Samsung Plans to Improve Smartphone Cameras

Galaxy S4 Camera

With this year's release of the Nokia Lumia 1020, smartphone cameras are being seen as more integral than ever before, and Samsung has come up with a plan to help improve their own smartphone snappers.

Samsung will reportedly merge its smartphone division and camera division in an effort to improve their upcoming smartphone cameras and help them keep up with the likes of the Lumia 1020.

Samsung’s latest smartphone release, the Galaxy S4 features a 13 megapixel camera, which pales in comparison to the Lumia, which boasts a 41 megapixel snapper.

With cameras on mobile phones becoming more and more important to consumers, it appears that Samsung will certainly be picking up the slack in a concerted effort to improve its sales next year, after falling behind Apple in the latest sales report released this month.

The bad news for Samsung is that although this merger is set to take place in the very near future, it is unlikely to help improve any camera features already put into place for its upcoming Galaxy S5 release, unless Samsung wants to push its release date back, which is unlikely.

Either way, it’s a real possibility that we will be starting to see even sharper and more responsive cameras finding their way onto smartphones in the near future.
