The ISOCELL also features 20 percent wider chief ray angle (CRA) that reduces the height of the camera module.”
Smartphone cameras key issue for consumers
For many smartphones, cameras are one of the key features. The best-selling phones usually have high-quality cameras. The phones already come with great cameras but a Galaxy S5 featuring a 16MP camera with ISOCELL technology would give the company a much-needed boost.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) also suggested during the Analyst Day event is a future Galaxy S phone might feature a foldable screen display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution. Although they didn’t offer the details on the technology, the company did say foldable screens are possible once the technology barriers are solved. Such a phone isn’t likely to reach the public until after 2014.

In 2015, the South Korean tech giant could also launch Ultra High Definition 4K smartphones.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) is banking on the future of the Galaxy S5. If such technologies come to existence, the future could be in their hands.
