Samsung invests in Israeli dual-camera manufacturing company
Samsung takes camera tech very seriously. As per a new Korean report, Samsung has invested in a firm called Core Photonics. Based in Israel, this company is known for its dual-camera modules. This, however, does not indicate that the company is going to launch a new dual-camera smartphone anytime soon, especially since it’s common knowledge that the Galaxy S8 will use a single lens camera.
However, with the rest of the year still pretty wide open for the company, we could see multiple devices equipped with this particular camera module. Samsung makes several investments in key sectors that could prove to be beneficial in the future.
So this particular investment does not necessarily indicate that the results will be visible right away. Perhaps we could see a dual camera module on the Galaxy Note 8, or the fold-out display handset that is expected to launch by Q3 2017. It is said that the likes of Apple, Foxconn, MediaTek and Samsung have collectively invested a total of $15 million in Core Photonics recently.
