Samsung AMOLED 12M is More Camera than Phone

 Samsung AMOLED 12M is More Camera than Phone
I’m all for convergence and I will admit that I use my smartphone for non-phone purposes more than I do for the actual voice calls, but this could be going a little too far in the other direction. Asmsung has just revealed its new Samsung AMOLED 12M, a phone with a 12-megapixel digital camera.

Also known as the SCH-W880, the AMOLED 12M looks a lot more like a standalone digital camera than it does a cell phone. For example, the camera barrel actually extends out of the body to provide you with true 3x optical zoom.

You’ll also notice the very camera-centric jog dial on the side (or top, depending on your perspective) for switching between the different shooting modes. This really is like a real camera. It can even shoot 720p at 30fps. The AMOLED 12M also offers Touch Auto-Focus for selective focus via the touchscreen display.

Rounding out the specs are WCDMA 2100, a 3.3-inch WVGA AMOLED screen, xenon flash, T-DMB mobile TV, Bluetooth 2.0, 4GB internal memory, microSD expansion, and a 1,100 mAh battery. Look for the Samsung SCH-W880 in Korea in mid-October.
