Galaxy Camera 2 Launch Set for June 20 says Samsung CEO

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Camera 2 at its June 20 press conference in London, CEO Shin Jong-Kyun told reporters earlier today. The upcoming device is a successor to the company’s first smart-camera (pictured above), which was released in 2012 to mixed reviews.

We’ll get our first official look at the Galaxy Camera 2 on June 20 (though photos could leak in the next week), but Samsung couldn’t resist revealing one key spec for the new device.

“Samsung will release our latest mirrorless camera that runs on Google’s Android software,” Shin told the press according to Korea Times.

A mirrorless design will put the Galaxy Camera 2 somewhere between a heavier high-end DSLR and a basic point-and-shoot in both weight and photo quality. The technology might also mean that the device could come with multiple lenses that can be switched in by the user. However, Galaxy Camera specs are still entirely speculative for now, and we likely won’t know its screen-size or price until June 20.
