Samsung has already slapped the Galaxy brand on phones and media players, and now there's a chance it's coming to a dedicated camera for the first time. GSM Arena is reporting that Samsung will launch the "Galaxy Camera" this week at IFA, a device with a 16-megapixel camera and Android 4.0 on board. The site also believes it'll come with the same 4.8-inch screen found on the Galaxy S III — we certainly hope the company doesn't skimp out and use a panel like the one found on the newest 5.8-inch Galaxy Player. It sounds like the camera may come with an integrated cellular connection, but it won't be voice-capable — it'll act more like a tablet and also be available in a Wi-Fi only version as well.
Other specs are minimal, but it sounds like this camera will include a 10x zoom, xenon flash, and no physical buttons on the back. While this camera sits strictly in the realm of rumors, it wouldn't surprise us to see Android start powering more cameras going forward — Samsung obviously knows the OS quite well, and Nikon just announced its own Android-powered camera. Fortunately, IFA 2012 is only a few days away, and we'll be there to get any details if the Galaxy Camera does get announced.
