Samsung NX-R Coming in March?

Samsung could be releasing a full frame mirrorless camera in March, possibly known as the NX-R, which appeared alongside the now-official NX300 in a Samsung leak back in October. However, there is no solid word on what the spec list of the rumored NX-R would contain.

Additional rumors point to a Samsung NX30 coming in the future as a replacement to the Samsung NX20.

After earlier rumors of Android-powered mirrorless cameras from Samsung, a couple of the rumored model numbers (the NX-R and NX300) showed up on Samsung’s website.

Samsung Adding Android OS to Mirrorless Cameras

Samsung NX Camera Android Rumors

Samsung dropped what looks to be a pretty exciting camera with its Galaxy Camera last month, which is a heavy duty Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-powered point and shoot.  In it, the camera is not just one of the features, it’s the whole point of the device – something that looks to become a serious trend.
