According to a report, next year’s Galaxy A phones will all feature OIS. It looks like Samsung is getting more serious about its affordable segment. Optical image stabilization is a mechanical stabilization that detects the camera’s movement and adjusts the lens’ position using motors, resulting in a steadier image on both photos and videos.
The news about Samsung implementing the camera technology to cheaper devices isn’t so surprising. The Korean giant recently released its Galaxy A22 phone, which features OIS, even though it is a budget-friendly model.
The Galaxy A series needs to stay competitive
Samsung’s Galaxy A series accounts for most of the company’s sales. With reports that Samsung is struggling to sell its premium Galaxy S devices, it is logical for the company to look for ways to make its affordable phones more competitive.
OIS is still uncommon among phones under $500. With Samsung’s 2022 Galaxy A lineup featuring the technology, the company might increase its sales in the affordable sector even more by focusing on upgraded camera features instead of just device performance.
