Samsung shares some info on its BRITECELL camera technology

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S7 flagship smartphone will arrive in about 2 months time and it will amaze the tech world once again for sure. While we still do not have a complete list of the tech specs of the new smartphone, there’s a really serious chance the new handset will arrive with a new camera technology, designed by Samsung, and called BRITECELL.

The Korean company has shared some more information on this new and interesting technology at the on-going Samsung Electronics 2015 Investors Forum. According to Samsung the new BRITECELL imaging technology improves dynamic range and performance in low-light conditions thanks to the use of smaller pixel sizes. The pixel size in the new technology has gone down from 1.12 µm to 1.0 µm, resulting in a 17 per cent reduction in module height and an increase in pixel density up to 20 megapixels. This achievement not only allows more pixels to be used but also increases the quantity of light that will enter the sensor in low-light conditions. In addition to this Samsung will drop green pixels in favor of white ones. Green pixels are achieved by using a filter so with the filter gone in white pixels even more light will reach the sensor. Dynamic range will be improved with a technology called Smart WDR, which will use multiple exposures. The sensor will also use phase detection autofocus for faster, more accurate locks.

All this sounds really interesting so we will see what we will get with the Galaxy S7 and let’s hope that starting with it we will finally have some great looking pictures taken in the dark.
