Samsung outs the first smartphone image sensor with 1.0μm pixels

Samsung logoSamsung took the wraps off the industry’s first 16MP image sensor for mobile devices with 1.0μm pixels. Sporting the model number S5K3P3, the component has already entered mass production.

Thanks to its smaller pixels, Samsung has reduced the height of the ISOCELL sensor by 20% in comparison to the currently utilized 16MP solutions with 1.12μm pixels. With z-height below 5mm, the newcomer will allow hardware designers to create devices with minimal camera protrusion.

It is important to note that Samsung has achieved the size reduction of the new sensor without compromising on its image quality. The latter is said to be on par with the already stellar results produced by the current 16MP sensors used by the manufacturer.

Samsung S5K3P3 is already made available to device manufacturers. We won’t be surprised if the sensor gets featured in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
