Samsung Smart Cam Teaser
Samsung this morning launched a teaser page for the impending launch of a new line of "smart cameras." The company plans to gradually reveal features of the cameras up until August 13th, when the cameras themselves should appear. Few details are available today, but the name for the campaign, Tap and Take, hints either at touchscreen displays or else a whole-body tap feature similar to Olympus' tap control.
At present, the only smart feature in Samsung's lineup is the Smart Album in cameras unveiled just last month that auto-sort photos based on non-word criteria such as color and time taken.
The launch event should be worldwide and suggests the cameras will be available in the US roughly at the same time as in other countries.
