On average by 25%
Samsung is going to raise prices for image sensors for mobile devices.
System LSI is the world's second largest manufacturer of image sensors for mobile cameras, after Sony. Therefore, increasing prices for ISOCELL sensors will affect many manufacturers.
Moreover, prices will be raised significantly: on average by 25%, and in some cases the increase will exceed 30%. Apparently, this will primarily affect sensors with a resolution of 32 megapixels and higher, that is, mid-budget and top-end models.
Next year, the smartphone market is expected to return to growth, and Samsung apparently wants to make money on it in this way. At the same time, other market players may well follow the example of the Korean giant.
