Better Cameras Coming To Samsung Budget Phone Line

Remember the A-Team? No, not the series, but the often mocked stepchild-line of phones and tablets from Samsung. There is nothing wrong with their A-line of phones, but they often don't get the same amount of attention as their revered and cutting edge S-line. What this means is that with the A-line, you "get what you pay for". Typically, that means the cameras aren't fancy, the processors are slower and it's usually a no-frills afair.

Say Cheese

That is until now however. According to a Korean publication called "The Elec", Samsung plans to bring Optical Image Stablization (OIS) to its entire A-line. Up until this point, this capability could only be found on its flagship phones. At this time of writing, the higher priced A phones do have this feature (A22, A52 and A72).

The Samsung A52, mid-ranged at $599 has OIS 


OIS allows for sharper and clearer photos by adjusting the lens accordingly when detecting movement. It is a de facto feature on professional DSLR cameras. The fact that Samsung's lowest cost offerings don't have this feature (among other things) is why competitors like Xiaomi have been able to beat them in this segment of the market.

There is a huge market for budget devices. Aesthetically, their A-line carries the same look as their higher priced offerings. As expected though, a lower price means sacrifices have to be made. Camera quality is a major factor these days in phone's marketability. The inclusion of this feature and some other quality upgrades may help Samsung to better position themselves in this segment.

At just $137 (Amazon), The Samsung A02 only contains DIS.


We can only hope however that an increase in feature set does not translate to an increase in cost. Do you own or like any of the A-series phones? Let us know in the comments below!
