Samsung introduced a new lineup of its ISOCELL camera sensors at the MWC 2017 Expo in Shanghai. The company introduced four different brands under this ISOCELL camera sensors, one of which is the ISOCELL Dual and as the name implies this brand will be responsible for bringing the dual camera tech in future devices of Samsung.
Very little was surfaced last week about these brands. But, now it seems like we are getting a chance to know a little more about one of the brands.
A recent presentation reveals some additional details of the ISOCELL Dual brand and gives us a peek at Samsung’s plans.
According to the presentation slides, the Dual camera setup can be configured in three different ways – Zoom, Depth sensing and Low Light shooting. Samsung also offers to help others with custom dual camera designs on the sensor and software levels.
The Slim line that will benefit from Samsung’s silicon node advantages claims “superior image quality” with small pixels built on a 28nm node.
One of the slides of this presentation also shows that Samsung is likely to go beyond the smartphones. In a slide with the title “Solution for future driving” reflects that Samsung is also aiming to use the ISOCELL camera sensors in the cars. Samsung’s recent collaboration with Audi is a hint that multiple cameras on the modern cars can use the ISOCELL sensors.
Such automotive sensor should offer excellent low-light performance with a high dynamic range and high-temperature endurance. Much still needs to be revealed about these ISOCELL Dual camera sensors. Stay tuned.
