Samsung released a video providing some insights on the functionality of the ISOCELL 2.0 sensor. The tech giant stressed that the new technology will minimize “optical loss” and would deliver major improvements in light sensitivity, which will help camera sensors with smaller pixels punch above their weight and absorb more light.
Furthermore, Samsung hints in the video that image sensors would be able to pack in more pixels to produce finer details without any decline in the quality of vivid color reproduction. All these are certainly pointing to future higher resolution smartphone camera sensors.
Samsung’s smartphone camera sensors generally use ISOCELL technology, but its most recent sensors have the ISOCELL Plus technology, slightly different from the basic ISOCELL technology due to some material changes in its components for improved quality. But the ISOCELL 2.0 has further improved the sensor quality several notches ahead.
The ISOCELL 2.0 technology is believed to be already in the works for Samsung’s upcoming offerings for 2021. The company previously confirmed that some 0.7-micron pixel sensors announced in late 2020 would have the technology, obviously produced from the semiconductor arm of Samsung.
We however await the berthing of the innovative technology on an actual Samsung smartphone in the coming months. That is when we can know whether the hype on ISOCELL 2.0 is justified.
