Samsung Galaxy NX camera coming in October starting at $1,600

samsung galaxy nx announce

Samsung has finally given folks a release timeframe and price to look forward to for their Android-powered Samsung Galaxy NX mirrorless camera that was announced a couple of months ago. The retailer promises to bring this thing out this October, and has stamped a $1,600 price tag on it for a body-only SKU ($1,700 for the body + 18-55mm kit lens). That’s quite the steep price to pay, but Samsung’s banking on the camera’s share-focused software to show consumers why their camera deserves that kind of moolah.

The Galaxy NX will come with Android 4.2.2 and TouchWiz on-board, and features 20.3 megapixel APS-C sensor, 8.6FPS of continuous shooting, 1/6000 shutter speed, and Samsung’s hybrid auto-focus system. As for the more “phone-y” specs in this affair, you’re getting a 1.6GHz quad-core application processor, a 4.8-inch HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable via microSD card slot up to 64GB), Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi N, aGPS with GLONASS, and more.

The aforementioned pricing is for the WiFi-only model, though Samsung has mentioned that an LTE model would be on its way a bit later on. We’re not sure what to expect from that in terms of pricing, but it’s safe to assume that it’ll cost a bit more. Be sure to check out our hands-on look from earlier this year with what appears to be a photo-snapping beast.

    So they have a mid-range camera, at best, priced as a prosumer-to-pro camera. Hmmmmmm….

  • NexusKoolaid

    For that price I could pick up a decent Canon SLR with an L series zoom.

  • Steven Skwarkowski

    Wow…talk about completely missing your target market. Just go snag a Nikon D7100 24.1MP with 18mm-105mm lens for a few hundred less.

    OK, I was initially excited about this camera possibly getting me more into photography…but, at that price tag. I’ll be good sticking with my ignorance, when it comes to photography…LOL. Even without knowing much about photography, I know that price is way over what it should be and people would still stick with Canon/Nikon over this.

  • Bart Heuts

    Lol, almost just as expensive as a Canon 6D body, a full frame camera which can also be connected to your phone through wifi. Who does Samsung think they are with this thing?

  • JBrowne1012

    I bought a Canon 6d for that much refurbished no lens and its full frame why oh why should this be on par with that? $1200 would be more reasonable
