As if the Samsung Galaxy Note II wasn’t impressive enough, Samsung also introduced the Samsung Galaxy Camera during IFA 2012.  The device offers a stunning combination of hardware and software to offer users an unparalleled experience when it comes to sharing photos.  The idea here is users can take amazing shots on-the-go and instantly edit and share the photo with friends and family.

On the hardware side of the Galaxy Camera, there is a 16MP BSI CMOS rear camera with 21x optical zoom, 1080p HD video capture, 8GB of on board storage, 4.8 inch HD Super Clear LCD display, and a 1.4GHz quad-core processor.  The camera found on the Galaxy Camera easily beats out the best camera found on a smartphone today.  While it may not replace a high-end DSLR camera, the Galaxy Camera offers great social networking integration thanks to Android.

The device runs Android 4.1 on board and comes with full Play Store access.  Moreover, the device features either 3G + WiFi connectivity or 4G + WiFi connectivity.  Samsung wants users to snap pictures and be able to share them quickly and easily.  There are a number of software editing apps that can touch up your photos and videos.  Also, any pictures taken can be shared instantly with Share Shot and each picture will be uploaded to the cloud using Samsung’s Auto Cloud Backup feature.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera is expected to launch sometime in Q4 at an unknown price point.
