The upcoming high-end handsets from Samsung, will embody the new generation CMOS sensor ISOCELL, an advanced system with enhanced light sensitivity, for sharper shots pictures even in poor lighting conditions. The technology improves the existing back-side illumination (BSI) CMOS device, placing barriers around each pixel. These barriers reduce color bleeding and noise associated with shooting in low light conditions. With technology ISOCELL achieved up to 30% greater light absorption, while reducing to 30% divergence phenomenon (crosstalk) between the pixels, as compared with the existing technology BSI.

Isocell sensor, is the first sensor that integrates new technology carries the code name S5K4H5YB and a creation of the research department of Samsung Electronics. It has 8 megapixel resolution, in dimensions that corresponding to a visual format ¼ inch with ISOCELL pixels size 1.12 micron. According to the official announcement of the Korean company, mass production begins in the middle of next quarter.

The vice president of System LSI marketing group Samsung Electronics, says of them: “Through the advancement of technology separating pixels, the cameras of smartphones and tablets have allowed, easier than ever, the capturing of clear images of consumers, which can be shared with the world. The technology ISOCELL is another innovation that raises the bar for image quality, and demonstrates the technological superiority of Samsung in image sensors that are used to mobile devices. “

In a related announcement, the research firm Techno System Research, estimates that in 2014, approximately 66% of smartphones will have image sensors analysis at 8 megapixel.
