Polaroid SC1630 Smart Camera Powered by Android

When you rummage through a drawer and stumble across an old photograph, you're hit with nostalgia that makes you remember the events you once experienced. Although, it is the memories that stir your emotions, it is the charm of the old photograph that makes nostalgia beautiful. The fading ink, the rough matte texture of the paper and the unclear view all add beauty to an old photograph.

Reviving the same feel, Polaroid has set a milestone in the history of cameras, by creating a smarter camera which has all the benefits a phone offers. Powered by Android, the new Polaroid SC1630 Smart Camera pays homage to the traditional camera, albeit with exciting features that makes it superior in the smart camera category.

From the front, the camera looks similar to an old compact camera. However, when you flip it, the camera turns into an android phone, which has a SIM card slot, a USB port, a Wi-Fi antenna, a GPS receiver and a 3G radio built in. With 16 mega-pixel, the camera offers automatic face and smile detection with steadiness, which makes it all the more easy to capture time-sensitive moments. While many cameras bear additional features, the one thing that distinguishes Polaroid SC1630 from its competitors, is its heart, which is powered by Android.

With Instagram in vogue and everyone having an account on a social networking site, Polaroid has made a conscious effort to ensure that its new model meets the expectation of the new generation. The smart camera-cum-phone, automatically stores the images and videos in the albums as per their date, time, location and contact. The SC1630 also provides some basic editing features like cropping, red eye removal, colour correction and even resizing. However, as the camera is powered by Android, one can download more than 400,000 photo apps to design and edit their photographs as per their choice. The best part of the camera is that photos once clicked, can be immediately uploaded on popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Below are some of the fascinating features that this camera offers:

  • 3.2 inch wide touch screen display
