RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. -- August 29, 2013

Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator
in consumer electronics, today announced pricing for the GALAXY NX SMART
camera; the first connected Compact System Camera (CSC). The GALAXY NX will be
available $1,599.99 (body-only) or $1,699.99 (bundled with an 18-55mm lens)
and will be available in U.S. stores in October, just in time for the holiday
shopping season. Adaptable and simple to use, the GALAXY NX combines cutting
edge optical performance with connectivity capabilities and a variety of
applications based on the Android eco-system, all in one stylish package.

“Photographers today live mobile lifestyles and they demand tools that allow
them to share their work – in stunning detail – instantly,” said Ron Gazzola,
Vice President of Marketing for Digital Imaging. “The GALAXY NX camera
represents the pinnacle of technology convergence in our 2013 SMART camera
line, successfully marrying the benefits of our GALAXY Camera with the imaging
prowess of the award-winning NX interchangeable lens SMART cameras.”

Android Integration

Powered by the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, the GALAXY NX offers a
professional-level photographic experience with the simplicity and familiarity
of a smartphone. Users can choose from a variety of Android apps to help
personalize their GALAXY NX and do more than just shoot amazing photographs
and video - from editing images to adding special effects to staying in touch
with friends and family.

Professional Image Quality

The GALAXY NX’s 20.3MP APS-C Sensor produces images that are bright and
detailed, even in low light conditions, while the DRIMe IV Image Signal
Processor delivers the speed and accuracy today's photographers demand. Its
Advanced Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) System ensures accurate phase and contrast
detection for crisp, vibrant shots, while the 1/6000 sec shutter speed and
8.6fps shooting lets users capture the action as it happens.

The flexibility offered by the GALAXY NX’s selection of Interchangeable Lenses
places creative control firmly in the hands of the photographer, opening up a
world of imaging possibilities, whatever the scenario. From compact pancake
lenses and an ultra-wide fisheye, to exquisite longer prime and zoom lenses,
the extensive optics portfolio helps users create images that are truly
special.

Smarter SMART Features

The GALAXY NX is teeming with options to capture life’s memorable moments.
Photo Suggest provides location-based recommendations of popular photography
spots, sourced from a huge library of images taken by fellow photographers
across the world. Story Album lets users relive memories by displaying special
moments on one timeline, reframing and resizing them to create digital photo
books that can be viewed and shared on other devices.

The GALAXY NX boasts more than 30 Smart Modes, allowing  users to select the
optimum settings for almost any scenario, as well as create fresh, artistic
images. ‘Multi Exposure’ merges two different shots together to produce one
distinctive image, while ‘Animated Photo’ connects continuous shots of up to
five seconds, creating a moving GIF file. For added realism, ‘Sound & Shot’
stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken, so moments are
captured exactly as they happened.

For added personalization, Camera Studio allows users to easily customize
settings with their most frequently used applications or camera modes, making
sure their photos are captured exactly as desired every time.

Pricing & Availability

The GALAXY NX will be available at www.samsung.com and authorized Samsung
retailers in October for $1,599.99 (body-only) or $1,699.99 (bundled with an
18-55mm lens). For more information on the Wi-Fi version of the Samsung GALAXY
