Like Kodak, Polaroid has very poorly received the evolution of the photo market and is now trying to open up to other activities. If it adapts by focusing in particular on photo applications and miniature cameras, the former photo giant also offers tablets, like those seen at CES in Las Vegas, or smartphones, like those expected during the MWC of Barcelona. In early March, Polaroid should indeed present four models called Cosmos, Omega, Phantom and Thunder.
The smallest model, the Thunder, will offer a processor quad-core, a living memory 512 MB, a 5 inch screen and a 4 GB flash memory expandable by MicroSD.

Smartphones Omega and Phantom will share a processor 1.4 GHz octocore signed MediaTek, a RAM 1 GB, two SIM slots, 8/13 Megapixel photo sensors and an 8 GB flash memory expandable by MicroSD. The first will have a 5-inch screen and the second will have a 5.5-inch diagonal. As for the Cosmos, it will present itself as the model the thinnest in the range.

The OS on board these smartphones, to which Europe will be entitled, will be Android KitKat. See you in a few weeks for the rest of the features and prices.
