Samsung: South Korean manufacturer Samsung and the traditional Japanese brand Olympus may soon form an alliance. According to information from industry leak specialists, the duo would be interested in collaborations in the field of photography.
According to the Twitter profile known as Yogesh, the two companies came to discuss the matter, but details of the negotiations are still being kept secret – the process may not even go ahead.
However, there is already speculation about what kind of collaboration could arise. The main theory is that both can work on a new and improved foldable smartphone from the Galaxy Fold line or on improving the cameras of the future Galaxy S22 family of mobile phones. So far neither side has confirmed or denied the rumor.
It’s worth remembering that photo companies such as Hasselblad, Zeiss and Leica, for example, have already partnered with other brands of mobile devices to collaborate or provide lens technology and other tools.
Samsung also has industry experience: it is one of the biggest names in the sensor industry, especially with ISOCELL models. Olympus, despite tradition, had to sell its camera division in 2020 as part of a restructuring.
