Polaroid IM1836 Android Camera Snapped from Leaked Images

December 19, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Polaroid is running the Android way along with their new line of cameras. This trend is following Samsung, who launched their Galaxy Camera a few weeks back, and Nikon, whose point and shoot was released before Samsung’s.

The new model from Polaroid has some leaked images to offer, and this is courtesy of a Russian social media network. Polaroid had talked about an Android Point-and Shoot earlier this year during the CES 2012.

The leaked screenshots show the device having similarities with Nikon’s 1 J2. The company’s new product is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, and has been codenamed the IM1836.


Going down the specifications lane, we find an 18.1-megapixel camera sensor adorning the device which has a 3.5-inch touchscreen for display.

There’s pop-up flash, WiFi, micro SD card slot, and as you might have guessed by now, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Guesses are on as to what the processor would be, although don’t get too carried away with that.

Then there are the HDMI ports and headphones outputs, as well as features like Panorama and blink detection functions. There would be a lot more functions, and Android is a platform that is capable of carrying quite a number of functions.

Details regarding the lens option, pricing and release dates are still in the shadows, and my bet would be on CES 2013. That would be the appropriate stage for Polaroid to introduce their Android camera to the world.
