The Samsung Galaxy NX is a hybrid mirrorless interchangeable lens camera manufactured by Samsung which was announced in June 2013. The Galaxy NX is an Android (4.2.2, upgradeable to Android Jelly Bean MR1) based mobile device which is the first of its kind. It is a 20.3 megapixel using the Samsung NX-mount as well as Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, and a GPS receiver by which the camera can make geotagged photographs.[1]

While the device is runs on Android it is not a smartphone in the sense that it doesn't have a telephone function. Instead its wireless connectivity can be used for telecommunication (including video) over the Internet.

Included software allows for in-camera organizing, editing and online sharing or storage of images and videos.[2] As with other Android devices, other software can be downloaded from Google Play.[3]

The device has a "familiar DSLR look", with no camera in the back. It has a larger LCD touchscreen than is customary for that category but fewer buttons/dials for controlling it. The screen or voice control is used more.[4]

The device has one processor for Android and another, DRIMe IV, for photographic processing.
