Samsung showcases the ISOCELL 2.0 tech, edging us closer to 100MP+ cameras


Samsung may have just made a huge leap in technology with the announcement of the highly innovative camera sensor, the ISOCELL 2.0, meant to provide the building blocks for future powerful cameras.

Samsung’s ISOCELL CIS brand ranks second after Sony

The ISOCELL 2.0 technology is expected to greatly improve the overall quality in terms of light sensitivity and color. The new camera sensor technology will be needed for higher megapixel cameras.

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.
