Samsung tipped to launch Tizen-powered NX500 camera

Samsung is currently working on a new camera dubbed ‘NX500’ that will be powered by Tizen OS, according to a new report.

Sammobile reckons Samsung is building the new device as a successor to the NX300M, also running on Tizen OS.

In fact, the NX300M was the first Samsung device to tout the in-house custom-built operating system.

Details are still thin on the ground right now, but the report says that the camera is likely to run with the same mirrorless setup we saw on the NX300M.

It’s also expected that we’ll see a boosted resolution count and better image quality with the sequel device.

The report didn’t offer any information on the specs of the device, but instead suggested that ‘the NX500 should be a great option for those looking to buy a digital camera.’

The NX300M was a generally well-received camera, so that bodes well for the newly tipped NX500.

According to the article, Samsung will release its latest snapping fare at the Consumer Electronics Tradeshow, due to take place early next month in Las Vegas.

At least that means we don’t have long to wait…
