SEOUL, Dec 10, 2012 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
Samsung Electronics will open a new
era for camera with its newly launched Galaxy Camera as the era
for film and digital camera ends, the company's senior executive
said Monday. "The film camera era had continued between 1951 and
1998 before the digital camera era ended in 2011. Samsung will
open a new chapter of camera with its newly released Galaxy
Camera," Lim Sun Hong, senior vice president of Samsung's digital
imaging business, told reporters at the event held in central
Late last month, Samsung rolled out the Galaxy Camera based on
the long term evolution (LTE) technology, enabling users to
immediately upload pictures through the high-speed fourth-
generation (4G) network. It can be directly connected to Wi-Fi and
third-generation (3G) network as well as the 4G LTE network.
Powered by 4.1 Jelly Bean, the latest version of Android
operating system, the Galaxy Camera came with a 4.8-inch touch
screen and a 16.3 megapixel back side illumination (BSI) CMOS
sensor. "In London, Galaxy Camera was bought mostly by
smartphone users as Galaxy device users already knew about their
conveniences. Galaxy Camera was powered by 4.1 Jelly Bean like the
Galaxy smartphone. We will target smartphone users,"Lim told
Xinhua on the sidelines of the event.
Kim noted that the Galaxy Camera has various advantages such as
immediate sharing and easy-to-use user experience (UX), saying
that the model is lighter than DSLR cameras that are heavy, bulky
and difficult to use.
The Galaxy Camera has better optical performance than compact
cameras, Kim said, adding that the advantages of immediate
sharing, optical performance and light weighting will boost demand
for the model.
