Samsung on Thursday announced a pair of new ISOCELL pixel image sensors that will likely find their inside the company's future phones, paving the way for higher resolution and sharper photographs. One of them, the 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1, could end up in the company's flagship Galaxy S11 next year. The other ISOCELL addition is a 48-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM2. Both of them are 0.8-micrometer pixel image sensors. With these two new sensors, Samsung offers a lineup of 0.8-micrometer pixel image sensors ranging from existing 20 megapixels all the way up to now 64 megapixels. "Over the past few years, mobile phone cameras have become the main instrument for recording and sharing our everyday... Read more...
Samsung today officially announced its latest ISOCELL camera sensor, which was specifically designed with "punch hole" displays in mind, or in Samsung parlance, Infinity-O. The problem with the tiny holes cut into the display to make room for a front-facing camera is the accompanying image sensor also has to fit within this cutout. Enter the ISOCELL Slim 3T2, which Samsung says is the industry's smallest image sensor, measuring just 1/3.4 inches (5.1 millimeters) diagonally. Samsung's new 20MP sensor features pixels that are 0.8 microns in size and uses pixel-binning, which it calls Tetracell, to combine four pixels to function as one. With this in mind, Samsung says that its new ISOCELL Slim... Read more...
Samsung is officially owns an image sensor brand. Adding to its many product segments—smartphones, televisions, displays, washing machines, and the list goes one—Samsung today introduced its image sensor brand called ISOCELL at the 2017 Mobile World Congress in Shanghai. Fittingly enough, the new brand is named after Samsung's own ISOCELL technology. Might we find this integrated into the company's forthcoming Galaxy Note 8? More on that in a moment. This is not actually Samsung's first foray into image sensors. Samsung first introduced its ISOCELL technology in 2013. What it does is separate each pixel with a physical barrier that reduces unwanted color cross-talk among pixels, which results... Read more...
The days when camera phones were novelties that shot blurry, low-res photos seem so far away that it’s ridiculous. Innovation in that space has exploded, and Samsung is pushing the envelope even more with a new advanced pixel technology for CMOS sensors in cameras called ISOCELL. ISOCELL is designed to increase the light sensitivity of the CMOS sensor and result in better color fidelity in low-light situations. More technically, “ISOCELL technology forms a physical barrier between neighboring pixels – isolating the pixel. This isolation enables more photons to be collected from the micro-lens and absorbed into the correct pixel’s photodiode minimizing undesired electrical... Read more...
