Samsung files trademark for Samsung Galaxy Camera

Samsung files trademark for Samsung Galaxy Camera
Samsung might have another use for the Android OS. The Korean based manufacturer has filed for a trademark on the name "Samsung Galaxy Camera" with the title expected to be associated with the use of cameras and camcorders. The question now is whether Samsung has in mind a smart camera similar to the Android powered shooter recently revealed by Polaroid, or a new Android flavored smartphone with a standout camera.

With no clues about the product in the filing, we are left looking at the hints left by Samsung in the actual name being filed for protection. While the company does put out a line of digital cameras, the "Galaxy" name has been reserved for its line of Android smartphones and tablets. Thus, if  the filing is not for a stand alone smart camera, it could be for a new smartphone with a 12MP or higher camera sensor and a Xenon flash.

The Polaroid smart camera, which was introduced by the manufacturer at this year's CES, is equipped with a 16MP sensor, 36-108mm lens and a built-in 3X optical zoom. It offers 18 different shooting modes. All Android Market apps related to picture taking can be installed and the open source OS is used for sending your captured images to social networks.
