Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., today introduced the world’s first 12-megapixel camera phone with full-touch screen. The Samsung Pixon12 (M8910) will be available in Europe at the end of June.
No word on price or a US release date was given, but the press on Samsung’s new device promises it will enable users to “shoot, see and share” pictures, instantly:
The Samsung Pixon12 enables users to take perfect pictures quickly and easily, thanks to a Dedicated Camera Power Key which gives users fast one-touch access to the camera function. Once the camera is turned on, users can aim and snap, capturing images as fast as today’s advanced digital camera. Samsung Pixon12 also features fast image saving for next shot, so users can move to next shot within around 2 seconds.
The phone provides the best photo quality by adopting innovative camera features. With Touch Auto-Focus (AF) tracking, users can simply select focus point with the touch of a finger, after which the AF function will automatically follow the object, keeping it in focus even as it moves across the screen. Moreover, Smart Auto feature allows users to capture the perfect images as the camera automatically changes the scene and mode based on its object, background and lighting.
Images taken on the Pixon12 are worth showing off to friends and loved ones as they boast digital camera quality thanks to the phone camera’s superb lens and Xenon flash.
The 28mm wide angle lens also allows a better perspective and more full capture of a scene for consumers.
After they are done snapping, users can re-live and enjoy the pictures on the Pixon12’s brilliant 3.1” AMOLED screen. The screen boasts a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 while providing power-saving features which increase battery life.
Finally, the Pixon12 enables users to easily organize and manage photos with multiple ways of sorting – by tags, file names, ratings, and time. In addition, the multi-selection feature enables users to pull up images in groups rather than one by one, making viewing and editing photos much easier.
With Samsung Share Pix, the Pixon12 lets users easily upload images and videos to popular social networking sites…
