Samsung's Galaxy Camera looks like a standard point-and-shoot but hides a full Android handset within. The Camera sports a quad-core SoC, has a big 4.8-inch display, and cellular data connectivity for sharing pics and backing-up to the cloud. On the imaging side, it has a 21x optical zoom lens, a 16-megapixel sensor, and can record slow-motion video at an impressive 120 frames per second.

    I'm looking at a press release that flashed into my inbox this morning, a notice from AT&T that the company will soon be launching three new smartphones and a tablet. Surveying the list, it quickly becomes apparent that all of these newcomers have two things in common: they're all built by Samsung, and they all bear the word "Galaxy" in their names. That should come as a surprise to absolutely no one; Samsung has been using the celestial surname to denote its Android smartphone and tablet products for years. But as the South Korean OEM continues to flood the market with more and more ...

    Does the Samsung Galaxy Camera stand a chance of making a lasting dent in the world of still photography? Not if you ask Jaime Rivera, but here at IFA we have the luxury of bathing in techno-lust without the need for in-depth analysis, at least on the trade floor. Our interaction with Samsung's latest experiment was fleeting, but satisfying. Our demo unit was responsive, substantial, and magenta (natch). We enjoyed the snappy performance of Android Jelly Bean on the point-and-shoot camera's 4.8" display, and the various amateur and "professional-grade" enhancements Samsung has built in to ...

    I still remember the first time I bought a camera phone. It was the year 2004, and the device was the Motorola V600 back when the words "smart" and "phone" had never been put together officially. Having a camera on a phone back then was cool, because even though it could never beat any point-and-shoot camera, it did come in handy when you weren't carrying one. Today's editorial is mainly focused on that paradigm. How often do you carry a camera with you? I'll admit I gave my old point-and-shot to my son after I bought the iPhone 4S, and I'm sure that many of you that own either that phone ...

    Way back in February, we saw that Samsung had registered the name Galaxy Camera. Samsung really likes registering those kind of names, sometimes dozens over the course of just a few weeks, and has a habit of never releasing anything for many of them. Although we were curious at the time if we might see Samsung release an Android-powered digital camera, like Nikon recently did, the hardware never showed up, and we were beginning to think it might be another dud. Well, that's clearly not going to be the case, as we've just learned that Samsung intends to announce the Jelly-Bean-running ...
