South Korean electronics giant Samsung unveiled on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 its new product called the Samsung Galaxy Camera, a half-phone, and a half voice-controlled camera. The announcement was made during its Unpacked 2012 IFA conference in Berlin, Germany, along with the unveil of its brand-new ATIV devices based on the Windows 8.

As noted by Samsung on its official press site that day, the 16-megapixel Galaxy Camera runs on the latest Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) platform, which was perfectly created for those who wish to shoot, edit and share high quality photographs and video easily and spontaneously from anywhere, at any time.

“The Galaxy Camera opens a new visual communication era and shifts a paradigm in communication. With the growth of social networks and the prevalence of smartphones and tablets, people today communicate faster than words.” JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, was quoted in the report.

“As we increasingly articulate our experiences through pictures and videos the Galaxy Camera has been created to lead the way in this new era of visual communication. Communication becomes more vivid and lively with high-quality images and instant sharing anywhere, anytime.” Shin added.

One of the key features of the Samsung Galaxy Camera is its voice-control capability, where the user can tell the device to “zoom in” and “shoot” while taking photos; and to automatically share them as they are captured. It also features Smart content manager, Photo and Video wizard, Slow motion video, and others.

This new Samsung camera smartphone also sports a 21x optical touch zoom lens, a 4.8-inch (121.2 mm) HD Super Clear LCD display, 8GB built in storage, and a 1.4GHz Quad-Core processor; and comes in two connectivity options: a 3G and Wi-Fi version or a 4G and Wi-Fi version.

Samsung, which recently lost on a patent case from Apple that costs them $1.05 B, also announced two new phones, the Galaxy Note II and the ATIV S running Microsoft‘s Windows 8 operating system. Prices of these new devices were not revealed, but Samsung said that they will be released later this year.
