Android found its way onto the cameras and it is expected that time has arrived. Nikon has been known to be developing a digital camera, the S800c, powered by Android.
According to Nikon Rumors, they got their hands on the leaked images of the most awaiting product Nikon CoolPix S800C. The images clearly show that the this new model runs on Android, which confirms what the company said about the device earlier. As per the leaked images, Nikon CoolPix S800C will be available in black and white colors and looks like a plump Smartphone.
As published by Nikon Rumors, the camera will be a little bit different from the other cameras from Nikon that were launched till date. Especially, the camera runs on the Android operating system, which is normally seen in tablets and Smartphones.
From Nikon CoolPix S800C, we can say that Android is not only meant for phones and tablet, but also for other gadgets. We can see Android running on the embedded devices with the same flexibility and extensibility.
If you have a close look at the images, what you will see is actually the two sides of a coin. You will see a camera on the front side and on the backside of this ‘smart camera’, you will find a touch screen display that will be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 12MP shooter with 3 inch touchscreen for user interface and Android controls.
A close look at the images, reveals that the touch screen has a number of application icons like – home, back, camera, email, browser, music and other menu buttons from top to bottom.
There is a chance that the company may launch two cameras with Android, as some of the leaked images show different features. Nikon CoolPix S800C may also have a feature like – custom camera app and runs with a reasonable amount of time or when there is a shot you want to make. Other than this, we can expect some specifications like – Built-in GPS and WI-Fi that matches up the operating system.
This Android based camera will be available in 2 models. The first model will have a zoom lens of 10 X and the second one will have a zoom lens of 12 X. Both these models offer HD video recording, GPS, WI-fi and features an OLED display of 3.5 inches. Nikon CoolPix S800C are also available in vertical orientation. There are some additional specifications like – a 4.5-54.0mm stock lens and 12X Wide Optical Zoom ED VR in HD that are labeled on the front of the camera.
We are eagerly waiting to know more about the exact specifications of Nikon Coolpix S800C. Nikon Rumors are expecting that both the cameras may be announced to arrive "on or around" Wednesday, We will sit tight and wait until the company officially announces Nikon CoolPix S800C on 22 August, 2012.
We will get answers to all out questions like – Is Nikon planning different variants? Will it have access to Google Play Apps? Does this camera really interest you?
