Samsung’s Galaxy Camera is half 4G phone, half point-and-shoot

­Samsung in collaboration with Nikon launched a dedicated camera that happens to include an Android based smartphone.

The Galaxy Camera comes with a 21x super long zoom lens and a 16 Megapixel 1/2.3″ BSI CMOS sensor. The device also features ‘Smart Pro’ technology (a series of modes that make professional-looking photography easy for anyone to achieve.)

The rear of the camera boasts a 4.8″(121.2mm) HD Super Clear LCD screen which enables it to double up the Android user screen. Another interesting feature is the Voice Control option which allows the user to control a number of functions such as ‘Zoom in’ and ‘Shoot’ through voice.

The GALAXY Camera includes a comprehensive set of 35 photo editing features through the ‘Photo Wizard’.

The new features take advantage of the quad-core processor, giving access to a feature like Auto Face Calibration so edits can be made in precise detail and with ease. It also includes a comprehensive set of 35 photo editing features through the “photo Wizard” application.

The Galaxy Camera will take a SIM card and connect to a cell network as well as to Wi-Fi (there are 3G and 4G versions). Which will enable users to easily upload photos to sites like Flickr and Instagram, and it can be configured to automatically back up shots to a Samsung or Google cloud storage service. Storage on the phone will be on Micro SD, which means up to 32GB.

The Galaxy Camera comes in two connectivity options: a 3G and Wi-Fi version or a 4G and Wi-Fi version.
