Samsung hasn't said much about its Android 4.2-powered Galaxy NX camera ever since the device first debuted back in June, but today that silence has been broken. Samsung this morning revealed that the Galaxy NX will launch both online and at authorized Samsung retailers in the U.S. this October. Pricing for the Jelly Bean camera will be set at $1,599.99 for the body-only or $1,699.99 for a bundle that includes an 18-55mm lens.
The Galaxy NX is an interchangeable lens camera that, like the original Galaxy Camera before it, runs Google's Android operating system. The camera itself touts a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, ISO of up to 25,600, 1/6000 sec shutter speed and a built-in pop-up flash. There's a 4.8-inch HD LCD display on the Galaxy NX's backside, and buried inside the unit is a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage (with microSD slot for additional space), Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity and a 4,360mAh battery.
