GALAXY-Camera_Back

There have been a plethora of new devices added to our forum as of late. While many had large scale launches, such as the Nexus 4 and the Galaxy Note II, there are others that didn’t get as much of the limelight. One such device is the Samsung Galaxy Camera. It’s a unique device. It has all the specs of a high end smartphone, except it’s a 16 MP point-and-shoot camera, and developers here at XDA have been hacking the daylights out of it.

First up is the HTC Droid DNA. HTC’s late 2012 flagship packs powerful specs, a remarkably high resolution screen, and sleek curves to make any gadget lover drool. Starting with the screen, the Droid DNA (and its Japanese cousin, the J Butterfly) packs the first 1080p mobile phone display. Given the 5-inch display size, this comes out to a remarkable 440 ppi. Not just pretty to look at, the Droid DNA also packs a punch thanks to its 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, LTE connectivity, and 2020 mAh battery.

Next, we have the Samsung Galaxy Camera. While not a phone, the Samsung Galaxy Camera is an interesting combination of a high-resolution 16 MP pocket . . . READ ON »
