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:
