Samsung Galaxy S5 camera to sport 16MP ISOCELL sensor

New Samsung Galaxy S5 leaks have appeared with the upcoming handset tipped to benefit from a 16-megapixel rear-mounted camera with an ISOCELL sensor.

Offering a range of details on future product developments at its annual Analyst Day in Seoul, South Korea yesterday, Samsung has hinted that the Samsung Galaxy S5 camera will see its flagship phone line make the jump to a new 16-megapixel ISOCELL sensor.

Suggesting that the improved camera optics will be used as the “main sensor” for its leading smartphone offerings in 2014, the manufacturer has all but confirmed that the 16-megapixel snapper will be fitted to not only the Samsung Galaxy S5, but the larger, stylus-bragging Samsung Galaxy Note 4 too.

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 currently running a 13-megapixel snapper, the ISOCELL elements of the S5 camera will enable the phone to offer better low-light shooting, as well as improving colour reproduction and image sharpness.

Far from the only Samsung Galaxy S5 feature to be teased at the Samsung Analyst Day, yesterday it was suggested that the phone, already tipped for a Q1 2014 unveiling, will play host to a new 2560 x 1440 pixel display.

As well as an improved resolution, the WQHD panel will reportedly see a staggering 550 pixels-per-inch image density introduced, making the S5 a considerable step above its smartphone rivals in visual terms.

Other Samsung Galaxy S5 specs already confirmed include the move to an iPhone 5S mimicking 64-bit processor.

Responding to questions on the subject recently, Samsung’s CEO of Mobile, Shin Jong-Kyun stated: “Yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality.”
