Samsung fans should look forward to the Galaxy S9 camera, according to a new leak that provided more information on the upcoming smartphone that will be the successor of the Galaxy S8.
The Galaxy S9 camera is apparently using new technology by Samsung to improve its performance compared to the cameras of rival smartphones.
Samsung Accidentally Confirms New Galaxy S9 Camera Technology
An alleged Galaxy S9 box recently surfaced, revealing several details about Samsung's next flagship smartphone. One of the listed features was a "Super Speed" 12-MP dual pixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and variable apertures, with "Super Slow-mo" capabilities.
More information has now been revealed about the Galaxy S9 camera, and ironically, it came from Samsung itself. The company published a new page on its official website for a new ISOCELL camera sensor, which has never been used in a Samsung smartphone. It is very possible that the technology will be seen in the Galaxy S9, as shortly after SamMobile published a report regarding the webpage, Samsung took it down.
The removed webpage discussed a new 3-stack fast-read-out sensor, with the three layers enabling a more sophisticated camera that can record slow motion video at 480 frames per second, at a quality of full 1080p HD. The ISOCELL sensors also allow for a new Super Phase Detection autofocus feature that determines the distance of moving objects and adapts the lighting controls of the camera for faster autofocus speeds.
Samsung Galaxy S9 To Be Unveiled At MWC 2018
There is no definite confirmation that the ISOCELL technology will be seen in the Galaxy S9, but fortunately for excited Samsung fans, the wait will not last long.
Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh confirmed that the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus will be unveiled at this year's Mobile World Congress, which will run from Feb. 26 to March 1 in Barcelona, Spain.
With a February debut, it likely means that Samsung will roll out its next flagship smartphone sometime in March.
There are still no official details revealed for the Galaxy S9, but rumors claim that the smartphone will be powered by either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or Samsung's own Exynos 9810 processor.
Previous reports considered the Galaxy S9 as a "boring" update to its predecessor, as Samsung dropped the plan to launch the smartphone with thinner bezels plus a dual rear camera setup. The Galaxy S9 will look very similar to the Galaxy S8, but at the very least, the new device will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack.
