Samsung and Olympus Cameras are Not Partnering on a Smartphone


Samsung has been repeatedly linked with Olympus cameras, now generally known as OM Digital, in what was purported to be a partnership in an upcoming smartphone. PetaPixel confirms this to be false.

The authentic rumor tying the 2 manufacturers collectively began in April when a rumor steered that Samsung was wanting so as to add sensor-shift stabilization into its subsequent Galaxy flagship smartphone. In it, the Olympus model was tied to Samsung via what seemed to be an identical digicam partnership to what Vivo has accomplished with Zeiss and OnePlus has accomplished with Hasselblad.

OM Digital had mentioned that it deliberate to collaborate with different firms that weren’t within the digicam and lens house at CP+ earlier in 2021, however as PetaPixel reported in April, there have been causes to right away doubt the authenticity of the rumored Samsung and Olympus model partnership.

On the time, Samsung was reportedly engaged on a brand new Exynos 2200 processor that was codenamed “Olympus,” which was may have been mistranslated to counsel that the 2 manufacturers had been working collectively.

Of notice, that processor is rumored to be essential to help a 200-megapixel sensor, which occurs to be the decision of Samsung’s new HP1 sensor that it introduced earlier this month and offered a deeper dive into this week.

The hope {that a} vastly improved digicam system led by OM Digital beneath the Olympus identify fueled continued hype, nonetheless, as two totally different renders had been produced by LetsGoDigital that confirmed what such a partnership would possibly seem like.

Sarcastically, it was LetsGoDigital that this week was advised that the rumored partnership was to not be. The publication lately confirmed that it had spoken to an OM Digital consultant who mentioned that there was no deliberate collaboration between the 2 manufacturers.

It ought to be famous that OM Digital can not converse for Olympus as the 2 firms are not affiliated. Nevertheless, it’s unlikely that Olympus can be the associate for Samsung and never OM Digital which controls all the client digicam and lens-related belongings.

This denial is of notice as only a few producers will ever select to touch upon initiatives which are in progress and even make statements with regard to rumors, so the robust assertion to each LetsGoDigital and PetaPixel ought to put the expectation of a Samsung and OM Digital partnership to mattress.
