Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 May Use 16Mp Isocell Camera
After not-so-satisfactory sales of Samsung Galaxy S4, the South Korean company wants to start the next year with a bang. With the Galaxy Round, Samsung was the first company with curved smartphone and it could plan to release a bendable device in 2014. But, it doesn’t stop right there. We already hear rumors that Samsung’s flagship in 2014 will be equipped with 16MP Isocell camera sensor. As expected, the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 will have the new camera. Samsung has unveiled a roadmap of its future technologies, which involve new processors, displays and RAM modules.
Isocell cameras ensure improved light sensitivity on BSI (backside illuminated) sensors. Other than better low-light performance, users could also benefit from more natural color reproductions. Samsung said that the 16Mp sensor will be manufactured using the 1.12micro pixels design, better than the 8Mp camera on the back of iPhone 5S. At the moment, only Galaxy S4 Zoom is equipped with 16Mp camera, however it lacks the Isocell technology. In the mobile industry, only Sony and Nokia offer more than smartphones with camera higher 16 megapixels.
This may indicate that 13Mp camera sensor will no longer be used on flagships released in 2014. Samsung’s 13Mp smartphone sensor debuted with the Galaxy S4 for the first time this year and it was used later on the new phablet, Galaxy Note 3.
