Could some of Sony's upcoming Xperia smartphones have cameras with optical image stabilization?24
ON Semiconductor demoed a new low-cost optical image stabilization solution at MWC 2015, saying that this doesn't need "a microprocessor or expensive software," instead using an optical image stabilization driver. As you can see in the video embedded below, a ON Semiconductor official is mentioning that the company's OIS solution can be "very successful in phones that are not just inexpensive, but also very expensive, like the Sony Xperia for example, or some of the expensive phones coming from Korean makers in this day and age." While this is far from being a confirmation of any kind, at least it means that Sony could consider adding OIS to future Xperias at no significant extra costs.
One of the upcoming Sony handsets that we hope to get a camera with OIS (be it from ON Semiconductor, or not) is the Xperia Z4, which should be released this summer. What do you think, should the Z4 feature an OIS camera, or is Sony's SteadyShot image stabilization solution enough?
