Polaroid is planning to launch an Android camera with an interchangeable lens at CES, the company’s CEO Scott Hardy said. The camera will join the ranks of Samsung’s Android camera running Jelly Bean.

"There will be an Android powered, interchangeable lens camera introduced by Polaroid at CES 2013," said Hardy. "Additional information and specs will be released during the show."

The camera is to be called the IM1836, and Sakar will likely build it for Polaroid. The camera itself closely resembles the Nikon 1 J2, at least in looks, and reportedly sports an 18-megapixel sensor, 3.5-inch touchscreen and Android 4.0 (though no confirmation on this last bit).

We should also see pop-up flash, built-in Wi-Fi, HDMI output, MicroSD memory and a 3.5-inch touchscreen.

CES is only a few weeks away, so we’ll see how this Polaroid camera fares against Samsung’s.
