Samsung decided to focus on camera technology at MWC Shanghai 2018, announcing the new ISOCELL Plus Technology. An upgrade from 2013’s ISOCELL, this technology lets CMOS image sensors capture more ambient light, increasing color fidelity and reducing the graininess of photos taken in low light.
“ISOCELL forms a physical barrier between the neighboring pixels, reducing color crosstalk and expanding the full-well capacity. This enables each pixel to absorb and hold more light than the conventional backside-illuminated (BSI) image sensor design for superior image quality,” explained Samsung. In layman’s terms, expect to see an up to 15-percent enhancement in light sensitivity.
What really catches the eye in the ISOCELL Plus announcement is this phrase: “optimal solution for developing super-resolution cameras with over 20 megapixels.”
If you take into account the fact that Samsung sent out invites for the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which will take place on August 9, you can get a pretty good picture on what type of camera this flagship will have!
