Samsung readies dual-camera for Galaxy Note 8

Published

We’re still a couple of months away from the arrival of the Galaxy Note 8, but we already have an idea of what’s in store for its camera.

Revealed during Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai, Samsung showed off four different sub-brands for its revived ISOCELL image sensor technology, the last of which could very well be inside the next-generation Galaxy Note smartphone.

This was taken from Samsung’s Newsroom:

ISOCELL Bright sensors deliver bright and sharp images with high color fidelity and reduced noise in low light environments; ISOCELL Fast sensors provide fast autofocus onto still or moving objects even when dark; ISOCELL Slim sensors adopt the smallest pixel sizes available in the market at 0.9-1.0um, yet produce high quality images for the slimmest devices; ISOCELL Dual sensors can be mixed and matched in various combinations on consumer devices to bring about features demanded in the latest dual camera trend.

From the looks of it — and based on the latest Galaxy Note 8 rumors — Samsung’s next flagship is likely to employ a dual-camera setup. The interesting here is it may not be of the optical zoom kind; instead, the technology might be similar to Huawei’s Leica system, wherein the secondary sensor is monochrome to create sharper photos.

If this ISOCELL tech sounds familiar, you probably saw it in the Galaxy S5’s promo materials back in 2014. Samsung eventually dropped the brand from its smartphone lineup in favor of Sony’s popular image sensors, which have become the industry standard for how well handset cameras should perform.
