Samsung Said to Be Prepping Android 4.0 Galaxy S Camera
The show much go on and it seems Samsung has quite a bit of interesting stuff planned for IFA.
Samsung has had a rough couple of days but it seems the company isn't going to let last week's billion dollar ruling in Apple's favor mess with its plans for IFA. Rumor has it the company is preparing to announce a brand new Galaxy device and, despite the company's tendency to double up on product lines (we can't be the only ones puzzled by the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Note 10.1) this is unlike anything the company has released before.
GSMArena reports that Samsung is working on a Galaxy S III-based point-and-shoot camera. Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S Camera, the device features a 4.8-inch SuperAMOLED screen and is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. GSMArena says this information comes from a tipster that has proven reliable on previous occasions. It's described as a Galaxy S III glued to the back of a point-and-shoot with the resulting device measuring roughly one and a half or two times as thick as the GSIII.
Set for an IFA unveiling, GSMArena's source says the camera will pack both WiFi and 3G connectivity, as well as a 16-megapixel sensor and a 10x zoom. Other than this, details were a bit scarce, but with IFA kicking off later this week, we're hoping to learn more soon. Samsung is scheduled to debut the Galaxy Note 2 at its Unpacked event tomorrow, and the Galaxy S Camera is apparently going to be shown alongside the 5.5-inch phone/tablet.
