Samsung Galaxy NX takes Android cameras to the 20 MP with interchangeable lens level

Samsung Galaxy NX takes Android cameras to the 20 MP with interchangeable lens level
After the camera-centric Galaxy S4 Zoom, which is an Android device indeed, but with point-and-shoot capabilities, Samsung decided to get serious with its TouchWiz-ed camera efforts and gave birth to the Galaxy NX.

The mirrorless camera seems to take in the footsteps of Samsung's top NX 20, and sports a 20.3 MP APS-C sensor that can blast the ISO up to 25,600, with Hybrid AF. A 4.8" HD touchscreen is adorning the back, showing Android 4.2.2 under TouchWiz, just like on the S4 Zoom, and there are 1080p video capture abilities, and everything is backed by a 4360 mAh battery, and weighs half a kilo.

It is powered by a monster 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos processor with 2 GB of RAM, just like some versions of the Galaxy S4, 16 GB of storage plus microSD card for more, there are WiFi, HSPA+ and, on certain models, 4G LTE. Voice call capabilities are not included like on the S4 Zoom for obvious reasons. As with your typical DSLR camera, there is a dedicated image processing chip.

The range of 13 NX lenses from Samsung can be used with an adapter, including a brand new 10 mm fisheye, and the camera comes standard with an 18 to 55 mm OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) lens, while the aperture ranges between 3.5 and 5.6 f-stop.
