Samsung boss, Shin Jong-Kyun, was happy enough to inform the Korea Times that his company would have a mirrorless camera powered by Android in the near-future. And according to reports, this is will it will look like after leaked press shots were published by a Vietnamese tech site, followed by Engadget, of what is being purported to be the up-coming Samsung Galaxy NX camera.
Sammobile believes we’ll possibly be able to tell the new models from the original Galaxy camera based on what looks to be a new model naming method, with the original called the EK-GC100 and the new model the EK-GN120.
Our question yesterday at the original news was whether Samsung would be interested in supplying interchangeable lenses. So far from the leaked shots hitting the web, it definitely looks like the Korean giant is definitely interested with so far, three lenses on show.
Those three lenses include a basic 18-55mm with a 58mm diameter, F3.5 to 5.6 aperture and optical image stabilisation (OIS). The next is an 18-200mm zoom with OIS.
The third appears to be one of Samsung’s fast 85mm SSA F1.4 lenses – these lens types are wide angle and often used for low-light and portrait shots.
However, these lenses are already available so we assume that as they’re compatible across the NX platform already, they will also work with the Galaxy NX.
While it’s all speculation this side of June 20, one thing is certain – if it comes to pass, Android photography will never be as boring again.
