Four new Samsung cameras do be announced soon, including the “Panasonic LX3 killer”

There were several reports that Samsung is about to announce a new compact camera with a fast f/1.8 lens and an 1/1.8″ image sensor (see all previous Samsung rumors here). This camera was labeled as the "Panasonic LX3 killer".

I think the camera in question is the fist model in the picture below (click on image to enlarge). The second model looks like a video cam, similar to the Kodak PlaySport. I don't have detailed specs or models names, but according to the previous rumors from dpreview the "LX3 killer" should have:

  • New 1/1.8″ CMOS sensor
  • 24mm, 3x optical zoom. f/1.8 lens
  • Swivel rear screen

Expect an official announcement during PMA in the next few days.

Update - a reader just added this comment:

The second camera from the right is the WB2000:

  • CMOS Backlit 10MPx (1/2.4″), probably the Sony Exmor R
  • 24-120mm f/2.8-5.6
  • HD 1080p/30fps
  • Sweet Panorama
  • 10fps
  • 3″ AMOLED display
