According to a new rumor, Samsung is working on a point-and-shoot camera that will be based off of its Galaxy S III phone.
If you’re a fan of the Galaxy S III and photography, then you may want to have a seat while we blow your mind. According to a report from GSMArena, Samsung is in the final stages of prepping a new camera that will be based around the Galaxy S III. The tipster that filled the site in on this information says that it is something along the lines of a Galaxy S III strapped to a point-and-shoot face and will feature the familiar 4.8-inch SuperAMOLED screen and will run off of Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Galaxy S camera, as it is currently being referred to, will be reportedly 1.5 to 3 times thicker than the S III handset. As for the camera side of the equation, it is said to have a 16MP sensor, pop-out Xenon flash, 10x zoon (no word on if this is optical or digital) and no physical buttons on the back. It is said to come in both Wi-Fi and 3G + Wi-Fi versions, but will support data only and no voice options. (thank goodness, you want to talk about getting strange looks when you have to answer your camera …)
Nikon already announced the Coolpix S800c running on Android, so this idea isn’t entirely crazy, and we heard back in March of this year that Samsung was considering Android-based camera. The anonymous tipster that reached out to GSMArena said we may see the device as early as this week at IFA in Germany, and if so we’ll be sure to cover it as we’ll be at the show, but we’re still taking this with a pretty decent sized helping of salt.
And, yes, the image in this post is a mockup made by GSMArena, and not an actual photo of the device.
