We have something special for all of you specially those who are followers of Samsung and those who love photography, so let’s begin with it.
Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Camera that was firstly seen at IFA 2012 in Berlin in August.
In a proffer to generate a novel class placed between Smartphones and cameras, Samsung Electronics on Friday launched its Galaxy camera in India.
“The collaboration between mobile and digital cameras has allowed Samsung to create the first connected camera using technology like 3G and marks the next era in the history of camera evolution,” said Asim Warsi, Vice-President Samsung Mobile.
The device is one of the first of its kind, although the concept has been around for years.
Samsung had announced that the Android-powered camera would be launched in India in before Diwali throughout the Indian launch of the Galaxy Note II in September; however the launch was delayed for indefinite grounds.
India is among the first five markets in the world where the camera has been launched, stated Mr. Asim Warsi.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is essentially a twosome of a camera with a Smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is erected on the DNA of Samsung’s awfully admired Galaxy S III Android Smartphone, and it shares the Exynos 4 processor, a quad core chip that is clocked at 1.4GHz. There is also 1GB RAM is provided along with 8GB on board storage, which is expandable by microSD card. There is a stunning 4.8-inch touch screen at the back, which seems like the Galaxy S III at the first glance. The Galaxy camera stands apart as a superior innovation by wadding in 3G/4G radios.
Samsung’s objective with the Galaxy Camera has been to create a truly connected shooter. They eradicated the “yes, I’ll mail you the pictures later when I go to home” thing by installing connectivity alternatives into the camera through by which images can be shared straight away i.e. Users can edit and share pictures from the camera itself. Talking about Android powered cameras, we have an option Nikon’s Coolpix S800c running Gingerbread, but Samsung’s Galaxy Camera stands apart from it in almost every single way.
The camera is available in the market from 23 November at a cost of 29000 INR

The peak of the camera has the shutter button along with the power button. On one side is the USB port and headphones jack. The rest of the connectivity options are at the bottom, under the battery cover. The device also abode a flash that can pop up with the press of a button.
The only absence is being the ability to make calls from it while it supports 3G capabilities via a SIM card. The camera has three customizable home screens just like an Android Smartphone. The right has three capacitive buttons representing back, home and menu.
According to our information Sammy is planning to update the device to Android 4.2 (especially for the Photo Sphere feature) soon.
It runs on Android with such remarkable hardware, the Galaxy Camera allows the users to download any app from the App store runs it on the camera. It supports intermediary photography apps too like Instagram and Panorama Camera 360.
One aspect of the camera that Mr. Warsi pointed out specifically was that it doesn’t come with German-made lenses.
Its voice control alternative allows users to manage a number of functions such as ‘Zoom in’ and ‘Shoot’ by voice.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is the most excellent Android-based camera that’s available now, but consumers should consider the cost promise that comes with being always connected.
Though it doesn’t allow making calls but it has the whole thing that a mobile phone should have.
