The dual camera smartphones with advanced low-light photos and fancy, defocused “bokeh” behind subjects are beautiful new and until now, have been reserved for high-end smartphones. Showing how quick things can move nowadays, however, Samsung has revealed a new “Isocell dual” camera module for low-cost mobile phones. With built-in software & algorithms, they especially allow 2 features: shoot in dim lights and blur backgrounds to create “bokeh” after you have taken a photo.
Isocell Dual tech can be set up in a some of the different configurations, either for 1 feature or the other. For low-light shot (LLS), Samsung marries its instructions with a set of two 8-megapixel sensors and uses 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel image sensor set in bokeh. Last year, according to a description, the modules could enable optical smartphone zooming, but Samsung may be keeping that trick for its own smartphones.
The company offers new modules to other smartphone makers, much as it does with its processors, memory and flash storage. Because this is a complete solution, OEMs can integrate dual cameras, which are without much difficult than time consumption and costly hardware and software optimization.
At the same time, it is possible to integrate the technology into its own products, much as it did with the mid-range J7+ (above) sold in Asia. It could take a while, but smartphones packing the tech from Samsung and others will likely begin rolling out sometime this year.
