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.
