Well, it looks like the Samsung + Olympus rumour from back in April might actually turn out to be true. I still think it’s an odd pairing, but GSMArena reports that not only is the Samsung Galaxy S22 is reported to not feature a new version of the 108-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HM3 sensor, but it’ll have a new 200-megapixel Olympus branded camera module.
The news appears to come from Korean website Pulse News, citing “multiple industry sources”. So, I’d still treat this one as a rumour for now, but it’ll be quite interesting if it does happen. Olympus has never touched smartphones in the past, but perhaps this is one of the new directions the company is taking since its acquisition by JIP.
