Samsung Electronics has announced what it’s calling the world’s first 4G interchangeable lens Connected Compact System Camera. The Galaxy NX has a 20.3 megapixel sensor and a 1/6000 sec shutter speed yet runs Android 4.2 and offers 4G LTE connectivity.
Lenses available include compact pancake lenses, an ultra-wide fisheye, zoom lenses and Samsung’s 45mm 2D/3D lens for shooting 3D movies.
Simon Stanford, Vice President of the IT & Mobile Division at Samsung UK & Ireland, said “We’re excited to be leading the way in innovation with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy NX. The aim of this device is to combine the high image quality associated with the NX camera with the ease of use and speed of 4G capability with Android. Perfect for taking incredible images and sharing them quickly.”
Features on the camera include the ability to record animated GIFs and an option called Photo Suggest, which recommends popular photography spots based on the user’s location.
A 3G/4G version of the Galaxy NX will be available to buy in the UK this summer.
