The leak was revealed by Tinhte.vn who showed pictures of a mirrorless camera posed next to three NX lenses which can be used with the new camera which is set to be called the Galaxy NX.

Last week we revealed a new S4 Galaxy smartphone that comes with a 10x optical zoom lens with an f/3.1 aperture that attaches to a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor.

The new mirrorless camera is said to have an APS-C 20.3 MP sensor, Android 4.2, ISO up to 25,600 and 1080p video capture.

Last week, JP Morgan claimed Samsung faced "significant setbacks" with sales of its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone, causing shares in the company to drop by nearly 6.2 percent - a four-month low.

Samsung Chief Executive Officer Shin Jong-kyun "Samsung will shortly release our latest mirrorless camera that runs on Google's Android software," Shin told reporters in Seoul yesterday.

The company plans to introduce the Galaxy Camera 2 at an event in the UK this week, with June 20th tipped as the launch date.
