Aside from their Exynos CPUs and Tizen OS, Samsung has introduced another in-house technology for their smartphones in the form of their new ISOCELL image sensors.
Introduced back in 2013, Samsung’s ISOCELL image censors is boasted as the optimum solution for devices that require ultra-slim designs with high quality cameras. ISOCELL works by separating each pixel with a physical barrier to reduce color crosstalk among pixels. This allows ISOCELL to take photos with high color fidelity with excellent image quality even with smaller pixels.
The Samsung ISOCELL is divided into four categories depending on the performance needed:
ISOCELL Bright – Sensors deliver bright and sharp images with high color fidelity and reduced noise in low light environments.
ISOCELL Fast – Sensors provide fast autofocus onto still or moving objects even when dark.
ISOCELL Slim – Sensors adopt the smallest pixel sizes available in the market at 0.9 – 1.0um, yet produce high quality images for the slimmest devices.
ISOCELL Dual – Sensors can be mixed and matched in various combinations on consumer devices to bring about features demanded in the latest dual-camera trend.
Aside from the ISOCELL sensors, Samsung is expected to feature advanced logic solutions, which includes the Exynos 9 series that uses a 10nm FinFET fabrication process for a wide range of platforms that include mobile, VR, and wearable devices.
