SAMSUNG SSC-420N.  There have some reports of a 420N model shown by Samsung at technical shows, but no innformation or photo is available.  It may have just been a mockup of a camera that was never produced.  This was quite frequent in the early days of digital photography as companies often wanted to indicate that they were very competitive in that market and that they had many future products under developement , when in fact it was mostly wishful thinking.
