"Next-gen" Samsung NX10 gets official

We brought you news that this was due back in March last year, but can now confirm the official launch of the Samsung NX10, a Micro Four Thirds-rivalling hybrid DSLR.

The NX10 boasts a 14.6-megapixel sensor, a 3-inch AMOLED display, the claim of the fastest auto focus in its class and the ability to record H.264 720p HD movie footage.

Features include a built-in flash, manual controls, a Smart Auto function, Smart Range for capturing bright areas and dark areas in the same frame, and a Supersonic Dust Reduction system.

Due to be available in "Noble Black" and "Titan Silver" in spring 2010, the camera will be on show at CES, so we'll bring you more from the show floor.
