With the Galaxy S5 in 2014, Samsung started using a new CMOS sensor called ISOCELL and that proprietary sensor was designed to improve the sensor's response to light. Today at the Samsung Electronics 2015 Investor Forum, BRITECELL was officially announced as a new smartphone sensor technology.

Building up the ISOCELL sensor, this new BRITECELL sensor which will probably make it's debut on the upcoming Galaxy S7 will show better results in low light by the enhanced light sensitivity and improved color reproduction. The new BRITCELL sensor will be 1 micron big and the sensor itself will be physically thinner than similarly performing sensors.

Other goodies being included in Samsung's new BRITECELL sensor includes Samsung' WDR technology that improves on multi-exposure images and also a Phase Detection Auto Focus system. Overall, Samsung's new BRITECELL sensor might see the end of camera humps and the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note6 will be able to take on the LG G5 in terms of low light capabilities.
