Almost a month ahead of the launch of the new flagship handsets at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, Samsung just revealed its new ISOCELL Camera Sensors family that comes with many new technologies such as Tetracell and Smart WDR for enhancing image results. The new camera sensor technologies might enable features such as slow-mo video recording and variable aperture that is expected to launch with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in the next month. As some early rumours suggested, the new technologies will blend with Samsung’s Dual Pixel sensors to enhance the overall camera experience.
First on the list, is the ISOCELL Bright feature that uses the presence of the company’s Tetracell technology that helps to improve light sensitivity in low-light conditions by amalgamating four neighbouring pixels into one giant pixel. The technology was actually announced for the first time back in October of 2017.
Samsung has also integrated its Smart WDR feature that enables the sensor to capture multiple exposures in a single shot. It seems that this feature is there to beautify selfies and the shots mainly taken by the front camera. The combination of Tetracell and Smart WDR will enable the new camera sensors to capture greater detail in both dark and bright environments over what has been offered by Samsung so far.

Similar to this, there is also a three-stack fast readout sensor, called ISOCELL Fast, that is touted to enable 1080p (Full HD) Video recording at an astonishing frame rate up to 480 fps. Samsung has also enabled faster autofocus with advanced PDAF (Phase Detecting Autofocus) technologies that come through Dual Pixel and Super PD sensor.
Similarly, there is an ISOCELL Slim that provides the high-resolution image capturing the experience in a small and thin presence as low as 0.9 microns. Samsung has designed it’s ISOCELL Dual which enables features like low-light shooting, depth sensor for out-focusing effects and optical zoom. The dual camera setup empowering ISOCELL Dual is expected to get a top-notch treatment on the Galaxy S9+ that is rumoured to come with two sensors on the back.

‘Super Speed‘ Camera
According to a recently surfaced picture of the Samsung Galaxy S9 box, the upcoming device will come with a ‘Super Speed’ camera technology. The smartphone appears to have an 8-megapixel AF selfie camera on the front and a Super Speed Dual Pixel 12-megapixel sensor on the back. It’s also expected to have a ‘Super Slow-mo’ mode and optical image stabilization (OIS) as well as two different aperture sizes – f/1.5 and f/2.4. The variable aperture could allow the user to pick the one that best suits the environment.
Other than the camera-focussed features, the box of the Galaxy S9 also showed that the device will have stereo speakers tuned by AKG as well as AKG-tuned earphones. The device was also spotted with a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display with round corners, like the Galaxy S8.
More details about the high-end camera capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are expected to be revealed at MWC 2018 next month.
