The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 is imminent. Samsung recently sent invites to its Unpacked 2018 event, which will take place at MWC 2018 in Barcelona for a change. Samsung hinted at the ‘Next Big Thing’ for the Galaxy S9 by teasing the phone saying “The Camera, Reimagined.” Furthermore, Samsung posted on their blog about a new ISOCELL camera unit. This could be the “reimagined” one we’ll see debut on the upcoming Galaxy S9 models.
Samsung has posted information regarding a new ISOCELL camera, and due to all the camera hype associated with the expected Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, it’s very likely this will be used on the upcoming phone.
The new ISOCELL camera sensor brings a bunch of new features. It features ISOCELL Bright’s Tetracell technology, said to improve pictures taken under low-light conditions by “merging four neighboring pixels to work as one big pixel.” There is also something known as ‘The Smart WDR,’ which will permit users the use of multiple exposures in a single shot. This should, theoretically, produce greater detail in dark and bright spots.
The camera also features a 3-stack FRS component. This component will be able to capture fast-moving objects in low-light conditions thanks to a very accurate auto focusing mechanism. It will also allow for the recording of slow motion video at 480fps in 1080p. The ISOCELL pixel sensor is a super thin module, measuring just 0.9um thick. Best of all, it provides “unique versatility” for dual cameras, giving users DSLR like effects by managing light sensitivity, depth and brightness.
This will likely be the sensor boarded on Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S9 models, but as always, we’ll have to wait and see before confirming anything. Stay tuned for more from Droid Turf.
