Samsung Galaxy Camera is official, 16MP, Jelly Bean, 4.8-inch HD display
So, you think that the recently announced Nikon Android-powered camera is awesome? Just wait until you see what Samsung just unveiled! The Korean company made the rumored Samsung Galaxy Camera official for all of you, people, who like to take stunning photographs and share them with friends instantly.

What you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy Camera is that it has a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS 1/2.3" sensor, optical image stabilization, 23mm aperture lens, and optics that allow 21x super long zoom for capturing the action as if you were up-close. In case you aren't too skilled of a photographer, the "Smart Pro" technology will help you out with its various shooting modes. Rest assured that Samsung is also throwing in photo editing tools and utilities that make sharing images online even more enjoyable. Videos can be captured at 1080p at 30 frames per second or in slow motion at 720p at 120 frames per second.

The screen on the Samsung Galaxy Camera is no less impressive - a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD panel with pixel density of 308ppi. The processor inside it hums at 1.4GHz and has four cores at its disposal. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean comes pre-installed, and 3G or 4G connectivity will be available in addition to Wi-Fi. In case you are wondering, the device is 19.1 millimeters thick and weighs 305 grams.

Okay guys, don't get a wrong idea here, i am not a Samsung haters or what..... But as what i know was before Samsung announce the Galaxy Camera, Nikon did announce their own Android powered camera too, but as what i see from the user comment most of it are negative or saying that it is a useless gadget and etc..... But when it's come to Samsung, everyone like praising it madly and keep saying it is was innovation, while other OEM done the same thing they says that it is a waste of time or un-innovative..... I mean yes Samsung did well and bring innovation, but are people getting little bit too addicted to Samsung these days?

the Canon was done pitifully. it has an older version of Android that wasn't optimized to work with the camera real well and it has lower end specs. the Galaxy Camera has great specs, a large display, a beautiful design and optimized software.

I wonder what kind of cost this thing will have, and if Samsung may release one with similar capabilities, keep the good camera featuers but put in a smaller screen and some lesser specs for the non camera stuff.

Sony is already working on one, and so is Nokia, Canon will follow. You're probably THAT guy at the concerts taking pictures with your smartphone. Or the guy at the game sitting at the nosebleeder seats wondering why the pic comes out fuzzy. Your that guy that goes on vacation packing nothing but your phone huh. The award for "Guy that thinks hes a photographer cuz his phone says 8MP" goes to... haseebzahid CongraTulations

who said it doesnt have a phone function? Ever hear of VoiP? Skype? Vonage? Fring? Tango? Google Voice? They will all still make calls over wifi/3g/4g even if it doesnt make direct calls through a carrier.

lol, the smart TV already exists. Go to best buy and play with one. I have a "smart" Bluray player from them. lots of neat things you can do with it. Hell, it even syncs my google calendar to the player so it displays events on the TV if i want it to. If you have a samsung phone, you can use Allshare to instantly stream pix, vids, and full movies to the player without wires. People like to say samsung copies apple. Thats a fools game. Who cares if they look similar. Apple has nothing on the functionality of samsung.

Samsung was so jealous because of 808 that they decided to put an android into a camera. that's the spirit! It reminds me fight between Fedor and this neandertal big foot silva.

Copying Apple again! ok joke aside (If you saw) I hope it has a nice price, I can get a decent camera for 200 bux...... they are saving quite some $$$ in camera OS development

Wow. Didn't expect this from Samsung. Fusing the body of a camera and a phone? I actually am impressed. Direct competitor to Nikon's Android Camera phone and the Pureview.
