Samsung is planning to apply a 108MP camera for the first time on its mid-tier Galaxy A series next year.

The South Korean conglomerate is planning to have the 2022-model Galaxy A73 have a 108MP camera.

The camera will also have optical image stabilization (OIS) capability.

Galaxy A72, which launched during the first half of 2021, had a 64MP camera with OIS.

In total, A72 had a quad-camera setup on its back __ the 64MP main shooter, 12MP ultra-wide, 8MP telephoto and 5MP macro camera. It has a 32MP front shooter.

Samsung first applied a 108MP camera on the Galaxy S20 Ultra that was launched last year.

It has applied the high spec camera since then to the flagship S and Note series.

Galaxy S21 Ultra that launched earlier this year also sported a 108MP camera; Galaxy S22 Ultra will also have the camera.

Meanwhile, Samsung will likely procure the 108MP camera module for the Galaxy A73 series either from Mcnex and Samsung Electro-Mechanics.

Mcnex has OIS technology and in its recent financial report said it was developing high-resolution, ultra-small camera modules ranging from 48MP, 64MP and 108MP in spec.

Samsung previously mostly procured 108MP cameras from Samsung Electro-Mechanics, but it is now trying to control its cost better.

Partron is also developing a 108MP camera module. The company doesn’t have its own OIS technology but uses those of one of its own suppliers.

Samsung is beefing up its mid-tier smartphone line to better compete with rivals such as Xiaomi.

Apple is also planning to offer an iPhone SE 5G model during the first half of 2022 __ the iPhone maker had been offering the model at very competitive prices.

Samsung needs to recover its unit sales of the Galaxy A series, which suffered this year from the shortage of application processors.

It is also planning to expand applying OIS throughout the models in the Galaxy A series.

Samsung suppliers are also developing their OIS technologies or securing them supply more modules to the tech giant.
