Samsung is reportedly working on a sensor-shift stabilization technology to offer better photo quality and improved stabilization for images.
Recent reports also suggests that Samsung might partner with camera giant Olympus for its future smartphones, reports GizmoChina.
Apple brought this technology for the first time on its iPhone devices with the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The company brought this as sensor-shift optical image stabilization.
Larger than a typical camera sensor, the primary 12MP wide sensor on the iPhone 12 Pro Max will move along the axis with the help of magnets placed in the corners.
Apple said that this tech is capable of making the 7P lens handle the light better, improve ISO sensitivity to about 87 percent, and improve stabilization.
The technology would theoretically allow Samsung to ditch lens stabilization methods, leading to simple, cheaper lens designs, according to Android Authority.
The company may need more space around the sensor to implement the technology, especially if it chooses to include it on its larger primary camera sensors, the report said.
Rumors say that Samsung’s foldable devices, which are usually marketed with different USPs, could get the tech in a Galaxy Z Fold3 Special Edition version.
