Earlier we reported on rumors that Nikon could be working on releasing a new Coolpix camera which should be announced towards the end of the month. Apart from its 28-200mm f/2.4 lens, not much else is known and it has been speculated that it could be the P7100’s successor, possibly the P7200. However thanks to a recent filing with the Indonesian Communication Agency, a certain Coolpix S800 has been revealed and according to the expected specs, it will be an Android-powered camera with a 25-250mm lens, a 3.5” OLED display at the back, built-in GPS and WiFi and will most likely be running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread as its choice of operating system.
It is also expected to support all Google Play apps. This is certainly does not sound like the “high end” Coolpix camera that was rumored earlier, but it certainly sounds interesting. Using Android as its choice of operating system is not new and has been talked about and done before. The Coolpix S800 is expected to be announced on the 22nd of August, so if this particular camera sounds like something you might be interested in, check back with us then for the details.
