The high-end specifications in flagship smartphones seem to have reached a saturation point, and now the company is focusing on the user experience. But one aspect that takes priority for many manufactures is to offer the best camera experience.
Many smartphone makers are now collaborating with camera and lens manufacturers to optimize their flagship devices’ photo-taking experience. Brands like Nokia and Huawei have been doing this for a while, but more companies are now taking this route. OnePlus recently followed suit by forming a partnership with Hasselblad for the OnePlus 9 series.
South Korean giant Samsung is also rumored to partner with Japan-based Olympus for its Galaxy smartphones lineup as the company aims to improve the photography experience. It is speculated that the Galaxy S22’s camera module could be from Olympus.
LetsGoDigital has revealed concept renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 flagship smartphone, created by Technizo Concept. Notably, the renders are based on the rumors that Olympus and Samsung are partnering for camera performance and these are just the concept renders, meaning the actual design could differ from this.
It shows a larger 200-megapixel primary camera sensor on a rectangular module placed in the top-left corner. There are a few other sensors that sit below the primary sensor. The larger lens could drastically improve the photo quality as it can capture more light. Recently, Samsung had also teased that it is developing a 200-megapixel image sensor as the successor of the 108-megapixel sensor found in the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
It is believed that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, the company’s upcoming foldable smartphone slated to launch in July or August this year, could be the first device to feature a camera module designed under the partnership of Samsung and Olympus.
While rumors and reports about this partnership with Samsung and Olympus keep surfacing online, both the company are yet to confirm this. We speculate that the company could announce this at the upcoming ‘Galaxy Unpacked’ event scheduled on 28th April.
