According to the report, Samsung may partner with Olympus to produce camera modules for the next generation of Galaxy smartphones. Although there is no confirmation from any development company, it is claimed that the cameras manufactured by the Japanese company can debut either in a special edition Galaxy Fold or in the flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra. Olympus is said to have approached the South Korean technology giant to offer branding as well as experience in key areas of photography and videography. It is said that the talks are in a new stage.
Tipster Yogesh tweet that Samsung may be the next brand to get on the wagon to partner with a well-known camera brand for its smartphones. Later, a report from Tom’s Guide claims that the tipsters FrontTron and Ice Universe confirm this Samsung and Olympus could work together for future smartphone camera technology. This partnership could allow Samsung to improve the camera quality of its smartphones. Due to the lack of official confirmation, this information should be taken with a pinch of salt.
The smartphone market has already seen that various companies are working with camera manufacturers to improve the photography of their smartphones. Huawei is a long – term partner with Leica, and Nokia used Carl Zeiss optics with its leading models. Chinese brand Vivo offers Zeiss optics in its recently released X series smartphones and OnePlus is the newest market player that is supply OnePlus 9 series with optics from the iconic Hasselblad camera brand.
It should be noted that Samsung, along with Sony, is among the best manufacturers of smartphone camera sensors. Olympus, known for its high-quality products, can help the South Korean company gain an edge in the camera department. Samsung has already done so to acquire US-based audio maker Harman, the parent company of brands such as JBL, Lexicon, AKG and Mark Levinson. Samsung’s flagship smartphones come complete with AKG headphones in the box.
