PowerLogics’ supply of camera modules for Samsung Galaxy A21s’ quad camera has declined significantly due to defects, TheElec has learned.

Rival and secondary supplier MCNEX is set to takeover those orders, people familiar with the matter said.

Samsung has launched the Galaxy A21s in India last month. 

PowerLogics co-developed the camera modules for the smartphone and was set to handle the initial volume. But there was defects in the initial batch, they said.

Samsung is planning to produce around 1.5 million units of the phone going forward.

It seems unlikely that PowerLogics will win the orders back and as smartphone companies usually push a product for sales in the first three month after launch and won’t change suppliers in that critical time frame. The camera module maker is expected to loses orders of around 3 million units from the setback.

PowerLogics has supplied camera modules for Samsung’s flagship smartphones in the past but it lacked experience in making quad camera modules. MCNEX, meanwhile, have supplied quad camera modules for 2020-model Galaxy A series launched late last year.

The loss of the order will hurt PowerLogics even more as it was the only major camera module maker to have posted a loss in the first quarter of 2020. The company posted 17.5 billion won in loss in the quarter __ MCNEX secured 19.6 billion won in operating profits, Partron 11.8 billion won, Cammsys 8 billion and Namuga 1.2 billion won.

More camera module suppliers are focusing on producing stable components and delivering them on time for Samsung in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Galaxy A21s sports a 48MP wide angle, 8MP ultra wide, 2MP marco and 2MP depth cameras. It has a 6.5-inch Liquid Crystal Display screen with 5000mAh battery. It is selling for 16,498 rupees in India.
