Rumors about Samsung 25x optical zoom Galaxy phone might come true as the company plans to acquire Corephotonics



Smartphone cameras have become favorites for many people as it gets better with the introduction of new technologies and upgrades. It is therefore not shocking the camera market has greatly decreased with unstable sales in recent times. However, smartphone cameras lack one crucial feature that is usually found in cameras which is the optical zoom.

As taking technology advances, 2019 could see smartphones have such modification as reports show that Samsung has almost finalized talks with the Israeli company, Corephotonics to buy the company this year. Corephotonics is a company that specializes in optical designs and news buzzing around indicates that there might be a 25x optical zoom in the pipeline.

Looking back to 2012’s Galaxy Camera, trailed by the 2014 continuation, neither of which appeared well and made sense – yet it’s in the Samsung’s Galaxy phones that the company has genuinely begun to succeed. For instance, Galaxy S9 plus has an excellent camera unit. Admittedly, the company has a long history with cameras and phones, together with different attempts to merge the two into one.

Phone companies normally digitalize zoom in their phones which is in the form of just cropping into the image to provide a zoom impression. But then, the digitalized zoom is limited with how it works as it is quite impossible to resolve distant detail without an optical resolution. Some companies have tried in a small way to solve this issues example is the 3x zoom in the Huawei P20 Pro, which is currently seen as the best solution.

It appears a lot more is yet to come. Recently, Oppo mentioned that they are working on a 5x optical zoom module, with a 10x zoom projected after. One uncertain thing is whether Oppo is getting these optical designs from Corephotonics or not. Nevertheless, if Samsung which is one of the largest and most respected phone brands in the world, can step ahead of Oppo with a 25x optical zoom module then that would make the headlines and set the company top of its competitors. Also, Samsung can use that feature to beat the camera market in general.

We all await the outcomes of the deal and its possibility regarding what it really for your future handset as there have been no verifications on the reports yet. In any case, it will be so great to see a 25x optical zoom for the next Galaxy phone.
