What is the rattling sound I hear when I shake my Samsung Galaxy Alpha?

Rattling noise inside the camera

The device supports a high speed shutter function that automatically focuses the camera. The sound you hear is the camera lens shutter moving inside the barrel and it's a normal sound. When you turn the camera on the sound will stop as it is actively focusing. Sometimes the device makes this sound when you vibrate or lightly shake the device.

 

Important: The Camera module has a part installed that limits lens unit movement in the space for the camera module so the part will not break when you shake the device.
