The Samsung GALAXY Camera (aka EK-GC100) is an interesting new camera from Samsung. I have actually been waiting for these kind of cameras for a while, because it’s an obvious next step to do what Samsung have been doing with the new Galaxy camera – integrating Internet and apps into the camera! It’s too early to say if this camera is a good one, but if you just read the specification sheet it sure looks great; 21x optical touch zoom lens, a bright 16M BSI CMOS sensor, quad-core processor, WiFi and 3G & 4G connections. If they just add some proper phone functionalities I guess that many would switch their Android phones for a device like the Samsung GALAXY Camera as the camera keeps becoming more and more important when you decide what phone to buy.
Full press release after the jump.
I’ve never heard of a cellphone with a built-in, out-of-the-box, fake call function – but apparently it’s available on a bunch of Samsung phones (including the Samsung Tocco). Pretty hilarious to have it factory made. Sure, there’s a bunch of Android and iPhone fake call apps but pretty far from built-in. They even suggest how to use it, haha:
“You can simulate an incoming call when you want to get out of meetings or unwanted conversations”
