With the implementation of the pixel binning we have witnessed a megapixel escalation on smartphone cameras. For some time the market seems to have settled on 48 megapixels, but thanks to Samsung Galaxy A70S the level could rise further.
According to rumors, the next South Korean medium range will be the first smartphone in the world with a 64-megapixel main camera. The record will be guaranteed by the very recent Isocell Bright GW1 sensor recently unveiled by Samsung itself.
It benefits from the Tetracell technology which, together with other algorithms similar to those adopted by other manufacturers, allows to obtain 16 megapixel images from situations in which light is scarce and the software, to obtain better photos, must combine four pixels to obtain one more bright.
In addition to this, the GW1 sensor supports HDR up to 100 dB which helps to increase the vividness of colors and the slow-motion in Full HD at 480 frames per second. For the moment we don’t know anything else about the Samsung Galaxy A70S, except that it should be a technical update of the product launched last month.
