When Samsung announced the Galaxy NX back in June, the South Korean company didn't mention anything in the way of pricing. That said, just by looking at the spec sheet, we knew it wouldn't be cheap. How right we were, eh? Pocket-Lint reports that the device has gone on sale in the United Kingdom alongside a price tag that reads £1,299.
The Galaxy NX is a DSLR that runs on Android 4.2.2 and packs a 4.3 inch qHD (960 x 540 pixels) multi-touch screen, Samsung's own Exynos 5410 (the same octa-core ARM cortex A15 used in some models of the Galaxy S4), 2 GB of RAM, WiFi, HSPA+, and (on select models) support for 4G LTE. On the camera side of things, you're looking at a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, 25,600 ISO sensitivity, full HD 1080p video at 60fps, compatibility with standard NX lenses from Samsung (adapters available) and an 18 to 55 mm OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) lens with an aperture range of between 3.5 and 5.6 f-stop.
Jessops has the camera listed as 'in stock' and is offering next day delivery, but Pocket-Lint points out that elsewhere (such as Wex), the camera is only available for pre-order. With no official word from Samsung, it's not clear if the device has launched exclusively at Jessops and is bound for other retailers in the near future or if this is all a big mistake. Regardless, we now know how much the Galaxy NX is going to cost (even if we can't afford it), so that's something.
