Isocell 2.0 Camera Tech

The tech giant Samsung first introduce its Samsung ISOCELL technology in 2013. This technology sets up a physical shielding layer between pixels. The technology reduces Crosstalk and increases the amount of light by 30% and 20% respectively ensuring good image quality. 

Now, the 2.0 era of the ISOCELL technology has come. Samsung is currently undergoing production of the ISOCELL 2.0. The ISOCELL series CMOS sensors cover a variety of product ranging 10mp to 100MP. The 108MP HM1 and HM2 sensor are usually used by many smartphones. 

On March 4th, the tech giant officially announced the ISOCELL 2.0 technology. This is a step further in the manufacturing of mobile CMOS sensor. Samsung also released a promotional video for ISOCELL 2.0 explaining what to expect.


The first technology, the ISOCELL 1.0 makes use of new materials to replace the metal shielding layer between the previous pixels. This material increases the amount of light reflection, improves the sensitivity of the sensor, and reduces the brightness loss and noise.

The addition of a new shielding layer between the color filters further improves the light reflectivity. It does this while reducing crosstalk between adjacent pixels of different color at the same time. The amount of light entering the edge pixels of the sensor can also be greatly increased with the ISOCELL 2.0 technology. 

According to gizchina, the traditional Bayer array is still in use by Samsung’s ISOCELL 2.0. Images released by the tech giant shows that the sensor using the new technology has a fine shooting effect in dark light, with a rich dynamic range, natural color and high resolution.
