tinhte_Samsung_Galaxy_NX_1-580x406

Samsung seems to be pretty interested in the Android-powered camera market for some reason. Yesterday, the company announced the Galaxy S4 Zoom, a variant of the latest Galaxy S flagship with a 16MP sensor and 10x optical zoom. It looks like Samsung is looking to take it even further, however, and announce an Android-powered camera with interchangeable lenses.

Vietnamese technology website Tinhte has published a series of what appear to press shots of the Samsung Galaxy NX. According to the report, the device will feature a APS-C 20.3 MP sensor, as well as support for ISO up to 25,600, and video recording capabilities up to 1080p. It will have a 4.3-inch rear facing touchscreen and run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay on top. The Galaxy NK will also have a pop-up flash and accessory connecting pins. It will rely heavily on a touch user-interface, as the only buttons appear to be a power switch, camera button, shutter release and multifunction swivel wheel. 

The lenses, at least in the images, appear to range from 18-55 OIS to 18-200 OIS. When the device hits store shelves, it will most likely be released in a body-only fashion or in a kit that includes lenses.

It is expected that the device will be released on June 20th at Samsung’s event in London.
