Samsung Announces Android Powered Galaxy Camera

The Galaxy Note Camera is essentially a Galaxy S III with a point and shoot sensor inside. It will have a 16 megapixel backlight-illuminated sensor with 21x optical zoom, along with a pop out flash. On the back, you’ll find a 4.8″ HD 1280×720 LCD display showing off Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

It’ll have a 1.4 GHz quad core processor, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G radios, and all of this will be contained in a fairly slim camera body. It’ll have both a microSD slot and a micro SIM slot. Quite feature packed for a camera.

It’ll come with 10 Smart Pro modes, which adjust settings to take photos that rival professional ones. You can do anything from light trails to landscapes. Along with that, there are features like a photo editor, organization by time, location, or even peoples faces, and advanced sharing options. It will have an Auto Cloud Backup, which will upload photos to Samsung’s servers.

Along with that, you also get Android with the Play Store and Samsung Apps. Any app can be downloaded and used to edit, play with the photos and such. It’ll be released in the fourth quarter and will be sold with the help of carriers. Even cameras have data connections now. What do you guys think of this camera? Tell us in the comments!
