Samsung Electro-Mechanics facing trouble in supply for Apple’s Folded Zoom parts
According to TheElec report, that Samsung Electro-Mechanics is not expected to be included in the supply chain for folded zoom parts that Apple plans to apply in 2023. In the past, there was an observation in the market that Apple would procure some parts from Samsung Electro-Mechanics to solve the problem of the folded zoom patent, but for now, the possibility is slim.
Apple is expected to produce folded zoom parts and modules in its existing supply chain, such as LG Innotek, and solve the patent problem in other ways. According to the information, it is known that Samsung Electro-Mechanics will not be included in the Folded Zoom supply chain, which Apple is planning to apply to the iPhone in 2023.
The folded zoom is a periscope-type telephoto camera module that bends light with a prism and delivers it to the image sensor. It is an optical zoom technology that takes a distant subject directly and can take clearer pictures than a digital zoom that simply stretches the image.

Apple further plans to apply Folded Zoom to the iPhone in 2023, but patents are a stumbling block. Israeli Core Photonics, which Samsung acquired in 2019, preempted the patent for the folded zoom structure.
And Samsung Electronics’ supply chain companies such as Samsung Electro-Mechanics and Jahwa Electronics also held the actuator (drive system) patent advantageous for moving the barrel of the folded zoom lens.
If Samsung Electro-Mechanics supplies the Folded Zoom actuator, it will replace Apple’s existing actuator partners, Japan Alps and Mitsumi. For Apple, it will be possible to solve the patent problem and minimize changes in the supply chain.
At the time, there was a forecast that ‘C-level’ negotiations, which are high-level between Samsung Electronics and Apple, would have to take place before such a deal could be concluded. Moreover, Samsung’s position in the smartphone market is shrinking recently. For Samsung Electro-Mechanics, there is not much profit from supplying parts rather than folded zoom modules.
If Apple wants to apply Folded Zoom to the iPhone in 2023, it will have to decide on both product specifications and supply chain by the end of the year. LG Innotek is developing the Folded Zoom.

Samsung Rugged devices’ performance exceeded Kruger Construction expectations
Samsung provides Rugged Galaxy devices that meet the needs of industries that demand reliable, durable, and powerful mobile devices under a variety of working conditions, even in the harshest environments. Recently, by testing the durability of the Rugged lineup, construction contractor Murray Kruger conveys that the Samsung Galaxy XCover 6 Pro and Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro are capable of surviving harsh construction conditions.
Kruger has been in business for 22 years and started his own contracting company in 2012. It specializes in insurance repairs and renovations, possibly one of the harshest construction environments with smoke, ash, clogged basements, toxic fumes, and below-freezing temperatures.
According to a 2022 survey by Samsung Electronics Canada of Toronto Building Society members, more than 40% of respondents believe their current mobile devices cannot cope with their work environment.
Both the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro and Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro are IP68 rated and meet the MIL-STD-810H standard for harsh environment durability. The devices are scratch-resistant, water- and dust-resistant, can withstand drops of up to 1.5 meters, and can function in extreme altitudes and temperatures.
The advanced Gloves Mode allows the screens of both devices to remain touch-responsive even if the user is wearing leather gloves. Even, the staff of Kruger Construction also noted that both devices provide excellent connectivity even behind steel barricades or in flooded basements. Galaxy XCover 6 Pro exclusively supports 5G and Wi-Fi 6E for ultra-fast connectivity.
Through both the Samsung rugged devices, the construction crew got creative. Krugers puts several tests but the performance of these devices exceeded expectations.
