Samsung confirms a 16 MP ISOCELL camera sensor is on tap for future flagships

0. phoneArena 07 Nov 2013, 05:17 posted on

A Samsung presentation slide had a new 16 MP ISOCELL sensor listed that we didn't previously know about. When it announced the ISOCELL tech with superior low-light abilities, Samsung only mentioned an 8 MP unit is in the works, but the influx of 13 MP and even 20 MP or 40 MP phones, has apparently upped the resolution ante for it...

1080p is a 2k resolution. If you don't believe me go do some quick research.

More detail and overall better looking photos from higher MP.

Based on computation, given pixel pitch of 1.12 micron and 16.1 megapixel sensor, the sensor size will be 1/2.8" to 1/3.0"

Sony already developed 16.4 MP Exmor R for mobile way back 2010. Note that the improvements in the Exmor RS were HDR for video as well as support for 4K video recording and 120 fps video rec. (delete the space on "h" and on the org part)

If this were a new hardware feature on Apple's next iPhone the article would have stated, "this is a REVOLUTIONARY new camera sensor and there's nothing else like it," instead of writing, "1.12 micron pixels, so we wouldn't expect the utmost quality from it, not to mention there wasn't anything about an OIS module around it." And, OIS is not available on iPhones either but, a limited iOS is.

The z1 and Nokia phones are low end point and shoots, Samsung doesn't care about camera as long as it looks good to most people which a normal camera does.
