Samsung merges its digital imaging and mobile communications divisions

December 13 , 2013 by: Daniela Bowker Newsflash!

Almost all mobile phones now have cameras, barring the very lowest on the scale; some cameras run apps, making them more like smartphones or baby-computers; and plenty of cameras come with wi-fi and NFC capability now. Digital imaging and mobile communications technology are on a steady path of convergence. Samsung has brought this amalgam a step closer by merging its Digital Imaging and Wireless Business divisions.

What will this closer working relationship between the two areas mean for consumers? Better cameras in mobile phones? Almost certainly. More development of devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom? Highly likely. Improved wireless communications in mirrorless cameras? Watch this space!
