Samsung has refused to confirm reports that it is working on an Android-based camera, only to say it is looking at the idea. The non-denial, which says 'it is something we are monitoring,' comes in response to reports from tech website Engadget that it is considering an 'open' camera operating system. However, while the site goes on to speculate that Android makes sense, based on its parent company's use of the OS on its smartphones, we think there are other reasons for Samsung to use Android.

Samsung's statement:

'Samsung has not confirmed anything regarding potential use of Android or any other platform on future generations of Samsung Smart Cameras. Like any technology, it is something we are monitoring. Our present platform is more than capable of delivering a robust Smart Camera experience to consumers and we will continue to evolve that platform.'
