We heard some hard to believe specs about the upcoming Samsung NX1 in the recent past. Today, we have some updated specs for you, as well as a teaser image that indicates that the new NX1 will be revealed at Photokina on September 15th.


According to a post over on Mirrorless Rumors, they have “confirmed” that the NX1 will feature the ability to shoot 15fps with tracking, have a vertical grip option, and be slightly bigger than the current NX30. Check out the full list of rumored specs below…

Samsung NX1 Rumored Specs

  • 28MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • 154 Cross-type AF Sensors
  • An Advanced Hybrid AF w/ 2nd Generation Phase Detection
  • ISO 100-51200
  • 4K Video at 30p/24p
  • Full 1080 HD at 60fps
  • 3″ Tiltable Rear LCD
  • Water and Dust Proof
  • Magnesium Alloy, Weather Sealed Body
  • Wifi and NFC

According to the report, the NX1 will likely be available some time in October. I have to tell you, I am still very skeptical of these specs, but if they are legit, and Samsung can release some new pro level glass (or stellar lens adapters, making Canon/Nikon glass work natively on the NX1), then this looks like an amazing camera.

I am really curious how it will match up to the upcoming Canon 7D replacement and Nikon D9300 (or whatever their flagship APS-C will be called). I can tell you right off the bat that I don’t see either that Canon or Nikon hitting 15FPS or ~30 megapixels, so that right there is enough to catch my attention.


What are your thoughts on these updated Samsung NX1 rumors? Do you think that the NX1 has a shot of outshining whatever Canon and Nikon put out in the APS-C market? Leave a comment below!
