Samsung to Unveil New “Mirrorless” Galaxy Camera 2 on June 20? (Updated)

Update:  The first pictures of the device have leaked. It’s called the Galaxy NX, and looks be to everything we imagined.

According to a report out of the Korea Times, Samsung boss JK Shin told reporters that they are going to release a “sequel to the Galaxy Camera” on June 20 at their London Premiere event. This sequel will be the company’s “latest mirrorless camera that runs on Google’s Android software.” That’s a pretty interesting idea, right there. 

The previous Galaxy Camera was nothing more than an average point-and-shoot that happened to run a full-blown version of Android. The idea was something we were highly interested in, the camera just couldn’t deliver like we had hoped. But if we’re talking mirrorless for the next iteration, are we also talking interchangeable lenses? Are we talking a legitimate camera on the same level as Samsung’s current NX line? A lot of questions that this quote doesn’t necessarily answer.

We’re also dealing with a translation here, so until we see the product, we aren’t sure that we should all get hopes too high here. But, should Samsung launch a new NX camera, powered by Android, are you game?

    Okay, so this is different from the Galaxy S4 Zoom? So Apple’s thing is a few products that can do some of the same stuff, but there are distinct uses and apparently Samsung is going for the redundancy approach. Flood the market with as many products to see which is the best form factor?

      That’s why they are projected to lose 12 billion in sales due to over saturating the market. Sometimes less is more 🙂

    May be true either way. Technically point and shoots are mirror less. But if you mention the nx. So that would make sense too. The Sony nex series is the best hybrid system out their latest releases have built in app support for remote shutter and WiFi upload/sharing among other features. It woikd not surprise me to see Samsung use its android experience to one up Sony.

    • I’m eager to try out the Samsung Galaxy dashboard that comes OEM installed in my next car. I’m talking to you, car manufacturers! Can we get some android integration with mainstream vehicles already?? I mean, Ford Sync is “awesome” and all (cough cough, cricket cricket), but why not just have a capacitive touch dashboard powered by android??? I **want** this in my next vehicle. Like, really.

    Another Samsung camera? A bit overkill, no?
