South Korean manufacturer Samsung, the leader in the smartphone market, can join forces with Japan’s Olympus, famous for its optics and cameras, despite having recently sold its photographic department to the Japanese group JIP.

This hypothesis has been suggested in recent weeks based on leaks, market analysts and sources close to the industry and both companies. Now we have the first digital representations (renders) of a possible Samsung Galaxy S22.

In 2022 we can have a Galaxy S22 with Olympus cameras

As per the info I got, both Samsung and Olympus held talks about a possible partnership. The current status and extent of this partnership is not exactly clear. They could work on a special edition Fold or we could see this happen on ‘H3’ (S22 Ultra)

As reported by 4gnews on a previous occasion, Samsung and Olympus will have debated the idea, without the details of the talks being known. In other words, there may never be a partnership between both brands.

Even so, it was not long before the first renders of a possible Samsung Galaxy S22 with Olympus cameras. The work exposed here was carried out by the team of LetsGoDigital, a portal that has accustomed us to several similar illustrations.

We are dealing with conceptual representations of the product, without any basis in measurements or real products. It is, therefore, an exercise in artistic creativity based on the historical and current design philosophy adopted by the South Korean Samsung.

The best range of cameras will be present in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

We see here a familiar design, with similarities with the current Galaxy S21, but with a huge difference. At issue is the first and main camera on its back with Olympus optics and a new Samsung ISOCELL sensor.

In effect, the current 108 MP sensor present in the top smartphones will be updated with a new iteration. This Samsung sensor is expected to have up to 200 MP of resolution, in addition to larger dimensions, and may be up to 1 inch.

We can see these indications in the concept created by LetsGoDigital, as well as the Olympus brand name just below the gigantic main camera. It is a concept, but if this sensor is presented, it will be effectively large.

We are now waiting for the presentation of Samsung’s next generation of image sensors, renewing its ISOCELL range, while also waiting for more news regarding this possible partnership.

It should also be noted that such a sensor would be coveted by several manufacturers for use in their top-of-the-range smartphones. Among those interested will be Xiaomi which could incorporate this component in its top of the range for 2022, the Xiaomi Mi 12.

Looking back, Xiaomi revealed its Mi 11 on December 28, 2020 to be the first to incorporate several new features such as the Snapdragon 888. Thus, it is extremely likely that it will also be the first to adopt the sensor in question.

It remains for us now to wait for more information on the Samsung Galaxy S22 and the progress of negotiations with Olympus.

Huawei currently has a partnership with Leica, Nokia with Carl Zeiss and OnePlus with Hasselblad.
