Android Powered Samsung Camera

Looks like Samsung wants to take a stab at making an Android powered camera as well.  Today at IFA they announced their upcoming device and I have to say, it’s looking pretty sweet.  Not only is it an Android powered camera, but it can hold its own against ANY Android device on the market.  Here’s the spec breakdown:

  • 1.4 GHz quad-core processor
  • 8GB built in storage
  • Micro-SD Slot
  • 4.8-inch capacitive screen
  • 16.3 megapixel BSI sensor
  • 23mm equivalent F/2.8 lens with 21x optical zoom
  • 3G/4G
  • A-GPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 1,650 mAh battery

That’s right.  This camera has more power than most of the phones and tablets on the market.  I’d love to give this gem a whirl.  This could really pave a future for Android powered cameras going forward.  That’s not to say that Nikon’s camera will be a slouch, but Samsung has established themselves as a leader among Android devices so they will have the easiest time in getting people to buy into this new idea.  But that’s just my opinion.
