Samsung makes some of the most sought after mobile devices on the market, however its camera offerings have not been completely at par with its rivals. A number of devices released this year came with optical image stabilization, whereas no Samsung device offered OIS despite countless rumors. Apart from that, the camera modules in its devices have received glowing reviews. One might expect Samsung’s camera offerings to get better over time, because if one is to believe reports coming in from Korea, the company has integrated its wireless and camera divisions.
What this means that Samsung’s camera division and its phone making division will now work directly with each other, so they’ll be able to work better as both divisions will be able to fully cooperate with each other. A Samsung official has been quoted in a local media report as saying that the “brand, sales, networks, software competency and manufacturing competitiveness of the wireless business division” will be integrated with the technical prowess of the camera division, which would result in competency for differentiating the company’s smartphones. Even if Samsung really has integrated these two divisions, and if the local media reports are true, then we’re likely to see improvements in the future. However, given the scale of an integration like this, its unlikely that any major results can be achieved in the very near future. So its likely that the Galaxy S5 might not have optical image stabilization after all.
