Samsung is the undisputed market leader right now, but given that a number of other companies have released impressive bendable phones this year and some manufacturers are apparently preparing for release refined versions of their older phones, the South Korean giant will have to fight harder to maintain its position. One area that could be improved is the camera and it looks like the company is already on it.
