Samsung has teased on its Samsung Tomorrow blog that “the future of cameras is in a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.” The company started off the blog post with a rundown of how far its smartphone camera technology has progressed over the last 15 years and, while it didn’t name the Galaxy S6 specifically, it made some pretty clear references to the device which means we can undoubtedly expect Samsung’s next flagship device to come with an amazing camera.
Over the last several years, smartphone cameras have been transformed from a novelty feature to a sophisticated photographic device. Small in size but large in capability, the smartphone camera now has the ability to turn any user into a budding artist, photographer or cinematographer and allow them to explore their creativity with an array of ever advancing functions and features. The more innovative we are with advancing the smartphone camera, the more we witness a growing platform of unbounded ingenuity and imagination. Fifteen years have passed since we introduced the cellphone with an integrated camera. In the year 2000, Samsung set an industry standard by integrating the first ever, a 0.3-megapixel camera, into our SCH-V200 model. By 2002, the mobile phone camera had rapidly evolved from a quirky gimmick to a useful device that was both practical and convenient.
