Samsung’s Official Website Leaks Camera Specifications Of The Galaxy S9
In today’s day and age, smartphone launches are hardly met with a gasp of surprise. With so many accurate renders and leaks before the launch, smartphone makers barely have anything to announce on the stage that everyone doesn’t know already. But, sometimes, there are a few key details that aren’t the most obvious ones and get neglected. These details can be exciting and be something to write home about at the launch, however, Samsung appears to have let go of that opportunity.
On its official website, the company talks about its new ISOCELL camera sensors which are likely to be featured on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. One interesting hardware improvements mentioned is called ISOCELL Fast, which is a 3-stack fast readout sensor. According to Samsung, this technology allows cameras with this sensor to record video in 1920 x 1080 px resolution at an astonishing 480fps. The same sensor is also supposed to have a feature called Super PD, which Samsung hints will give smartphones faster autofocus speeds for its cameras.
Apart from this, the page also talks about another feature called ISOCELL Bright. Thos basically improves the low-light photography capabilities of the camera by combing four pixels into one large pixel. ISOCELL Dual, according to the company, is supposed to improve features in smartphones with dual sensors, including better light sensitivity, depth effects, and sharper brightness.
While there is no official word from the company regarding the new features that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ might have, the recent leak of a retail box of the Galaxy S9 might hint at something substantial. The leaked photo revealed that the smartphone could have a 12MP rear-facing camera with OIS and variable apertures along with a “Super Slow-mo” feature, which sounds a lot like what the ISOCELL Fast sensor is capable of.
Only yesterday, it was revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will feature a variable aperture mode. The report suggested that with a variable aperture of f/.5/ to f/2.4, the camera on the Galaxy S9 will be able to adjust aperture similar to a DSLR camera. The report also claimed that Samsung will be using the new Y-Octa display technology on the new flagship devices. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to have a 5.77 inch display and the Galaxy S9+ is expected to have a 6.22 inch display with the new flexible Y-Octa OLED technology.
