London — Samsung unveiled a mirrorless compact system camera (CSC) with built-in 3G/4G LTE connectivity on Thursday.
Samsung’s Galaxy NX camera (pricing and availability to be announced later) is an interchangeable-lens cousin to the Galaxy point-and-shoot camera introduced last year.
The CSC version is powered by 1.6GHz quad-core processor and is based on the Android 4.2 platform. It features a 20.3-megapixel sensor, Hybrid Autofocus (AF) system, a 4.8-inch HD LCD touchscreen and SVGA electronic viewfinder.
In addition to 3G/4G LTE, the camera includes built-in Wi-Fi connectivity wireless image and video sharing.
Other features include “Share Shot,” ChatOn and AllShare Play, similar to Galaxy mobile devices, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube image and video uploading, up to a 1/6,000th sec shutter speed and 8.6fps continuous shooting.
The Galaxy NX offers 3D photo/video recording when paired with the optional 45mm 2D/3D lens accessory.
