Samsung has unveiled a voice-controlled camera as part of a fall lineup of consumer gadgets aimed at setting itself apart from rival Apple. The South Korean electronics giant presented the 16-megapixel Galaxy Camera at the IFA tech show in Berlin on Wednesday. It comes days after Samsung suffered a costly defeat in a patent dispute with Apple in the United States.
Samsung’s Galaxy Camera runs Google’s popular Android operating system, giving it features previously restricted to smartphones or tablet computers such as photo organizing, photo sharing and voice-control.
The company also announced two new phones, the Galaxy Note II and the ATIV S running Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system.
Samsung says the devices will be available in many countries from the end of October.
