Samsung GALAXY Camera - RM1899

Samsung GALAXY Camera was officially announced today in Malaysia with the price tag of RM1899. It will be available for sale starting tomorrow (29th Nov 2012).
It has a screen display size of 4.77-inch Super Clear LCD capable of 1280 x 720 resolution. In terms of connectivities, GALAXY Camera has built-in 3G and WiFi with DLNA and Samsung Kies connectivity as well. Obviously HDMI 1.4 is a standard as well. The camera is powered by a quad-core 1.4GHz processor with the Android Jelly Bean 4.1.

Just so that we don't forget this is a camera, it has 16MP with 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor. The lens is f = 4.1 - 86.1mm (35mm film equivalent: 23 - 483mm) with 21x zooming. Internal storage capacity of 8GB with extension via microSD card capable of 64GB SDXC. Battery capacity of 1650mAh with microUSB charging capability. The device comes in White and Cobalt Black.

So, what's the difference between a normal camera and the GALAXY Camera? Connectivity.
Powered by Android OS with built-in 3G and WiFi connectivity, sharing a picture is definitely much easier and faster. No more hard-wired transfer from the camera to the computer and sharing via internet application like Facebook or Twitter. You can now do it directly on the camera. With DLNA and HDMI, sharing pictures or videos at home is simple. Although it does not allow you to make phone calls, you should be able to perform internet calls for example Skype.
