Samsung has announced the IS OC Slim 3T2, a 20 MP camera sensor designed for a punch-hole display.
Punch hole display represents the next stage of the move to full full-screen smartphones, as smaller display cutouts make for less friction experience. But a small cutout means that the camera sensor is really small and it actually fits into the hole. Enter the solution to Samsung's problem.
"Holly-in Display" or & # 39; Ditch Design & # 39; To support smartphones with the latest display features like, front-facing image sensors need to reduce their size when being able to capture high-quality images. 1 / 3.4-inch 3T2 fits into a small module creating more space for the snegley displays, "the South Korean company noted in a press release.
More than just a small sensor?
Samsung is getting a signal from its GM1 48MP camera sensor using the same 0.8 micron pixel size on a 20 MP sensor. And like the 48 MP shooter, the manufacturer is using pixel-binging to get the most out of the sensor. This process essentially connects data from four adjacent pixels into one pixel, which gives an overview of the quality of the resolution. In fact, Samsung says that the phone takes a pixel-band photo that is equivalent to a 5 MP 1.6 micron pixel sensor.
We think that the company takes a Pixel-Benning approach, because it feels like a recipe for 20 mp camera disappointing low-light results with small pixels.
Samsung has also said that this sensor can be used for telephoto rear cameras, claiming that it can maintain "60 percent more effective resolution at 10x digital zoom" than the same size of 13 MP sensors. Low-light display is a different story, and one would believe that traditional 13MP telephoto cameras are still a better option with this sensor.
The Korean brand says that Iskal Slim 3T2 is in large production during the first quarter of the year. So you should not wait too long to see the phone with this technology.
Can we see it on Galaxy S10? We have certainly seen industry trends in implementing pixel-binging at high-resolution cameras and / or the front. However, Samsung specifically mentions that the sensor has been created for "today's most attractive mid-range smartphones".
