That’s because rumors say Samsung might be interested in buying Corephotonics, an Israeli company that was actually responsible for helping OPPO develop its 5x unlearned zoom module. Apparently, this acquisition will allow Samsung to increase the portfolio and features that their phones offer.
Currently, the latest Corephotonics product is a 25x zoom camera, which is actually very innovative.
It is not known when Samsung plans to close this deal or if both companies are currently in talks since nothing official has yet been said, so it is probably better that the news deals with a dozen suspicions right now.
While Samsung phones have been known to shoot good quality photographs, other companies like Google and Huawei have managed to catch up in very important ways, so Samsung’s decision to back up their camera efforts has sense.
