It's fair to say that cameras are the point of fiercest competition in high-end smartphones, with Google, Samsung, and Apple constantly one-upping each other. Samsung is showing off its latest innovation, which it calls ISOCELL 2.0. The improved image sensor cells will allow more light to be isolated in each chamber. Read More
Realme's recent phones have all gone pretty much the same way — incredible value considering the spec sheet, but slightly underwhelming cameras. That was true of the X2 Pro I reviewed last year and seemed to still be the case when Prasham recently looked at the X7 Pro 5G. The Oppo/OnePlus sibling is hoping to turn a corner with its next smartphone lineup, however, thanks to a brand-new 108MP camera system and a bunch of new features. Read More
It doesn't take a physicist to figure out that the less light a camera sensor can capture, the fewer details the resulting picture will have. And yet, the challenge with mobile photography has always been about miniaturization without excessive compromise — how much light can you pull in an instant from smaller photo sites? Samsung may have developed an answer bright enough to debut: it will have its 43.7MP ISOCELL Slim GH1 sensor on volume production by the end of this year. Read More
Earlier this month, Samsung unveiled a new camera sensor capable of reaching a 64MP resolution, dethroning Sony's 48MP product. Although some expected it would make its way into the upcoming Galaxy Note 10, the company will instead fit it into the lower-end Galaxy A70s, according to reports. Read More
The name of the game when it comes to gargantuan smartphone camera sensors is pixel binning. It seemed like all the component makers had a 48MP unit on offer last year because we saw them pop up everywhere. And by "everywhere," we mean everywhere. Now, Samsung is taking it another step further with a new 64MP ISOCELL sensor. Read More
MWC Shanghai started today and Samsung is on the floor making some announcements. The first one is the growth of its ISOCELL technology to become a standalone image sensor brand, with 4 new sub-brands that cater to different devices and markets. The aim is to make it easier for customers to recognize the main strength and features of future devices' cameras.
The 4 sub-brands are Bright for great low-light images, Fast for quick autofocus even in the dark, Slim for thin sensors that still deliver great photos in slim devices, and Dual which have combinations of different sensors to bring multiple features in one device. Read More
