Samsung unveils slimmer image sensors for large-screen phones

Samsung’s new ISOCELL image sensors could be in the Galaxy S9

As Apple, Samsung and (perhaps, surprisingly) Google battle to claim the top spot in smartphone imaging, we've been left with lenses jutting out of the device, or in the case of the Note 8, a thicker phone.

According to Ben Hur, vice president of System LSI Marketing for Samsung Electronics, "ISOCELL Fast 2L9 and ISOCELL Slim 2X7 are new image sensors that fully utilize Samsung's advanced pixel technology, and are highly versatile as they can be placed in both front and rear of a smartphone".

Trump says 'we'll see' on NAFTA talks
Trudeau, in his brief remarks to reporters, spoke of the ties that bind the two neighbors and major trading partners. Donohue pledged to fight "like hell" to defend Nafta if Trump tried to pull out, and urged Lighthizer to get a deal.

The new ISOCELL sensors combined with Dual Pixel technology are said to be capable of delivering fast autofocus at a reduced pixel size from the previous Dual Pixel sensor. Likely ideal as a mid-range rear-facing camera sensor, it will enable features like bokeh effects and will apply improvements to quick focus and low light photography.

The 1.2 megapixel ISOCELL Fast 2L9 comes with dual pixel, while the 2.4 megapixel ISOCELL Slim 2X7 has tetracell technology. Each pixel contains two photodiodes instead of one for better object detection and tracking.

The President Of Panama Declared Today A National Holiday
Valera wrote on Twitter after the game: "The voice of the people has been heard; celebrate Panama's historic day". And it worked, as Panama held on to secure their place in a World Cup finals for the first time ever.

"Samsung plans to further develop the Dual Pixel and 0.9μm-pixel product categories, and expand applicable devices for ISOCELL image sensors that can enhance photographing experiences for consumers". This will allow smartphones with this sensor to take sharp images of smaller objects that stand still, along with the ability to track and lock on moving objects, even in low light settings. Curiously, Samsung is also billing the ISOCELL Slim 2X7 as a great front camera sensor. The Slim 2X7 has a 24-megapixel configuration with Tetra Cell technology. Samsung added this sensor also has Tetracell technology, which allows it to take brighter images dark settings, along with more detailed photos in brighter settings. "With smaller pixel size, the ISOCELL Fast 2L9 can fit into slimmer camera modules, enabling bump-less designs for smartphones", explains the company.

Samsung foresees an upbeat growth potential for image sensors.
