The next Samsung mirrorless camera will run on Android

Samsung CEO JK Shin confirmed to Korea Times that their next mirrorless camera will run on the Android OS. The company will also introduce a new Galaxy camera on June 20th:

Shin also confirmed a plan to release a sequel of the Galaxy Camera — the Galaxy Camera2 — at an event in London set for June 20.

“Samsung will release our latest mirrorless camera that runs on Google’s Android software,” he told reporters.

Samsung is investing heavily in mirrorless cameras as it thinks increased corporate awareness and undisputable leverage in manufacturing will help it get a bigger stake in the lucrative and promising market.

This should not be a surprise to PhotoRumors readers and it's the next logical step after Samsung released their first Android based camera.

This week Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 zoom camera/phone:

    Are we probably talking about the NX30 or something not yet in the NX line up?

    No wonder their sales are so underwhelming if they keep on doing dumb moves like that.

    good luck with that :) just can’t think of any reason why I would want something like that

    A lot of people have been, in fact, asking for this. They are a (the?) dominant player in the Android world, so I trust they will do a decent job. We’ll see if this is what the market really needs.

    The potential for total customizability is appealing, but I’m not sure if I want to get into programming again. :-) Their lens line-up could also use some beefing up.

    this might be the best thing ever, and will probably become a huge hit in the mirrorless world.

    So what does this mean other than that Samsung cameras are now being turned into better social networking tools? There are already way too many pictures of people doing nothing out there.
