According to recent reports, it seems that come 2014, we can look forward to Samsung phones featuring cameras with a 16MP sensor on board. Well as it turns out, not only will next year’s Galaxy S5 smartphone feature a 16MP camera, but it will be a 16MP camera with ISOCELL technology as well! For those unfamiliar, ISOCELL technology should allow the camera to be better at low-light photography, an area which the Nokia Lumia 1020 is dominating at the moment, and as far as Android competition is concerned, the LG G2 seems to be pretty decent as well. Assuming this is true, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 should prove to be a decent competitor in the field, unless of course Nokia and LG come up with even better technology that will trump them, but for Galaxy S fans who are a little disappointed by Samsung’s low-light photography, hopefully this will be able to make up for it.
ISOCELL technology will also allow for better color reproduction, sharpness, and richness, at least when compared to BSI technology which is currently featured in most smartphone cameras these days. At the same time while ISOCELL will be a welcome feature, the rumored lack of optical image stabilization will also need to be taken into account. Of course given that we’re still a long way from Samsung announcing or hinting at anything Galaxy S5-related, this should be taken with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully down the road more information about the Galaxy S5 will surface.
