quoted from Sammobile, Haesung Optics to supply chain of camera parts Samsung Mobile has been added. Haesung Optics does not supply its components directly to Samsung; Rather, it delivers to another Samsung supplier, which it uses to assemble the camera’s OIS (optical image stabilization) actuators. Haesung Optics does not yet have the means to produce a full OIS actuator; Therefore, it only supplies a smaller fraction of the total.

It is still unclear whether Samsung plans to move its supply chain out of China. Local companies had suffered due to Samsung’s aggressive cost-saving strategies; But at least it seems that Haesung Optics has rejoined the supply chain of this technology giant.
Given that Samsung Electro-Mechanics has taken 90% of Haesung Optics’ revenue in the past, it is an important event for Haesung Optics.
Currently, Samsung uses OIS technology for most of its Galaxy smartphone cameras, including the Galaxy A33 is used. Now, it seems that the Korean giant needs more parts suppliers to increase its production numbers. This could help some Korean companies get back on track.
