We will se what a nokia 9 with 5 camera setup will be and if this phone really gets this add-on.
In case of present phones even a Nikon for 100-150 eur makes hundreds times better photo than a best camera smartphone of 2017-2018.
"Instead, companies can choose between a 13MP + 5MP setup for a bokeh-shooting camera and an 8MP + 8MP for a low-light camera." Translation: a 13MP decent camera + 5MP telephoto almost useless except bokeh camera / 2x 8MP cameras color/monochrome which will just suck...better put a good cameras than 2 bad to average ones
Cassy O, 07 Feb 2018Lol my Note8 (Exynos) has the ISOCELL sensor. And please for all Sony fans, stop saying Sam... moreno. all note8 have sony sensors in them. if a note8 have a samsung sensor, it would result into a sh*tty quality picture...
Roxor17, 06 Feb 2018No mahn, All Samsung S8,S8+, Note 8 come with same Sony sensors, in both Exynos and Snapdragon... moreLol my Note8 (Exynos) has the ISOCELL sensor.
And please for all Sony fans, stop saying Samsung uses Sony's sensor just because Sony is better, but because limitations of manufacture.
Samsung always do some research for their own camera sensor, and Samsung always get exclusivity from Sony! So, Samsung's costumizing the sensor as same as their ISOCELL sensor and Sony who made it with exclusive model and it's only for Samsung, just like Apple has costumized the iPhone X's screen but Samsung has made it!
Samsung Mobile uses Samsung Semi's ISOCELL in their Galaxy falgship phones too, not just Sony's. They both have the same specs.
Samsung Mobile and Samsung Semi are two different divisions that falls under the same parent company, Samsung Electronics. The Samsung that this article is talking about is its Semiconductor division, not the Mobile division.

LG superfan, 06 Feb 2018How about a single cam with wide and normal modes?Front cam.of xz1c does it..
It crops to change FOV and simulates narrower lens
I really want to see a phone camera that focuses on astrophotography.
AleonN, 06 Feb 2018So Samsung sells camera modules to others, but uses Sony sensors in it's flagships?Sony sensors contains patented technologies which Samsung canÂ’t use to make itÂ’s own. So far sony has the best sensors so Samsung uses it until they finally make a new sensor which really fits for their flagships.
GSMA should do a poll on whether people want bokeh effect on their phones or low light capture. I would vote for low light. I like to have a picture as reminder and let my mind ponder the moment.
Not a fan of bokeh effect. I am interested in the low light capture. and would love to see wide angle lens too.

Snapdragon has ISOCELL. Samsung cant make sensors enough for all S and Note with exynos
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2018It depends on the region where it was sold. Usually, the Snapdragon version use the Sony's cam... moreNo mahn, All Samsung S8,S8+, Note 8 come with same Sony sensors, in both Exynos and Snapdragon variants, snapdragon variants are for just American states, where Qualcomm has the only modems and licenses for American Cdma networks, Samsung uses Sony sensors bcoz they are better, amd these new sensors are budget oriented, while S9+ would be coming with combo of Sony Imx* + Samsung Isocell* camera sensors, hope they would be best, with changeable aperture mode.
Now Samsung unveils "dual camera with bokeh effect", that sound familiar but I forget who is starting before.
