The new device runs on Google’s popular operating system, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It looks like a camera in the front and a smartphone in the back. It gives users the ability to shoot, edit and share pictures with their social networks. Through its voice control system, users can tell the device to “zoom in” and “shoot” while snapping pictures.
The Galaxy Camera has a 21x optical touch zoom lens, a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD display, a bright 16M BSI CMOS sensor and a quad-core processor. It also enables connectivity through 3G and 4G. Besides this, it comes with “Auto Cloud Backup,” which automatically saves photos into Samsung’s AllShare cloud service. Users can also connect to other Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy S III and the recently announced Galaxy Note II to transfer pictures.
Apart from the Galaxy Camera, Samsung has also announced two new phones, the Galaxy Note II and the ATIV S running Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system. The company says that the devices will be available in many countries from the end of October.
