Leaked late last year and now officially confirmed by the company, the Polaroid iM1836 is an Android powered camera (running Jelly Bean 4.1) just like the Samsung Galaxy Camera, but that also throws in interchangeable lens functionality.

Shooting 18MP images, the camera comes with a 10-30mm kit lens, but will be compatible with all micro four thirds lenses with a mount adapter.

With both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth built in, you’ll quickly be able to upload super snaps directly to social networks using the iM1836’s 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen. There’s even full HD 1080p video recording onboard too.

Sounds great, right? You know what’s even better? It’s price – around the £250 to £300 mark when it launches ahead of the Spring.

Too good to be true? We’ll have to wait and see. We’ll try to get our hands on one of the cameras soon and give you a full run-down of whether it stands up to its lofty potential.
