Portrait mode-style bokeh camera features has greatly been the realm of high-end flagships to this point. That’s due, in part to the fact that many device makers depend on a dual-camera system to create the effect, hiking up prices in the process. Samsung is all set to change that sooner, however, with a plan to bring its version of the tech to mid-range and entry-level handsets.
The company ha not mentioned anything with regard to which models will actually be getting the technology or when. Of course, it seems like a no-brainer that Samsung’s own many mid-level devices get first dibs, but the company has a good stand as a component maker for so many different manufactures. I’d expect the feature to arrive on third-party phones, as well.
Certainly, Sony in spite of having less success with its own phones, still holds the top spot for camera image sensors, but Samsung got a pretty decent chunk of the market, as well.
The company’s implementation of the technology is one of the more compelling features among flagships. Introduced with the Galaxy Note 8, the tech provides more customizable depth-of-field effect than many competitors.
As the deal involves both its proprietary image sensors and software algorithms, that likely means that the full package will be arriving on any devices that choose to implement it. The package also invoves improved low light shooting, courtesy of a pair of eight-megapixel sensors.
