Samsung details new camera tech that we’ll likely see in the Galaxy S9

We’re very close to an official Galaxy S9 announcement, which means the rumor mill is running at 100% capacity to squeeze everything in before Samsung takes the wraps off their next phone. This time, though, the rumor about the Galaxy S9’s camera is coming straight from Samsung.

Samsung has uploaded a product page on their website detailing some new ISOCELL sensors that are almost guaranteed to make their way to the Galaxy S9. It’s a lot of fluff about how low light photos will be better and pictures will be sharper, but interestingly, Samsung mentions a three stack fast readout sensor that’s capable of capturing slow-motion video at high definition resolutions. That makes it a little more believable that we’ll see the Galaxy S9 shoot slow-mo 1080p video at hundreds of FPS.

This is also a product page for other companies to purchase camera sensors for Samsung, so there’s nothing specific to the Galaxy S9 here just yet, but it’s pretty rare for Samsung not to use their best, most cutting edge technology in their flagship products.

Regardless, the announcement is just around the corner, so we’ll know for sure soon enough.
