Android seems to be leaping from technology to technology as Samsung has announced that its interchangeable lens mirrorless camera, the Samsung Galaxy NX, will run on Android. This device is some serious hardware. It includes a 20.3-megapixel APS-C format sensor, a hybrid autofocus system, 3G/4G LTE and Wi-Fi technology for instant sharing.
This gives a whole new meaning to the idea of a smart camera.
On the outside, the Samsung Galaxy NX looks like any other digital camera on the market, but once you get past the exterior and into the inner workings of the camera, you start to see where Samsung and Android are really innovating. Not only does it run exactly like a smart phone, albeit without the ability to make calls, but it runs on Android Jelly Bean, and has a 1.6 GHz Pega-Q quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and sensors such as an accelerometer, geomagnetic, proximity and gyro.
