Samsung‘s mid-range Galaxy A smartphones should offer a camera upgrade in 2022. According to a report from South Korea, the company is likely to roll out optical image stabilization (OIS) for all Galaxy A series models next year.
The source indicates that the successors of the Galaxy A22 5G, Galaxy A32 and Galaxy A42 will receive 64-megapixel sensors as the main ones and will not be inferior in shooting quality to the current Galaxy A52, Galaxy A72 and OnePlus Nord 2. The optical stabilizer will become one of the new products’ marketing features, which will give an edge over competitors.
Optical Image Stabilization is a technology that can compensate for camera movements due to handshake to prevent image blur. At the moment, the presence of OIS is a sign that the smartphone has received a serious camera.
This feature is especially useful for those who often shoot videos or have their own video blog. But do not forget that the installation of an optical stub will lead to an increase in the cost of a smartphone. Therefore, users will have to decide for themselves whether to agree to pay more for a smartphone with a better camera.
Whether the 2022 Galaxy-A series models will receive optical image stabilization will not be known until the first quarter of next year. At the moment, this is only a rumor in need of confirmation.
Samsung launches 50MP ISOCELL GN5 sensor with Dual Pixel Pro technology
Samsung Electronics, in addition to the ISOCELL HP1 image sensor, introduced the ISOCELL GN5 sensor, which allows you to form photos with a resolution of up to 50 megapixels.
The announced product is the world’s first 1-micrometer pixel sensor featuring Dual Pixel Pro technology. Using two photodiodes per pixel, this system provides ultra-fast autofocusing. As a result, high-quality shooting is possible even in difficult conditions such as low light levels or fast-moving objects. This solution also allows for “omnidirectional” focusing by dividing pixels not only vertically; as it is present in the Dual Pixel system, but also diagonally.
The new sensor has received Front Deep Trench Isolation (FDTI) technology; which ensures the absorption of the maximum amount of light information. In addition, cross-talk within pixels is reduced.
Trial shipments of the ISOCELL GN5 sensor have already begun. Probably the first smartphones equipped with a camera based on it will appear in the coming months. According to some reports, several models of the Samsung Galaxy A 2022 series will be based on this new sensor.
