Today, Samsung announced its ISOCELL camera sensors at Mobile World Congress in Shanghai. While the firm did not give away too many details, there were some interesting bits of information that could indicate that it will be arriving in the upcoming Galaxy Note8.
The new ISOCELL sensors have four main principles that are followed:
- ISOCELL Bright sensors deliver bright and sharp images with high color fidelity and reduced noise in low light environments
- ISOCELL Fast sensors provide fast autofocus onto still or moving objects even when dark
- ISOCELL Slim sensors adopt the smallest pixel sizes available in the market at 0.9-1.0um, yet produce high quality images for the slimmest devices
- ISOCELL Dual sensors can be mixed and matched in various combinations on consumer devices to bring about features demanded in the latest dual camera trend
If rumors about the Galaxy Note8 offering a dual camera setup are to be believed, there is the possibility that it could utilize these new ISOCELL sensors.
Naturally, most of the information that has leaked about the Note8 is just rumors at this point, like the render that appeared online just a few days ago. Although the dual cameras will be a nice addition to the handset, there is still the downside of Samsung not being able to integrate the fingerprint reader into the display. While the firm did try to make the technology a reality, we know from a report earlier this month that it was not ready for the launch of the Note8.
Luckily, we might not have to wait long, since there has been a rumor that it could launch the Galaxy Note8 at an Unpacked event sometime in August. While Note devices in the past have been quite pricey, this upcoming unit could take the cake, with the rumor it could cost close to €1,000.
