Cost-Effective Smartphone Cameras

Samsung's ISOCELL Dual Offers a Better Camera for a Lower Cost

— February 7, 2018 — Tech
Samsung's new ISOCELL Dual offers a dual-camera solution for budget phones. Dual camera designs are typically reserved for pricier smartphones, simply because the hardware generally costs twice as much. The increased cost also comes because of the need to optimize both pieces of hardware with the software used in the phone. This is the general norm for smartphone cameras, but Samsung is hoping to change this with the release of its ISOCELL Dual camera sensor.

The ISOCELL Dual is an entire camera module that contains both the necessary hardware and software to optimize smartphone cameras. This combination between hardware and software helps keep costs down and optimizes the camera in the lower cost hardware. The ISOCELL Dual is currently being sold to manufacturers as a complete camera module, and Samsung hopes that this technology will help lessen the gap between expensive and cost-effective phones.
