchscreen with Ice Cream Sandwich as its OS, WiFi, and another model sporting both WiFi and 3G connectivity. Quad-core? Not sure yet, but let’s just say we wouldn’t be surprised to find four cores under its more hefty hood.
On the camera side, current specs include a 16-megapixel sensor, pop-out Xenon flash, and 10x optical zoom.
That’s it for now but do check back soon ’cause this baby might not stay in the rumor bin for very much long. Word is, the Galaxy S camera will be unveiled at IFA, which, if you still didn’t know, already kicks off later this week.
Interesting, but I’m still scratching my head as to how Android makes for better digital cameras. It’s different, but different isn’t always better.
How about you guys? Would you go for an Android-powered digital camera?
