“Samsung Galaxy A70S will be reportedly equipped with the ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor and launch in the second half of the year”
A few months ago, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A70 mid-range smartphone with a triple rear camera setup and a 32MP selfie snapper. Now, the Samsung is reportedly working on the successor to the handset, which will allegedly arrive as the Galaxy A70S. According to Korea-based ET News, citing industry sources, the Galaxy A70S will arrive as the world’s first smartphone to flaunt a 64-megapixel camera sensor.
The report says that the Galaxy A70 will flaunt Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GW1, which was introduced earlier this month. As of now, the highest resolution for a smartphone camera sensor is 48MP. This solution is available from both Samsung and Sony in the form of the GM1 and IMX586 sensors respectively.
Talking about Samsung’s new 64MP sensor, it boasts the highest resolution so far for a smartphone camera. This imaging solution utilises pixel-merging Tetracell technology and remosaic algorithm to produce 16MP photos in low-light environments and detailed 64MP pictures in brighter settings. There’s support for Super PD on board, which is the company’s high-performance phase detection autofocus tech. The sensor also boasts of real-time HDR of up to 100-decibels to produce richer hues. Another highlight of this camera tech is the capability of full-HD recording at 480 frames-per-second for smooth cinematic slow-mo videos.
The ET News report suggests that the Samsung Galaxy A70S with a 64MP camera sensor will be released at some point in the second half of this year. Unfortunately, the source hasn’t revealed any other details regarding the smartphone at the moment.
