Samsungu2019s focus on high-end compacts will result in an EX1 replacement, expected this year

What Digital Camera quizzed

Samsung’s Vice President of Digital Imaging, Mr Sunhong Lim, on the future of

Samsung’s compact camera business.

With the increase in

Smartphone camera capabilities it’s likely the coming years will see a fall in

lower-end compact sales, leading to a rise in high-spec, specialist cameras.

When asked if the Samsung EX1 would see a replacement model this year, Mr Lim

confirmed there were plans to announce an upgrade in the future. There were no

details that could be divulged about the model, but any nod that exciting tech

is on the way is good enough for us.
