Galaxy S5 camera might not have optical image stabilization

Samsung logoPrior to its announcement, it was rumored that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3′s camera will tout optical image stabilization. OIS is a feature which, quite simply, reduces blurring when the camera is being used to take a photo or record a video. Samsung’s new phablet doesn’t come with OIS, unfortunately, though there a number of manufacturers who offer the feature in their flagship smartphones, manufacturers like HTC, LG and Nokia. At some point in time, Samsung is expected to catch up with its rivals, but a new report by Korean publication ET News suggests that might not happen with the Galaxy S5.

Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy S5 in January next year, presumably because Galaxy S4 has not met its internal sales projections. The smartphone is said to have an Exynos 6 64-bit processor with a whopping 4GB of RAM, but that’s not confirmed yet. The Galaxy S5 camera will presumably not have optical image stabilization because Samsung’s supply partners are unable to manufacture enough components to meet Samsung’s demand. Samsung sells millions of units of its flagship devices, so suppliers might have a hard time keeping up, if this report is to be believed. The company has previously been rumored to be interested in developing its own camera modules, a step which might become absolutely necessary to take if Samsung wants to bring OIS to its future devices without having to depend on independent suppliers.
