The Korean company has filed for a trademark with the href=”http://www.uspto.gov/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”United States Patent and Trademark Office”>USPTO for a “ href=”http://www.samsung.com/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Samsung”>Samsung Galaxy Camera.” The name is described as being associated with — you guessed it — “cameras and camcorders.” There’s really only one thing to take away from that: Samsung is either considering or already working on an href=”http://code.google.com/android/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Android”>Android-powered camera, at least tangentially related to its current smartphone lineup. Aside from the name filing, there’s no technical information to go on.
