It looks like Samsung didn't stop with just he launch of their new Galaxy Note 2. They also announced a strange and cool new device. It's an Android based camera with some crazy good specs, built on the Galaxy phone design, and running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean! Here's the scoop:
  • 23mm f/2.8 lens with 21x optical zoom
  • 4.7" HD Super Clear Touch Display at 308ppi
  • ISO from 100 up to 3200
  • 3G and 4G connectivity
  • 1.4GHz Quad-core processor
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 8GB onboard storage
  • microSD
  • HDMI
  • A-GPS
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • 1650mAh battery

It also has a slew of advanced software features. Here's a few:
  • Access to Google Play Store and all of its plethora of camera apps
  • Features ten different shooting modes - this includes a "Smart Pro Mode" with aperture, shutter speed, and even more adjustments for experienced photographers
  • Can use voice control for functions like zooming, group-shots, toggling and more.
  • Has a "Best Group Shot" feature which can merge images with different faces for each subject
  • Photo Wizard - includes minor editing functionality and a filter application
  • Movie Wizard - does the same for videos
  • Share Shot, allowing sharing with other Galaxy Cameras or phones

This is a facepalm kind of good idea. It makes you wonder why we haven't seen more of these in the past!
