Samsung has recently released the Galaxy Camera and Nikon has Coolpix S800, and well, assuming this latest rumors proves to be accurate, it looks like Polaroid will soon be getting into the Android based point-and-shoot camera game. The Polaroid camera is said to be the IM1836 which will feature an 18.1 megapixel sensor.

That being said, this isn't the first time we are hearing about an Android camera coming from Polaroid, however it is looking like an announcement may be coming during CES. But before we get ahead of ourselves, lets focus on what we have already seen in terms of the Polaroid IM1836. To begin with, the camera is said to feature interchangeable lens. And what may be exciting for some, this would make the IM1836 the first Android camera with an interchangeable lens set-up.

That bit aside, this latest round of details comes by way of the folks over at Photo Rumors who have discovered the above image on a Russian social media site. The image offers a decent look at the front as well as the back of the camera. And speaking of the back, that display measures in at 3.5-inches.

Some of the other specs are believed to include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Wi-Fi, HDMI-out, headphone jack and a pop-up flash. Other goodies include the camera having blink detection, the ability to take panorama images and using a microSD card for storage. So far there has been no mention as to whether or not Polaroid will have a model available with cellular connectivity.
