Score another hit for the rumor party as Samsung has officially taken the wraps off from their Android-powered digital camera â€“ the Samsung Galaxy Camera.
The rumored name, Galaxy S Camera, and some of the specs may be slightly off, but most of the important bits, including the 16-megapixel (16.3-MP to be exact) sensor, 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 4.8-inch HD touchscreen (not AMOLED though), were on target.
And the good news is, the rumor misses were actually blessings in disguise. Instead of a 10x optical zoom, the Galaxy Camera actually has a 21X super long zoom. And it doesnâ€™t come with Ice Cream Sandwich. This one already comes pre-installed with Jelly Bean. Woohoo!
As for the rest of its specs, itâ€™ll come with 8GB internal memory expandable via microSD card, ISO of 100-3200, 3G/4G connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, WiFi, HDMI 1.4 out, and a 1650 mAh battery to power this Jelly Bean cam while on the move.
Iâ€™m still on the fence on the benefits of Android being used in digital cameras, but as a camera alone, the Galaxy Cameraâ€™s specs got me interested already.
