Polaroid CEO Confirms Company’s Plans for an Android-powered Camera

Polaroid Android camera

Polaroid CEO, Scott Hardy, has confirmed yesterday that the company he runs will launch a mirrorless camera running on Google’s Android OS.

The rumor made the headlines a couple of days ago, but, until now there was no official confirmation about the new Polaroid camera.

The Polaroid CEO didn’t unveil any extra details regarding the specifications of the Android-powered camera, but the rumors that appeared over the past week are giving us some clues.

The speculations are indicating that Polaroid IM1836 will be running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and that it will boast a 3.5-inch touchscreen display. Polaroid IM1836 will also come with a 18.1 megapixel sensor, pop-up flash, WiFi connectivity, HDMI and audio out.

Besides features like panorama and blink detection, the Android camera will also have a microSD card slot.

As I mentioned in a previous article, the upcoming Polaroid product will not be the first camera running on Android, as Samsung and Nikon already have such cameras in their portfolios.
