Samsung will be launching a new camera sensor on 10 June. The Korean tech giant confirmed the news by posting a teaser on its Twitter account with the caption “ISOCELL for everyone. You deserve an awesome camera." Looking at it, the upcoming sensor might be made for lower-cost devices.

Earlier this year, the ISOCELL GN2 was introduced as a 50MP camera that has a big 1/1.12-inch sensor and also features large 1.4μm-sized pixels. It also came with technologies like Dual Pixel Pro, powerful staggered HDR, improved dynamic range through Smart ISO Pro, 4K slo-mo video recording at 120fps, and more that make it an attractive offering. This upcoming sensor is said to be built on the ISOCELL GN2 and bring some improvements as well.

Samsung has given an effort in bringing up its camera sensor segment in recent years. In 2019, the company launched the world's first 64MP camera for smartphones and proceeded to introduce an even larger 108MP sensor later that year. Although Samsung is still a distance away from what Sony has achieved in the smartphone camera sensor market, it is no doubt that the Korean company will catch up soon at this pace.
