We're all anxious to see ISOCELL cameras implemented in devices because they promise to introduce cameras that are better suited for taking photos and managing the amount of light that the image sensors capture. Instead of dealing with situations where light bounces on different pixels on the sensor and creates noise, or the grainy and unclear aspect of a photo, ISOCELLS promise to increase clarity by putting up barriers between pixels. The barriers work to establish boundaries for the light to travel and creates a better environment, so you end up with much better photos.
Samsung previously mentioned ISOCELL back in September, and the technology has the potential to be pretty impressive. The Galaxy S5 is slated to be Samsung's first smartphone utilizing ISOCELL, and it has the potential to introduce one of the biggest jumps in photo quality we've seen in a Galaxy S smartphone to date. Watch the video below that explains the way that ISOCELL CMOS works. There's no indication that the included images are from a smartphone (I'm betting that they aren't, but "Whoa!" if they are) but the video does a good good of trying to simplify the technical aspects of the architecture works.
