The company claims that the new camera sensor provided more high screen space to flagship smartphones even without compromising the high- quality images. The ultra slim sensor from Samsung comes with a 0.8μm-pixel ISOCELL Slim 3T2 delivers 20-megapixel (Mp) sensor for both front and rear panel in current flagship mid- range smartphones.

Jinhyun Kwon, VP System LSI sensor marketing at Samsung Electronics stated, “The ISOCELL Slim 3T2 is our smallest and most versatile 20Mp image sensor that helps mobile device manufacturers bring differentiated consumer value not only in camera performance but also in features including hardware design.” By adding that, “As the demand for advanced imaging capabilities in mobile devices continues to grow, we will keep pushing the limits in image sensor technologies for richer user experiences.”
According to Samsung, the company has developed the ISOCELL Slim 3T2 sensor specifically for the punch hole or Infinity-O displays that can be used either for the rear or front camera. While the sensor will be based on a standard RGB color filter array instead of Tetracell.
