More and more affordable smartphones have features that were previously only typical of more expensive, high-end devices. The widespread rollout of premium hardware innovations is also characteristic of Samsung Galaxy A mobiles, among others. According to a recent report, it could receive even more flagship features in the future, thereby helping the manufacturer gain greater market share.
According to The Elec, Samsung is working to equip all Galaxy A series smartphones with optical image stabilization– a feature available in future models. This is not a small thing because optical image stabilization used to be mostly a feature of more expensive mobiles, mainly given to galaxy S and Galaxy Note models. The manufacturer’s ambition can also affect other companies, which will start the spread of this great technology in the world of cheaper smartphones.
Optical image stabilization would probably only be given to the primary sensor on the back of the phones. However, the quality can still improve much more than relying on the electronic stabilizer. If Samsung successfully integrates the technology, if not all of its Galaxy A-series devices, it could make huge changes for the entire industry.
By the way, there are already Galaxy A phones with OIS, but not too many yet, such as the different versions of the A52 and the A72.
In case there is anyone who does not know exactly what optical image stabilization means, we will tell you that it is a small mechanical solution that neutralizes the movement of the camera sensor with the help of tiny motors, which is caused by various external factors, most often the shaking of the hand. The design includes several sensors that monitor movements and try to counteract them accordingly so that the photos remain still and the videos even. Electronic image stabilization is also a cool thing, it is often used in addition to optical, but in cheaper devices, it is usually the only one available. Because it’s a software-based solution entirely, it’s generally less efficient and doesn’t provide the same consistent effect as dedicated hardware can.
