The Galaxy NX camera is one of the premier cameras made by Samsung, and it is endorsed as a professional DSLR camera. Samsung however refrained from mentioning anything about the price during its launch earlier in June. But the company has now formally announced the pricing for the camera in the U.S. and we’re left looking at our wallets.

Samsung will begin selling the camera from October for a whopping $1,599 (body only) or $1,699 if you choose to get a bundled variant which comes with an 18-55mm kit lens. That puts it in the super expensive territory, which means it’s not meant for your casual Instagram or Facebook uploads. The trendy bit about the camera though is that it features a decent 4.8 inch 720p touchscreen below the SVGA 800×600 electronic viewfinder, with a 1.6 GHz quad core Exynos chipset and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz. The camera also has LTE, 3G and Wi-Fi built in to share images on the go.

Speaking of the camera itself, the Galaxy NX packs a 20.3MP APS-C sensor which is good enough for professional grade photography. Samsung will also sell a bunch of lenses separately as you can see from the image above.
