Samsung's TL220, TL225 Touchscreen Shooters See Double: Front-Facing LCD Helps You Frame Self-PortraitsS

Hey, it may not be a projector, but the 1.5-inch secondary LCD on these 12.2Mp point-and-shoots is pretty unique. Tap it and frame self-portraits, or play animations to capture kid's attention (and terrorize those with a fear of clowns).

The cameras have a 4.6x optical zoom, 720p-quality video recording, SDHC support, and have "Smart Gestures"—perform tasks by drawing on their touchscreens with your finger. The TL225 has a 3.5-inch (1,152k resolution) main screen; the TL220's display is 3-inch (230k).

Pricing hasn't been released, but the cameras are initially expected to launch in Singapore later this month, as ST500 and ST550. Apparently a Samsung presser in NY later today should reveal more details on U.S. availability. [CNet Asia]

Update: The prices are going to be $300 and $350 for the TL220 and TL225, respectively. Both launch in September.
