Samsung Smartphones Will Not Get Optical Image Stabilization Function Soon

Samsung Electronics has reportedly pushed back plans to add the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) function to its smartphones.

According to etnews.com, the Wireless Business Division of Samsung Electronics is considering putting off the plan to apply the OIS function to smartphone from April 2014 to sometime after June 2014.

The report said that the Korean company was facing an unstable supply for the OIS AF actuator for its smartphone cameras. Samsung tried to implement the OIS function in the Galaxy Note 3, but postponed it to after the release of the Galaxy S5, the report added.

Samsung's competitors including Nokia / Microsoft and LG Electronics have already adopted the OIS function for their Lumia 925 and G2 smartphones, respectively.

Adopting the OIS function would also make Samsung's slim smartphones more bulky, as the OIS is implemented by mounting a dedicated system semiconductor on the AF actuator, making it difficult to make the camera module thin.

Samsung is focusing on increasing the number of pixels of its samartphone amera module. The company will adopt the 16-mega pixel camera module to the 25% of its smartphones that will hit the market next year.
