The Galaxy brand is about more than smartphones. According to TechCrunch, Samsung has revealed a professional-grade, mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses during a London event recently.
Samsung's next Android pro camera
The Galaxy NX runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, adding the ability to post high quality images directly within the camera to popular social apps like Instagram.
While Samsung has used the NX moniker for its cameras previously, and the recently announced Galaxy S4 Zoom is a hybrid smartphone and 10x shooter, the Galaxy NX appears to be aimed squarely at pro users.
The back of the Galaxy NX features a 4.8-inch HD LCD, backed up by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor. Featuring a 20.3 megapixel APS-C sensor, the Galaxy NX is also 4G LTE, WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0 ready.
The Galaxy NX is interchangeable with Samsung's line of existing NX lenses. A shutter speed of 1/6,000 of a second and 8.6fps shooting borders on the expected level of quality found in DSLRs, but there's no indication from Samsung on pricing.
Apparently, the Galaxy NX may hit stores in the UK this summer, but other regional availability was not announced.
