One NX1 user posted this in a Korean forum.

He said that the firmware version is 1.4 and it has already been distributed to beta-users. He is expecting it will be released soon.

There is no detail about changes known so far. But he guesses it could be a major release.

I think they would have called it 1.33 if it was a minor update, so probably big one yea!

It is probably pretty heavily videocentric with a few additions for photos. Imagine if they gave it a h.264 codec option. It would create a surge in sales I'm sure LOL!

I hope it adds, at the very least:

1) real gamma log for video

2) crop 4k as an option

3) lossy raw as an option

4) lower selectable fps for continuous shooting

5) higher bitrate and better iq for 120fps video in fhd

I'd also hope to see higher fps for video (say 60fps in 4k and 240fps in fhd but I know it's very unlikely).

I'd love to see this too! Regardless, it's encouraging to see they are still so involved in the camera and helping users get what they have requested. I'm still at 1.30, and it has replaced my D3s, D800E an far more expensive video cameras. This camera really deserves more notice than it appears it has received. I don't know of anything else that approaches its quality and AF tracking - plus I use it in driving rain and in areas when not gets heavily doused with water.

I agree.

What they should really improve - if possible - is af in mid to low light. Most cheaper and humbler dslr can do better here.

Perhaps the fw 1.4 will bring new algorithms for this? Let's hope so. And I also hope to see a new fast prime (22-23mm f1.4) soon. Possibly stabilized and weather sealed.

I'm looking forward to more details. Though honestly I'd rather hear about a partnership with Sigma, or new lens being released. (Wishful thinking not a suggestion of something in the works) 
Maybe next month we will see some lens'

AF is also my only big issue with this camera!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for better focus peaking options such as to always have it activated. Also hoping the back button focus issue gets addressed

My small wish list...

I hope it adds, at the very least:

1) real gamma log for video

2) crop 4k as an option

3) lossy raw as an option

4) lower selectable fps for continuous shooting

5) higher bitrate and better iq for 120fps video in fhd

I'd also hope to see higher fps for video (say 60fps in 4k and 240fps in fhd but I know it's very unlikely).

+ Canon-like switch function between Single - Continuous focus.

+ Exposure-to-the-right metering. Instead of manually setting EV in whichever metering mode to achieve this behavior, why can't any brand directly offer one direct setting? (Of course it would be only useful for Raw shooters).

+ The ability to move dials/wheels while half-pressing Shutter button (so focus and exposure is "temporally" locked). Another feature present in DSLRs I sometime miss.

(And of course, AF improvements are always welcomed).

I've had it since it first came out and have updated every new firmware promptly, but... It really sucks it doesn't keep your prior settings! It shouldn't be that hard Samsung!

Not enough f1.4 lenses, not enough long (anything over 200mm) lenses, etc. 3 f1.4 lenses and one telephoto over 250mm would really help the NX system for pros.

Firmware 1.4 for NX1 and firmware 1.11 for NX500 have been officially "leaked" by Samsung with the release of firmware 1.13 for the Samsung 16-50mm f/2-2.8 S and Samsung 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ today.

The release notes say for both lenses:

[v1.13]
1) Improved AF to work during zooming (only for NX1, NX500)
* Updating the camera as NX1 v1.40, NX500 v1.11

There might be more firmware for lenses to be released... think of the 50-150...

The fact that the availability of different types is a minute fraction of those available with established DSLR marques springs to mind.

Edit: As far as I can see Sigma make far more lens for Canon than Samsung make for their own cameras. You could probably sort out your needs more easily with a Sigma lens than NX without even using Canon lenses. There is more commitment to lens production from third parties to DSLR than any of the mirrorless companies have to their own products which could explain why Sigma and Tamron steer clear of mirrorless to a large extent. The whole mirrorless business is spread so thin over so many mounts that it is difficult to see how they are going to get out of this rut.
