Samsung seemed to have been going strong in a number of departments including smartphones, home appliances, PC peripherals, cameras etc. But is it so?! Apparently a new report claims that the Korean electronics giant is planning to lay off its digital camera department.
According to the report coming from Korea, Samsung is planning to focus more on the smartphones, optics and mobile division. In fact the Korean electronics giants will be transferring their existing Digital Camera workforce onto the Optics division.
This isn't the first time Samsung is shutting down a department. Apparently the company had shut down its successful Laptop department to focus more towards manufacturing Chromebooks. There isn't any official confirmation from Samsung as of now. However considering the fact that Samsung hasn't launched a digital point and shoot/mirrorless camera for long, the report might indeed come out to be true.
Nevertheless with the digital camera team moving over to the optics department, you can expect Samsung to come up with some excellent smartphone camera in future. Further the buzz around the Samsung S7's camera re-affirms the issue.
