BusinessWire: Samsung introduces its smallest high-resolution image sensor, the ISOCELL Slim 3T2, said to be the industry’s most compact 20MP image sensor at 1/3.4-inches. The 0.8μm-pixel ISOCELL Slim 3T2 is aimed to both front and back cameras in mid-range smartphones. The 1/3.4-inch 3T2 fits into a tiny module making more space in ‘hole-in or notch display’ designs.

The ISOCELL Slim 3T2 is our smallest and most versatile 20Mp image sensor that helps mobile device manufacturers bring differentiated consumer value not only in camera performance but also in features including hardware design,” said Jinhyun Kwon, VP of System LSI sensor marketing at Samsung Electronics. “As the demand for advanced imaging capabilities in mobile devices continue to grow, we will keep pushing the limits in image sensor technologies for richer user experiences.

When applied in rear-facing multi-camera settings for telephoto solutions, the 3T2 adopts an RGB color filter array instead of Tetracell CFA. The small size of the image sensor also reduces the height of the tele-camera module by around 7% when compared to Samsung’s 1/3-inch 20MP sensor. Compared to a 13MP sensor with the same module height, the 20Mp 3T2 retains 60% higher effective resolution at 10x digital zoom.

The Samsung ISOCELL Slim 3T2 is expected to be in mass production in Q1 2019.
