This news is definitely surprising to me, what about you? According to an anonymous tipster, rumor has it that Samsung has plans on announcing a Galaxy S III based point and shoot camera alongside the Galaxy Note 2 during this years IFA. This device will allegedly be called the Samsung Galaxy S Camera and will feature the same 4.8″ Super AMOLED screen found on the Galaxy S III. It will also run Android’s 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with other internal specs of the device yet to be determined.
The tipster described the device as a Galaxy S III that has been attached to the back end of a camera with no physical buttons at the back of the device. It’s also reportedly to be as much as 2 times thicker than the Galaxy S III. Other features that’s being reported is a 10x zoom, a 16MP sensor (size still unknown), a pop-out Xenon flash with a curved right side to help with the ergonomics and will come in Wi-Fi and 3G + Wi-Fi versions (only mobile data, no voice).
What do you all make of this? Would this be a device that you would consider purchasing? I can definitely see this device appealing to many amateur photographers.
