Samsung and Tecno working on RGBW camera sensor

Michail, 07 December 2021

Tecno Mobile held a webinar event yesterday where it unveiled that it’s working with Samsung to bring an RGBW camera sensor to its future phones. Samsung’s ISOCELL GWB was briefly detailed on stage and its main feature is the RGBW color filter.

The new 64MP sensor adds a white sub-pixel to the red, green and blue array which should result in improved light sensitivity and better performance in low light scenes. It will likely debut on a Tecno phone in 2022.

Sony, Huawei, vivo and Oppo have all experimented with RGBW sensors in the past and we’ve seen some impressive results from Huawei’s flagships in particular. Samsung is touting class-leading low light photos and boosted color accuracy from its new sensor. There have been rumors of Samsung working on a 50MP RGBW sensor for the Galaxy S22 series which is likely a different module forms the one we’ve seen here.

Wasnt it that the s22u will have a "improved" HM3 Sensor ? Thats now a pretty disruptive News ^^. And Huawei is using RBGY and not RGBW or am i wrong ? They used additional BW Sensors sometimes but i didnt see a particula advantage in...

It's good to jump the gun, but I didnt mention software. Plus, already tried and tested (and failed), CFAs won't cut it. They all have some serious issues the final results.
