Samsung VLUU i7 Camera

Continuing with its recent history of camera announcements, Samsung has unveiled the i7. The 7.2-megapixel device's centerpiece is a rotating 3-inch LCD that adjusts based on its purpose: it can be used in standard landscape mode for standard-ratio photography or MPEG-4 videos, but also rotates 90 degrees for reviewing portrait shots or a more comfortable hold while watching movie clips. An SRS sound enhancer is even built-in to simulate 3D audio during movie playback, Samsung says.

The i7 matches up to the latest generation of cameras as well, with a 3X optical zoom lens, sensitivity up to ISO 1600, and anti-shake compensation. Launch details remain unknown, but the new Samsung camera should launch first in its producer's native Korea with an American launch to follow by the end of 2007.
