Samsung-Galaxy-NXNot sure if you got the memo, but Samsung is trying to take over the world. Well, you know, not the world per se, but the world of technology in its entirety. The Koreans are already dominating the smartphone market, they’re pretty big in the PC universe as well, so the next target is become number one in the digital camera décor.

Only Sammy doesn’t want to just snatch that crown, instead they’ll do it on their own terms and revolutionize the market their way. How? Well, a first step might be the Galaxy NX. This looks like nothing you’ve seen before; being a state-of-the-art DSLR (digital single-lens reflex camera), sporting interchangeable lenses, but also running on Android.

Talk about bringing together the best of both worlds, huh? Though the NX can be viewed as a successor to last year’s Galaxy Camera, it’s more like a ten-year leap forward in time. True, it’s massive and most of you might find it ugly, but damn, is it powerful.

The 20.3 MP APS-S sensor is probably the most impressive feature, but the large 4.8-inch 720p display, quad-core 1.6 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, 4G LTE and 4,360 mAh battery are big points of interest as well. Unlike the GS4 Zoom, the Galaxy NX doesn’t come with GSM voice support, but hey, it’s not like anyone would buy this for making phone calls anyway.

While there are no words on pricing, I urge you to be careful with your level of expectations, since there’s no way anyone will ever be able to use the words “Galaxy NX” and “affordable” in the same sentence.  You know, besides me just now.
