While most people are still looking for how to lay their hands on the Galaxy S20, rumours about its successor us already coming up. The Samsung Galaxy S21 is expected to see the light of the day in the first quarter of 2021. Of course, we have to wait for a very long time, we already know that the next new product can get one long-awaited feature. We are talking about optical stabilization (OIS) for the front camera.
Samsung Galaxy S21 May Have Optical Stabilization For Front Camera
According to rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S21 will have a much improved front camera. It will use a larger sensor and optical image stabilization. The report suggested that the South Korean firm is testing two prototypes of the future phone. The first one has a 1/2 inch sensor (probably with a resolution of 48 MP). In addition to another with a 1/2.55 inch sensor (possibly with a 12-megapixel resolution) with optical stabilizer.
It would be great if the Korean giant bring on OIS for the front camera, as it offers a smoother image without jitter even in low light conditions. No matter what Samsung chooses, it will be the first phone from the company to use such a large sensor for a selfie camera.
The Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus use a 1/3.2-inch 10-megapixel selfie camera (Sony IMX375) with Dual Pixel autofocus. The Galaxy S20 Ultra uses a 1/2.65-inch 40-megapixel (ISOCELL S5KGH1) Super PD autofocus sensor. All phones in this series can also record video up to 4K at 60 fps using the front lens. The company first introduced an autofocus selfie camera with the Galaxy S8. Later in the Galaxy S10 series, a selfie camera with an improved PDAF Dual Pixel mechanism appeared.
If Samsung successfully integrates a selfie camera with an optical stabilizer under the Galaxy S21 display, this can significantly improve the look of the phone, as well as the image quality. We will wait to see the upcoming leaks.
