Samsung may have just taken a huge leap forward in technology with the announcement of the highly innovative camera sensor, the ISOCELL 2.0, intended to provide the building blocks for future powerful cameras.
ISOCELL 2.0 technology is expected to significantly improve the overall quality in terms of light sensitivity and color. New camera sensor technology will be needed for more megapixel cameras.
Samsung has released a video providing information on the functionality of the ISOCELL 2.0 sensor. The tech giant stressed that the new technology will minimize “optical loss” and offer major improvements in light sensitivity, which will help camera sensors with smaller pixels to exceed their weight and absorb More light.
Additionally, Samsung hints in the video that image sensors would be able to pack more pixels to produce finer detail without any drop in the quality of vivid color reproduction. All of this certainly points to future higher resolution smartphone camera sensors.
Samsung smartphone camera sensors generally use ISOCELL technology, but its newer sensors have ISOCELL Plus technology, which is slightly different from the base ISOCELL technology due to some material changes in its components for improved quality. But the ISOCELL 2.0 has further improved the quality of the sensor by several notches.
ISOCELL 2.0 technology is believed to be already in the works for Samsung’s upcoming 2021 offerings. The company has previously confirmed that some 0.7 micron pixel sensors announced in late 2020 will have the technology, obviously produced by the semiconductor branch of Samsung.
However, we expect the innovative technology to dock on a genuine Samsung smartphone in the coming months. This is when we can tell if the hype about ISOCELL 2.0 is justified.
