Remember the Socialmatic camera concept that was unveiled back in 2012? Well you might have heard that the camera would be made a reality by none other than Polaroid, and now thanks to an announcement made by the company, it has been revealed that the Socialmatic camera would be seeing a release in the fall of 2014. Full specifications of the camera along with its pricing and a more specific release date have not been mentioned, but according to Polaroid’s press release, they expect to share some of these details in the coming months as the release date gets closer.
For those hearing about the Socialmatic camera for the first time, this is a camera that was originally inspired by Instagram whereby users could take photos with filters and upload them in a square format. The camera concept took that idea but added a feature that would allow users to print photos instantly, much like Polaroid’s cameras, and with the rather unique design which is somewhat reminiscent of Instagram’s logo, but thankfully changed to avoid a potential lawsuit (which we’re guessing Polaroid has had enough of).
The camera is expected to sport a 14MP main camera and will feature a secondary 2MP camera, along with built-in WiFi to post photos onto social networking websites. The camera will also feature Bluetooth technology to allow the sharing of photos through smartphones or tablets, and will be powered by Android. If anything it looks like a fun camera to have, so if you’d like to know more, check back with us at a later date for additional details such as pricing and availability!
