Samsung today introduced a total dual camera solution with ISOCELL Dual image sensors and proprietary software for two features - refocusing (bokeh) and low-light shooting (LLS).
Dual camera smartphones have two image sensors that capture different light information, enabling new features like refocusing and LLS. However, integrating dual cameras can be a difficult process for original equipment manufacturers (OEM), as it requires optimization between the OEMs and different vendors developing the sensors and algorithm software. Samsung says that the dual camera solution will simplify that process and enable mid- to entry-level mobile devices to take advantage of certain camera features.
Samsung offers both ISOCELL Dual sensor hardware and sensor-optimized algorithm software. The company is coupling its refocusing algorithm with a 13 megapixel (Mp) and 5Mp set of image sensors, and its LLS algorithm with a set of two 8Mp sensors.
