Is this the Samsung Galaxy “NX” mirrorless Android camera?

Earlier, we told you about a report out of Korea Times where JK Shin reportedly confirmed Samsung would be bringing a mirrorless Android-based camera to the forefront on June 20th. The verdict on that is still out, but another interesting leak today might have given us our first look at the device — or, at least, what it might look like — ahead of time.

This comes to us courtesy of Vietnamese outlet Tinhte. It looks like a very believable product shot for a mirrorless camera that is being called the “ Samsung Galaxy NX.” The name is quite believable considering Samsung’s current mirrorless model is named the Samsung NX200. The device is shown with an 18-55mm lens, a, 18-200 lens, and an 85mm prime lens, all of which we assume are the same standard NX-mount lenses that can be used with the NX200 and other NX-mount camera bodies.

According to the leaksters, the Galaxy NX will be introduced with a 20 megapixel APS-C sensor, and will utilize Android 4.2 to give users an interface for not only snapping photos, but editing and sharing them, as well. This would be one very exciting product if true, but we’ll have to wait until June 20th to know whether or not what we’re seeing actually exists. Would you buy this body and a lens or two for your next camera purchase?

    It look like a redesign of the NX20 with bigger screen and grip.
    Remind me a lot the old Samsung Pro-815 with its big 3.5″ LCD.

    If they wanted $550 for the original Galaxy camera I can only imagine how much this is going to set you back. It’s probably going to be the deal breaker for most Android fans.

    I didn’t know what a mirrorless camera was. LoL!! I learned something. I can see why these would be expensive.

    If this truly is it then I think they’ve missing the point of a mirror-less camera. They’re supposed to be small and fairly portable, with smaller lenses like pancake style fixed focal lengths. This looks fairly large and pretty much almost a DSLR. I don’t see why you’d want to buy this over a nice cheap Canon Rebel or Nikon D7100. At least for me I wouldn’t trade my DSLR for it. I’d only buy a mirror-less if it was fairly small like the Nikon V1 series.

    I own a Sony Nex-7, and this is rumored to have the same size sensor, so im very interested lol
