Samsung sure does love their Android-based cameras. The Korean mobile giant recently unveiled the new Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 after debuting their first mirrorless camera, the Galaxy NX, over the summer. Now it appears another entry in the Galaxy NX series is the way, as revealed by way of a trademark filing with the USPTO.
The filing is for the trademark Samsung Galaxy NX Mini. All logic points to this being a smaller version of the camera that went on sale in November. It is likely to be cheaper, as well. The original Galaxy NX retails for $1,600, while the smaller, Android-less Samsung NX300 goes for $500.
The Galaxy NX in its current form carries a 20.3MP APS-C sensor along with a 1.6GHz quad-core CPU and 4.8-inch HD display. The NX features Android 4.2.2. We can expect Samsung to retain similar specs for the Galaxy NX Mini, though it would not be surprising to see the hardware trimmed to a certain extent.
The filing pops up just before CES, which leads to speculation that the Galaxy NC Mini could make an appearance at the annual trade show. It could, however, merely be a coincidence.
