The Sony NEX-7 is probably the most expensive camera from Sony’s NEX mirrorless camera lineup. It features some pretty impressive hardware specs which produces some pretty amazing quality photos. Now if you were hoping for an update to the NEX-7, you might be in luck because according to a tip obtained by Sony Alpha Rumors, it seems that come April, Sony could be announcing the NEX-7’s successor, the NEX-7n. This is hot on the heels of Sony’s previous announcement which unveiled the A58 and NEX-3n.
The specs of course cannot be confirmed at the moment, but according to the tip, the NEX-7n will feature a 24MP camera with phase detection pixels on its sensor. This will be a new sensor and will not be the same one on the NEX-7. Apparently the internal circuitry has also been redesign and supposedly solves the overheating problem. I don’t own the NEX-7 so I can’t speak for its overheating, but if you’re a NEX-7 owner with said problem, looks like it might be solved in NEX-7n. That’s pretty much all the specs we have for now and we suggest you take it with a grain of salt, but check back with us at a later date for more details.
