Smartphone market saturation has created a high-competition environment in which cameras play a central role in maintaining the CCM industry’s momentum. Driven by the proliferation of cameras per mobile handsets; the global camera module industry reached $31.3B in 2019, and should attain $57.0B in 2025, according to Yole Developpement.

The present state-of-the-art of CMOS technology provides better resolution and smaller pixels, low power consumption and cost improvements. Samsung is a major player among CIS manufacturers and high-end smartphone suppliers. In recent years, we observed that Samsung has rolled-out multi-camera smartphones. Its technical choices are not always linear, showing Samsung is not afraid to innovate and test different solutions to enhance photography.

System Plus Consulting has produced a report completely dedicated to Samsung’s technical choices.
