Galaxy A23 50MP OIS camera isn’t designed or manufactured by Samsung


Last updated: January 20th, 2022 at 15:42 UTC+02:00

One of Samsung’s low-cost phones of 2022 should get announced as the Galaxy A23. As the name implies, it will be a sequel to the Galaxy A22, and word on the street is that Samsung might want to release it in the second half of the year.

A couple of months ago, we heard that the Galaxy A23 should feature a 50MP primary camera. Nothing’s changed in the meantime, but according to a new report, the phone’s camera system — including said 50MP sensor — is designed and manufactured by a partner company rather than Samsung’s camera division.

Sunny Optical and Patron make Galaxy A23 camera possible

The Galaxy A23’s 50MP main camera is reportedly manufactured by Sunny Optical and Patron. Exact specifications remain unknown, but the module reportedly has optical image stabilization (OIS), which is a critical component for high-quality images in different lighting conditions.

According to a report by The Elec, the 4G and 5G Galaxy A23 will have identical camera systems, except the 50MP module will be manufactured by Sunny Optical for the 5G variant and by Patron for the 4G model.

Along with the 50MP primary sensor, the phone should also be equipped with a 5MP ultra-wide shooter, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor.

The report goes on to mention that Samsung expects to ship 17.1 million Galaxy A23 4G models and 12.6 million 5G variants this year. The company could start shipping the 4G model before the end of Q1, while the 5G variant is said to be planned for release in the second half of 2022.
