Three photos captured with the alleged Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 have been leaked online, suggesting that the shooter will come packed with a 20.2-megapixel image sensor.
Samsung has released the company’s first Android-powered camera back in August 2012. As we are getting closer to its first birthday, the South Korea-based company is actively working on a replacement.
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 photos show up online
According to inside sources, the next-gen device will be called Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 and it will run on the latest Android version, Jelly Bean 4.2. Information about it has been leaked in the past, but this is the first time images captured with the shooter have surfaced on the web.
It appears that three photos captured with the Galaxy Camera 2 have been uploaded on a Google+ account. However, they have been taken down since then. Fortunately, internet users are vigilant and they have already managed to get a hold of them and look into the metadata information.
Next-gen Galaxy Camera to feature 20.2MP sensor
Metadata details suggest that the upcoming Android-powered shooter will be able to capture photos at 5472 x 3080 resolution, thanks to a 20.9-megapixel sensor which outputs images at 20.2-megapixel.
As the effective number of megapixels is more important, it means that the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 will feature a 20.2MP sensor, which is a great improvement over the 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor found in the original Android camera.
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 might be able to place phone calls
Sources have already determined that the device will feature Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities. However, many people are claiming that users will be able to place calls using the Galaxy Camera 2.
Unfortunately, this information has not been verified and it may take a few weeks before it gets official. Other details about the camera which require confirmation include a new quad-core Exynos processor and a 5-inch full HD touchscreen, which can be found on the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.
New Samsung devices to be announced on June 20
The South Korean company has scheduled an event for June 20. Samsung has announced that we will see the next-generation Galaxy devices, powered by Android, and ATIV gadgets, powered by Windows Phone, on that date, therefore we should hear more in 10 days.
