Camera-Centric Polaroid Power & Snap Smartphones Announced at CES 2016



Polaroid, the company that used to make cameras in the 1900’s had entered the smartphone by partnering with an OEM to look after the manufacturing. The company had announced a camera-centric device called Polaroid Selfie and few other devices at the last year’s CES. The Polaroid Selfie was announced with an OPPO N1 like rotating the camera and other mid-range specs, but with some issues, it never came into the market. At this year’s CES, the company has announced the two new Android smartphones – Polaroid Power and Polaroid Snap.

Scott W. Hardy, President and CEO of Polaroid said,

“Our new smartphone line complements a family of Polaroid products that embody what the brand is most well-known for; offering consumers fun and affordable ways to instantly capture and share memories with their friends and family. We’re proud to introduce the Polaroid Snap and the Polaroid Power smartphones as an affordable option for consumers who are seeking to do exactly that with their mobile device.”
