Samsung Publishes Galaxy NX Pricing & Availability


Samsung has today published a report containing various details regarding the pricing and availability of its Android-powered 4G LTE/Wi-Fi enabled mirrorless camera.

The device has two price tags, one being $1599.99 for the body alone (no lens), or $1699.99 for the body together with a standard 18-55mm kit lens. The South Korean company expects the camera to be available to purchase from its own Web Store, as well as from independent U.S. retailers both in-store and online, some time during October.

The NX features a 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor, a 4.8-inch HD TFT LCD display, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 4,360 mAh battery. The camera will ship running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI plastered over the top.

This devise also includes some new exclusive Android apps that look rather interesting, such as ‘Photo Suggest’, which provides location-based recommendations of the most popular places to take a photograph, and ‘Store Album’, which automatically creates a digital photo book out of the images you select from your gallery.

Samsung justifies the hefty price tag by claiming that the Galaxy NX is a respectable professional camera that ‘houses a wide range of customizable aspects’ – which, in fact, it does. However, we feel the price tag is still a little too steep for what it is.
