galaxy_nx_intro_720Samsung has just pulled the curtain back for its latest Android-powered device, the Samsung Galaxy NX. You’ve likely heard rumors of this product over the last few weeks; it’s a mirrorless Android camera with support for Samsung’s interchangeable NX lenses.

Details include Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, 4.8-inch HD TFT LCD display, and a slew of photo and video settings. As you might expect there are plenty of options to choose from so that you capture the right moment in exactly the manner you’d hope. Smart Mode? Please, that’s just the beginning; there are more than 30 modes to choose from.

Other hardware features include a 1.6 GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2 GB RAM, and  WiFi, HSPA+ and, on certain models, 4G LTE connectivity.

One of the key features in this camera is the Advanced Hybrid Autofocus system which allows users to focus with speed that typical mirrorless cameras don’t achieve. Add in the 1/6000th of a second shutter speed and 8.6 frames per second and you’ve got one speed demon on your hands.

We will update this post with additional details as they come to us.
