Samsung Galaxy NX Passes Through FCC With AT&T LTE Bands
Samsung recently revealed that its first Android-powered mirrorless camera, the Galaxy NX, will be making its way to the U.S. before the end of October, but the South Korean company failed to provide any details as to whether the Wi-Fi only or 4G model will touch down in the States. Now, a recent FCC filing has emerged, revealing that the device will support AT&T’s LTE and HSPA data services, thus confirming 4G capabilities.
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 device also includes some pretty interesting new and exclusive Android apps, such as ‘Photo Suggest’, which provides location-based recommendations of the most popular places to take a photo, and ‘Store Album’, which automatically creates a digital photo book out of the images you select from your gallery.
Sadly, the filing doesn’t provide any clues with regards to an official launch date, but we expect the device to ship very soon. Samsung only has one day left to make its target of an October release, and this recent FCC approval means that we could possibly be seeing the NX launch tomorrow.
