Olympus denies partnership with Samsung on the Galaxy S22

The Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup.

Olympus and Samsung are rumoured to be collaborating on the Galaxy S22 phones according to a report this year, but the camera maker just issued statements denying it. 

In a statement to LetsGoDigital, Olympus says there is no collaboration between the company and Samsung. When Android Authority reached out to follow up, a marketing spokesperson gave a slightly different statement: 

The only official statement I can give you from our side regarding this is that from our point of view there is nothing to talk about or to announce.

Android Authority speculates that the statement does not technically rule out a partnership. The statement also did not rule out the possibility of the companies engaging in talks before.

There have been numerous collaborations between phone brands and camera makers in the Android space. Huawei announced a partnership with Leica in 2016 to "reinvent smartphone photograhy". Vivo teased in December 2020 about its partnership with Zeiss for its X60 series phones. Earlier this year, OnePlus confirmed a collaboration with Hasselblad to "co-develop the next generation of smartphone camera systems for OnePlus flagship devices". 

Samsung is rumoured to unveil the Galaxy S22 before the end of the year. Purported specs include display sizes from 6.6 to 6.81-inches and Exynos chipsets with AMD GPU. The Time-of-Flight sensor could also be dropped from the Galaxy S22.
