Making debut with Samsung Galaxy S5’s 16-mp shooter, ISOCELL is back with Alpha with phase-detection auto-focus and focal length of 4.80mm. ISOCELL technology became popular as it reduces the crosstalk and luminance signal when compared to conventional BSI sensors.
The size of sensor is still unknown, however, Samsung promises that Galaxy Alpha will produce sharper colors. It is being rumored that Samsung is using same sensor in Samsung Galaxy Note 4 adding the optical image stabilization module in the phablet. It is expected that more details about the sensor will be publicized once Note is released too in next couple of weeks.
