Well, it looks like Polaroid will soon be joining the likes of Samsung and Nikon with an Android powered camera of their own. The Polaroid camera is the IM1836 that we mentioned the other day. The key here, Polaroid CEO Scott Hardy has recently confirmed that the camera will be unveiled during CES.
Hardy, in speaking with Imaging Resource, stated that “there will be an Android powered, interchangeable lens camera introduced by Polaroid at CES 2013.” Of course, aside from the fact that the camera will have an interchangeable lens and be powered by Android — the remaining details remain rumor.
In fact, Hardy went on to say that “additional information and specs will be released during the show.” Simply put, it looks like we are going to be waiting to CES for further details. As to what was previously rumored, the Polaroid IM1836 is expected to feature an 18.1 megapixel sensor along with a 3.5-inch display, microSD card slot for storage, HDMI and Wi-Fi.
The Polaroid camera is expected to be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and have a pop-up flash, headphone out jack and features to include blink detection and the ability to capture panorama images. Bottom line here, unless we see some other leaks in the meantime, the remaining details will be unveiled in a little more than two weeks time.
