Samsung at the Premiere 2013 event in UK announced the world’s first mirrorless camera with Android OS. The Galaxy NX marries Android’s advantages of quick sharing and editing with the picture quality of a high-end mirrorless camera.
Powering the Android side is Galaxy NX’s 1.6GHz quad-core processor, a 2GB RAM, 3G or 4G LTE support, a 4.8-inch HD TFT LCD and SVGA Electronic Viewfinder, access to apps from the Google Play Store on the Android 4.2 OS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS 16GB internal memory, up to 64GB microSD card slot and 4,360mAh battery.
On the photography front, the camera is more or less similar to the existing NX camera range with a 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor, ISO up to 25,600, RAW image support, DRIMe IV Image Signal Processer, Camera Studio and 30 Smart Modes built-in, support for i-Function lens and even the 2D/3D lens that Samsung announced few months back.
There’s no word on the price or the availability but we can safely assume this won’t be cheap.
