Samsung Elevates Mobile Phone Picture Quality
with Dual Pixel Technology in its Newest Image Sensor
Karachi: March 28, 2016 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced its newest 12 megapixel (Mp) image sensor for smartphones, which will elevate the quality of mobile phone pictures. Already in mass production, this 1.4μm-pixel-based image sensor is equipped with Dual Pixel technology that has been reserved for DSLR cameras. The technology enables rapid auto-focus for fast photo shooting while producing premium image quality on mobile devices, even in low light situations.
“With 12 million pixels working as a phase detection auto-focus (PDAF) agent, the new image sensor brings professional auto-focusing performance to a mobile device,” said Ben K. Hur, Vice President of Marketing, System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics. “Consumers will be able to capture their daily events and precious moments instantly on a smartphone as the moments unfold, regardless of lighting conditions.”
Samsung’s new image sensor with Dual Pixel technology employs two photodiodes located on the left and right halves of a pixel, while a conventional image sensor dedicates less than five percent of its pixels, with one photodiode each that converts light particles into measurable photocurrent for phase detection. As each and every pixel of the Dual Pixel image sensor is capable of detecting phase differences of perceived light, significantly faster auto-focus has become possible. With such groundbreaking improvements, the image sensor ensures clear and sharp images especially for moving objects even in poor lighting conditions.
The image sensor has also adopted Samsung’s ISOCELL technology, which isolates the photodiodes in each pixel with a physical wall to further reduce color cross talk, maximizing the image sensor’s performance.
For top-of-the-line performance while keeping the size to a minimum, the new image sensor is built with cutting-edge chip-stacking technology. The Dual Pixel image sensor stacks a 65 nanometer (nm) sensor and 28nm logic chip together to deliver outstanding photo-taking experiences in today’s sleek smartphones.

It offers the world’s first dual pixel sensor on a smartphone camera, using 100% of the pixel on the Dual Pixel sensor for phase detection. Each pixel has two photodiodes that capture light independently to enhance the detection even in the dark. The camera also has the Motion Panorama, Hyperlapse video mode, Selfie flash and spotlight features.
The President of Samsung Pakistan & Afghanistan – Mr. J. H. Lee stated; “It is a delightful occasion for Samsung, as the new S7 series has already received an overwhelming response from the consumers, where a Free Samsung Gear VR is being given with every pre-order.
