Samsung outs ultra-slim ISOCELL image sensor for full-screen smartphones
Samsung has announced a new ultra-slim image sensor designed to be used on smartphones with full-screen displays, the ISOCELL Slim 3T2.
The 0.8?m-pixel ISOCELL Slim 3T2 is the industry’s most compact image sensor at 1/3.4 inches with 20MP resolution. The size makes it easy to fit in tiny camera modules, including those with tiny notches or hole-in display on the front.
In addition to high clarity and detail, it also boasts high color fidelity by adopting Samsung’s ISOCELL Plus technology. When used as a rear camera, it adopts an RGB color filter array instead of Tetracell technology. Compared to a 13MP sensor with the same module height, the 20MP 3T2 retains 60-percent higher effective resolution at 10x digital zoom that presents clearer and more accurate results.
The Samsung ISOCELL Slim 3T2 is expected to be in mass production in the first quarter of this year.
