If they had the proper library of apps ready...

The Samsung Galaxy NX is going to have a suggested retail price of $1,599, which just might be more expensive than the "pro-level" Olympus E-M1 or the Panasonic GX7.

Interesting concept, total failure to price it correctly. No pro will buy it, no enthusiast with large stores of lenses, and for occasional buyer it is $1000 too high.

the Galaxy NX could have been interesting. But if they aren't going to develop those software then they would need third-party developers to do it, and I just don't see many would until there is enough NX's in the market...

i.e. Galaxy NX needs third-party apps in order to sell well, third-party app developers need many NX's to be sold to develop those apps... Chicken and Egg problem.

And then there is the price...it's probably $600 too high...they should have started out smaller and tried selling cheaper, less featured models to get the market share first. Course, the problem with Samsung is more about brand recognition than anything else so they could be getting desperate right now...
