From DailyTech: Following its major legal loss to smartphone rival Apple, Inc. (AAPL), Samsung is looking to turn its attention to fresh, new products. Yesterday, Samsung’s first Windows Phone 8-based smartphone was announced and today the company is launching an Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" driven Galaxy camera.
The Android camera looks intriguing, offering a point-and-shoot with a plethora of image modes and the ability to shoot 120 fps 720x480 slow-motion video.
Sort of like a smartphone without the phone, the Galaxy camera offers a typical next-generation 'droid experience, albeit with the extra trappings of imaging software and a bulkier form factor.
The camera features a vivid 308 ppi (1,280x720 pixel) 4.77-inch diagonal display, voice control, Wi-Fi, 3G, cloud backup, onboard image editing, and more. The imaging equipment includes a 21x zoom (21x, f/2.8-5.9, 23-480mm) lens and a 1/2.33-inch BSI CMOS sensor, according to Engadget. microSD and microSIM are both onboard. The camera is powered by a 1,650 mAh battery.
The phone will feature a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor (likely a Snapdragon 4 from Qualcomm, Inc. (QCOM)).
