Polaroid to Supposedly Launch Android-Based Mirrorless Camera

A leak from Russian social networking site VK claims that Polaroid will be introducing a new camera soon. The camera would not be the usual device we expect from them, but a shooter that comes with a mirrorless interchangeable lens system and will run on Android.

Polaroid has long discontinued its traditional instant-film cameras as it ran into different bankruptcy situations. The company signed an agreement with Summit Global Group in 2009 and Sakar International last January to produce digital still cameras slapped with the Polaroid brand. It is possible that the upcoming camera would be the fruit of such partnerships, but we cannot confirm the rumor just yet.

The leaked information claims that the Android 4.0-powered camera will feature a 3.5-inch touchscreen, an 18.1-megapixel sensor, pop-up flash, WiFi connectivity, and HDMI/ headphone out. It is designed with rounded edges similar to the Nikon 1 J2 mirrorless camera.
