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.

Really looking forward to this camera being released. That or the Nokia N8 successor (Hail to king baby!).

A standout camera on an upcoming smartphone is what first came to mind when I read the title. I hope that's what it is.

"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." Not really. Just think about the Samsung Galaxy Player... But still, here's hoping that Samsung will finally release a cameraphone with a xenon flash on its Galaxy line.

if this ends up being the sgs3 (which i doubt will happen) that would be nice camera wise but would ruin the thin everyone is expecting
