After the damaging lawsuit loss to Apple, Samsung was expected to come up with game-changing products to save whatever was left of its reputation as a leading manufacturer of electronic devices. And in this post-verdict era, the Korean manufacturer has launched an Android camera, the very first of its kind. Though the move is no surprise, the device is definitely a magnanimous surprise. Baptized the Samsung Galaxy Camera, it made its first official appearance at the IFA Berlin, 2012. Nicknamed Galaxy Camera, this device features a powerful 21x optical zoom, 16M BSI CMOS sensor, and a 4.77” HD LCD. But that's just the camera part of the device. Other than that, it also comes loaded with the latest version of Android, i.e. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and a mighty 1.4GHz quad-core processor. It is also packed with the 'Smart Pro' feature, which is actually a series of modes.
This allows users to choose from a range of preset options which will automatically adjust the camera's settings. And while the 'Photo Wizard' will make editing-on-the-go easier with 35 editing features, the 'Movie Wizard' makes the editing of video files as easy as cakewalk. In this era of technologically forward people hooked to the idea of social networking, Samsung Camera will bring about a whole new phase in visual communication since it also lets people instantly share images.
The camera also sports an 'Auto Cloud Backup' feature that automatically saves photos into the cloud via Samsung's AllShare, as soon as they are taken. And moving on to the connectivity part, the device will be launched in two options, a 3G and Wi-Fi version or a 4G and Wi-Fi version. With Galaxy Camera and other devices in various segments awaiting their launch, Samsung takes to an excellent means to recover from the aftermath of the lawsuit.
