Samsung only recently adapted dual camera setups and apparently its a fan. The company wants to help others develop mid to entry-level phones quickly with an integrated solution it provides both the dual camera module and the necessary image processing algorithms.
For the first ISOCELL Dual outing, Samsung chose to focus on two popular uses of dual cameras refocusing (bokeh) and low-light shooting. Theres a catch though, there is no single module that can do both.
Instead, companies can choose between a 13MP + 5MP setup for a bokeh-shooting camera and an 8MP + 8MP for a low-light camera. The image processing is tuned specifically for each camera sensor for best results.
Samsungs total solution for ISOCELL Dual will make our customers product development process easier, allowing them to bring the most optimized dual camera features to a wider range of consumers, said Ben K. Hur, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics.
