In case you were living under a rock today, Samsung has officially unveiled both the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Camera. Both are poised to be juggernauts in their respective spaces, with the former being a point and shoot camera that straddles the line between powerful consumer camera and superphone (except it doesn’t have any phone radios).
To quickly sum it up, the Galaxy Note 2 will feature a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED HD display, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel HD camera with a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, Samsung’s S Pen technology for use with TouchWiz on top of Android 4.1, and more.
The Galaxy Camera pulls out all the stops with a 16 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and 21x optical zoom. Its live viewfinder is a huge 4.8 inch touchscreen, and inside is Android 4.1 and some nice features specific to the digital photographer inside you. Specifically, Pro Mode will give you the tools you need to take a variety of different shots like a pro without needing to be one.
