We're live at Samsung Unpacked from Berlin, Germany, where Samsung has officially unveiled their latest smart device, the Samsung Galaxy Camera powered by Android.
Spec wise we're looking at a 4.8 inch HD SuperLCD display, Touchwiz Nature UX based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Cellular data is also on board in 3G and 4G varieties -- a data plan will be required, as well as WiFi connectivity, with a big push around sharing your content. The Galaxy Camera also has WiFi Direct capabilities, allowing local sharing with other Galaxy Cameras and compatible smartphones.
But, the Galaxy Camera isn't just an Android device. It's a camera. On that front, we're looking at a 21x optical zoom, and a 23mm wide angle lens.
Samsung has built in some interesting looking software too centered around editing and managing all your captured content. Best Group Pose for example, allows you to take continuous shots, and the camera will recognise the faces in the pictures, and then let the user choose their favorites to compile the best overall shot. Samsung have promised 35 built in editing features.
Once editing is out of the way, Samsung has included on-device management tools to keep everything organized. Images can be searched for by time and location, and automatic cloud backup is also built in. Additionally, the Galaxy Camera through its Smart Content Manager can create and manage folders, and will offer suggestions on which photos you should delete based on overall image quality.
The Galaxy Camera will be released to market during Q4 2012, although pricing hasn't yet been announced. Additionally there will be a choice of two colors available for the Galaxy Camera, white and black. Keep it locked to AC for continuing coverage of the event, and hands on reports with the device.
