Polaroid has announced a new Android camera with a very interesting and unique form factor. They’re calling it the Polaroid Socialmatic, which houses a 14 megapixel zoom sensor alongside a 2 megapixel front-cam for selfies. This thing runs Android inside a decent-sized 4.5-inch display, and in case you haven’t already noticed, it looks like a gigantic Instagram icon.
The Polaroid Socialmatic was named after its ability to edit and share shots instantly to all your favorite social apps, though there’s more to this thing than Android. It also includes the ability to print small photos on-board, with Polaroid’s Zero Ink (or ZINK) 2 x 3″ printing paper being compatible with the thing. It seems like a cool way to quickly capture and share memories with your friends and family on the go.
We don’t know many of the other specs powering this thing, though we imagine it’s not something that has to be super powerful for the task of snapping and editing photos. The camera is set to come out later this Fall, so no pricing or exact availability information is available to us just yet.
