The Samsung Galaxy S5 may look like your typical Samsung phone with a similar design to all of its existing smartphones, but there are actually quite a number of features to look forward to. First up, the S5 now has a water- and dust-proof design by default instead of a whole other variant like the Galaxy S4 Active. It is also equipped with a fingerprint and heart rate sensor, and in case you missed our camera samples, the 16MP on board now comes with several new features, and can capture much better images thanks to a new ISOCELL camera sensor. The South Korean company recently released a video describing just how the ISOCELL camera works and how it can provide for a much better picture quality than before.
The ISOCELL image sensor is a new technology by the company that will be making its debut in the Galaxy S5. The video is pretty technical but the gist of it is that the ISOCELL will allow users to capture much clearer, richer and sharper pictures even in low light conditions. The ISOCELL has a 30% decrease in crosstalk will improve image quality by reducing the noise and precisely capturing the photons of lights that reproduces the original color with sharpness and richness. It also has a 30% larger full well capacity, and a 20% wider chief ray angle compared to industry standard. Don’t understand the technical terms? Check out the video below for a quick demonstration.
The camera on the Galaxy S5 is also touted to have the “world’s fastest autofocus speed” of 0.3 seconds made possible by an on-board hybrid phase detection for autofocus, a technology used on modern DSLRs. There is also a Selective Focus mode that we’ve shown you before that may produce pictures that are pretty huge in size (around 18MB for one picture), but the result does look pretty darn good. Check them out along with the rest of the image samples taken with the Samsung Galaxy S5.
