Samsung Electronics has announced the launch of the Galaxy Camera. Developed to fit the changing ways we communicate, the Galaxy Camera combines high performance photography with the latest Android 4.1 platform – Jelly Bean, and wireless network connectivity, creating a brand new type of device.
“Today we are doing more with less and as a result, people are using their smartphones not only primarily for calls and connectivity but also for enhanced functionality – including the likes of a camera,” says George Ferreira, VP and COO of Samsung Electronics Africa.
“In fact, the ability to take professional photos and to customise communications has become a critical consideration when choosing a device globally and in many cases across Africa. It is for this reason that we have bridged the gap in the market through the Galaxy camera – offering consumers the ability to do just this, take photos, customise their communications and obtain instant gratification through the sharing of experiences – wherever they are.”
The Samsung Galaxy camera is for those consumers who wish to shoot, edit and share high quality photographs and videos easily and spontaneously from anywhere, at any time.
Additionally, the device is great for architects, interior decorators, fashion designers, tourism and the like – where the need to demonstrate work to consumers instantaneously is critical to turn around and productivity.
“The Galaxy Camera opens a new visual communication era and shifts a paradigm in communication. With the growth of social networking and the prevalence of smartphones and tablets, people today communicate faster than words. 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 instantaneous sharing,” adds Ferreira.
Andy Rubin, Senior Vice President of Mobile and Digital Content at Google, congratulated the Samsung team on their launch.
“When we first started work on Android, we envisioned building a smart camera that would take digital photography to the next level. The Galaxy camera is an innovative product that speaks to the openness and flexibility of the Android platform.”
The Galaxy Camera, boasting a 21x super long zoom lens and a super-bright 16M BSI CMOS sensor delivers pictures in brilliant quality. The device also features ‘Smart Pro’ technology, a series of modes that make professional-looking photography easy for anyone to achieve. What truly revolutionizes this photography experience is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and wireless connectivity, which opens up the device to applications for photo-editing, sharing, and much more.
Users will experience all of Samsung Galaxy Camera’s great features on a market-leading HD Super Clear LCD. With stunning clarity, incredible ease-of-use and unparalleled connectivity, the Galaxy Camera is the next step in imaging innovation.
