Recently, Samsung Electro-Mechanics – a subsidiary of Samsung Group – announced that they have successfully developed the ultra-thin 5x optical zoom camera module. Not only launched, but the company is also ready to put new camera modules into mass production.
Theoretically, a 5x optical zoom camera module will take up more space than 2x zoom modules on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 +. However, Samsung’s new 5x optical zoom camera module has a thickness of only 5mm, which is thinner than the 6mm of the zoom module 2x.
According to what was announced, Samsung used periscope systems to refract the light at the right angle and the sensor system, as well as the lens, arranged horizontally. As a result, Samsung created a thinner camera module but has twice the focal length of the 2x zoom module.
Huawei and Oppo have also used periscope system solutions to increase the zoom capability of the camera on their smartphones. Recently, Samsung also acquired Corephotonics, which cooperates with Oppo to develop optical zoom lenses. This explains why Samsung can quickly put a new 5x optical zoom module into mass production.
It is likely that Samsung will sell its new camera module to other companies in the near future. Furthermore, the Korean giant’s upcoming Galaxy Note 10 may also be equipped with this new camera module.
