It looks like the Samsung Galaxy Camera and the Nikon Coolpix S800c are about to face some seriously stiff competition in the immediate future. Polaroid is reportedly working on an Android based, mirrorless camera, whose interchangeable lenses are likely to seriously up the image quality bar in the realm of dedicated shooters, booting Google’s OS.
The Polaroid IM1836 is rumored to pack an 18.1 megapixel sensor, 3.5″ touchscreen, and Android 4.0 (or higher) when it gets unveiled. HDMI port, headphone jack, microSD card slot, and popup flash are also said to be on board of the game changer.
Right in line with the rumor, one more rendering of the upcoming camera has made the rounds on the web. Here it is.
All in all, Polaroid’s upcoming creation look a lot like a member of the Nikon 1 series of mirrorless cameras. The 10-30mm and 30-110mm lenses on the leaked images also point in this direction.
The Polaroid IM1836 will almost certainly be revealed during CES 2013, which will kick-off early next month. We will be live from Las Vegas, so we’ll be sure to tell you all about the device.
