Omnivison announced its 1um pixel sensor 5 months ago. It's a shame Samsung takes all the credits.
vrvly, 29 Jul 2015I would take a bump with 19Mp. but great approach like in 1020, but less pixels and less noise... moreyeah, more megapixels, then will just go back to low quality-low megapixel the moment you upload it in your favorite social media..
nickname, 29 Jul 2015some people never seem to be satisfiedWelcome to GSMArena...
same quality camera is not what I expected. at least better... now just memory fail and its completely fail...
I would take a bump with 19Mp. but great approach like in 1020, but less pixels and less noise. Shame that others got 20Mp and more will come. will probably wait till end year..
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2015Samsung still produce sensor but most new product as S6 or Note samsunng using sensor from Son... moreIt's cheaper to outsource product thats why they use sony in most of their devices. It's not always bout quality, it's profitability.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2015So basically they'll be able to release low dynamic range sensors with much noise in low light... moreYou meant to say "Like HTC did with their 4mp camera in HTC One", the One that failed horribly in good light but shined in low light? The One that failed dramatically with its 4mp camera, so hard they had it renamed in all the shops to "HMP" camera not to show their fail of "4mp" compared to "13mp" in a cheaper phone from same HTC right next to it?
Apple didn't choose to go for bigger pixel size. They just chose to use a cheaper sensor, that is all. Without Steve, Apple hasn't made anything impressive so far. This is my personal opinion.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2015So basically they'll be able to release low dynamic range sensors with much noise in low light... moreThe galax s6 has a really good low light performance with 1,2um, the LG g4 is what I would call even better with 1,12um pixels, so it seems that the quality of the sensor is more important than it's actual size
So basically they'll be able to release low dynamic range sensors with much noise in low light.
To achieve good photo quality, especially in low light, you have to do the contrary - increase the pixel size, like for example Apple did in the iPhone, where they have 1.5 um pixels.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2015Samsung still produce sensor but most new product as S6 or Note samsunng using sensor from Son... moreSamsung image sensor is called ISOCELL sensor. The Sony sensor is used in most Samsung smartphone due to low production capacity of ISOCELL sensor. Only a few of Galaxy S6 are using isocell sensor. You can check samsung camera sensor by using this code: *#34971539#
That's pretty impressive. I wouldve thought reducing pixel sizes would negatively affect image quality, so definitely hyped for this. Cant wait to see real world usage though.
Vaio Agent, 29 Jul 2015Camera was last advantage for SONY but Samsung this time beats SONY again.......Really? Sony's sensor still dominates the market.
Samsung still produce sensor but most new product as S6 or Note samsunng using sensor from Sony? Why? What is the different? Is that sony's sensor better samsung sensor? Sensor is key point to evalution camera phone good or not? I think sensor camera from sony is better.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2015That was the same claim in the past.And it's generally the truth always
Samsung is using this in A8 based on your article.
