Samsung unveiled several new products at an event on Thursday, including the new Galaxy NX camera and the Ativ Q, a portable laptop/tablet duo that can switch seamlessly between Windows 8 and Android.

‚ÄčThe electronics company also announced several new updates to its flagship Galaxy S smartphone line, including mini, active and zoom versions. 

‚ÄčThe Galaxy S4 active promises users up to 30 minutes of protection underwater, while the zoom is the first smartphone with a 10x optical zoom function.

The Active Q is perhaps the most exciting addition to the Samsung family, sporting a 13.3-inch display with 3,200 × 1,800 pixel resolution. The Tab3 is another Ativ product that includes a free, full version of Microsoft Office 2013.
