Aside from the brand-spankin' new Galaxy Note II, Samsung also dropped another bomb, one that was a bit unexpected and unusual. Pinoy tech lovers, say "Mabuhay!" to the Galaxy Camera, a 16-megapixel shooter that runs on freakin' Android! And here we thought them 'droids can only be found amidst tablets and smartphones.
For all those thinking the Galaxy Camera is a camphone, no, it's not. It's a full-fledged digital camera that has a macho specs-list. We're talking about a quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, Xenon LED flash, and a huge 4.8-inch HD touchscreen. Add to the mix an 8GB built-in capacity—which we think should have been made a little bit more bigger. But hey, don't fret, there's also a microSD card slot to expand storage by a max of 32GB.
To make this one even more drool-worthy than it already is, the Galaxy Camera also comes with full wireless connecitivity via 3G and Wi-Fi, GPS, and even an HDMI port. Additional camera goodies on this one include a CMOS senosr, a wide-angle 23mm lens, and up to 21x optical zoom. And to top things off, this one comes with Jelly Bean, the latest version of Android, making it as updated as they come. Ang tindi lang, mga ser!
The Galaxy Camera is indeed one impressive, not to mention unique, piece of gadgetry. For those who want one, you could visit local Samsung retailers around the metro by the end of the month and prepare to shell out P23,900. Expensive for a camera, yes, but at least you'll get to say, "meron ba kayo neto?"
