Samsung introduces premium Galaxy smartphone camera features to mid-range devices

Samsung has announced that it will bring the camera tech powering some of the flagship smartphones down to mid-range handsets. The South Korean tech firm is making this possible by trickling down its ISOCELL dual camera tech to mid-rangers in the market.

“Samsung Electronics, a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today introduced a total dual camera solution with ISOCELL Dual image sensors and proprietary software for two popular features – refocusing (bokeh) and low-light shooting (LLS). While such dual camera features had generally been exclusive to premium smartphones, Samsung’s ISOCELL Dual sensors and its library of proprietary software algorithms enable these features in lower price mobile devices,” said the blog post.
The firm explains that for OEMs it can be time consuming to integrate dual camera sensors in smartphones. The purpose of Samsung’s total dual camera solution is to simplify that process. The tech brings features like refocusing and LLS (Low Light Shooting) to lower-priced smartphones. “Samsung is coupling its refocusing algorithm with a 13 megapixel (Mp) and 5Mp set of image sensors, and its LLS algorithm with a set of two 8Mp sensors, to simplify implementation by OEMs,” adds the firm.

For those unaware, this is Samsung’s second announcement in a month, focussed on mid-range smartphones. Last month, the firm introduced Exynos 5 Series 7872 processor, a new chipset designed to power lower-priced handsets. The company said that with Exynos 5 Series 7872 processor, it will bring the performance of flagship smartphones down to mid-range handsets. The processor is made using 14-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology and has a 6-core CPU configured with two 2.0GHz ARM Cortex A-73 and four 1.6GHz Cortex A-53 cores.

Although it has not been mentioned when or in which devices Samsung plans to introduce this chipset, we assume that the processor may debut in any of the Galaxy A, Galaxy C or Galaxy J series in 2018.
