Samsung’s Next-Gen Flagships May Come With Ultra-Slim 12 MP and 24 MP Camera Sensors


The device that is expected from Samsung at the moment is the Samsung Galaxy S9. Speculations about Samsung Galaxy S9 are already making the headlines with the latest rumor that it will sport the yet-to-be-released Snapdragon 845 chipset.Ā There have also been stories that the next-genĀ flagships from Samsung may come with environmental sensors. Today, Samsung introduced two newbies to its ISOCELL collections which are theĀ Dual PixelĀ 1.28-micrometer (Ī¼m)Ā ISOCELL Fast 2L9 withĀ 12 MP resolution and theĀ TetracellĀ ultra-small 0.9Ī¼mĀ ISOCELL Slim 2X7 withĀ 24MP resolution. Flagship devices such as Galaxy S8 and Note 8 used the former but with a larger 1.4Ī¼m pixel size. These sensors will probably be used in Samsung’s next-gen flagship device.

The entirely newĀ 24MP ISOCELL Slim 2X7 is probably the firstĀ of its kind in the industry and it would produce a resolution that has never been seen on a Samsung smartphone. Its 0.9Ī¼mĀ size indicates that the individual pixel will capture less light and the South Korean manufacturing giant hasĀ enhanced their isolation thus there is less disturbance on this sensor when compared to previous sensors.Ā ISOCELL’sĀ DTI (deep trench isolation) technology ensures that this sensorĀ reduces colourĀ interference and it has the maximum capacity to contain light information.

Ben K. Hur, Vice President of System LSI Marketing at Samsung Electronics said

ā€œSamsung ISOCELL Fast 2L9 and ISOCELL Slim 2X7 are new image sensors that fully utilize Samsungā€™s advanced pixel technology, and are highly versatile as they can be placed in both front and rear of a smartphone,ā€…ā€œSamsung plans to further develop the Dual Pixel and 0.9Ī¼m-pixel product categories, and expand applicable devices for ISOCELL image sensors that can enhance photographing experiences for consumers.ā€

TheĀ ISOCELL Fast 2L9 has a small pixel size and it can fit into slimmer camera modules which ensures that you get a slimmer smartphone. In this regards, theĀ 24MP ISOCELL Slim 2X7 can even do better. Since the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 will probably use a dual camera set-up, we will most likely haveĀ one or both of these new ISOCELL sensors in this smartphone.
