Samsung delivers ultimate camera phone!

| June 5, 2009 | Reply

I love the direction Samsung is going with their products. In terms of hardware -  it’s good, you keep it, it it’s bad leave it out. Simple. As a Nokia fan, you get to watch Nokia making a good product – then producing a “successor” which leaves something you thought would and should have become a standard feature.

For example, in terms of creating a killer camera phone, Nokia HAVE one time or another produced a device which contained these features:

  • button for switching between still photos and video (N93)
  • dedicated flash button (N93)
  • Xenon Flash (N82, 6220)
  • 3x optical zoom (N93)

Imagine if the Nokia N86 – Nokia’s “flagship camera phone” had all that? Sure – it’s not in the 12MP league, but for point and shoot cameras which camera phones are attempting to replace,  do not require much more than about 7MP. The move from 5 – 8MP had not shown much if any improvement in terms of image quality as it just became a numbers game to impress the general public.

Anyway, rant over – introducing the Samsung M8920 with killer  combination of camera phone features:

  • 12 Mega Pixels
  • Xenon Flash and LED (possibly just for autofocus – could be additional for video) – sorted for majority of light conditions
  • 3X Optical Zoom – get closer to your subject and frame your scene better
  • Automatic camera cover – doesn’t leave your camera lens accidentally open to get clogged up with dust
  • GPS -  also for Geo Tagging
  • WiFi – possibly uploading media directly over WiFi (or any internet connection)
  • DLNA  – maybe viewing content quickly over DLNA compatible TV
  • “Huge” touch screen to frame your scenes and play back your images later.
  • 8GB internal memory for storing your media

I hope 2010 is the year NOKIA stops taking steps backwards.
