Samsung Electronics has introduced its smallest high resolution image sensor, the Isocell Slim 3T2. It’s approximately 5.1 millimeters diagonally, and it delivers 20 megapixel resolution for both front and back cameras in today’s mid-range smartphones.

“The Isocell Slim 3T2 is our smallest and most versatile 20Mp image sensor that helps mobile device manufacturers bring differentiated consumer value not only in camera performance but also in features including hardware design,” said Jinhyun Kwon at Samsung Electronics. “As the demand for advanced imaging capabilities in mobile devices continues to grow, we will keep pushing the limits in image sensor technologies for richer user experiences.”

The Samsung ISOCELL Slim 3T2 is expected to be in mass production in the first quarter of this year.
