0.7μm ISOCELL Plus

Make your pictures come alive

Express yourself to the fullest with breathtaking photographs. The ISOCELL GW3 comes with Samsung’s innovative ISOCELL Plus technology, which brings color fidelity and light sensitivity in mobile photography to the next level. The technology does this by reducing optical loss and light reflection between pixels with specially designed materials. This allows the GW3 to produce color with superior accuracy and create dazzling images that are vibrant and filled with life.

Tetrapixel

No light, no problem

Capture sharp and bright images every time. With the ISOCELL GW3, you won’t need to second guess yourself when shooting in challenging lighting situations. Simply point your camera at the scene, press the shutter button, and Samsung’s Tetrapixel technology will help you do the rest. The technology automatically rearranges the pixels in the sensor depending on the amount of light available, so you can enjoy the clarity of smaller pixels in bright conditions and capture more light with bigger pixels when it’s dark.

Smart-ISO

Smart-ISO for every environment

Perfectly balance your photos in all conditions. You don’t need to be a photography expert to find the optimal ISO setting when shooting with ISOCELL GW3. The image sensor’s Smart-ISO technology automatically does that for you based on the amount of light in the scene. In bright settings, the technology selects low ISO mode for greater clarity while preventing oversaturation. When there’s not enough light, Smart-ISO switches to high ISO mode to brighten the image and express detail in dim areas.

Super PD

Focus on the action

Say goodbye to blurry shots. ISOCELL GW3 gives you the power to take sharp images in motion-packed situations as soon as you hit the shutter button. Similar to how the left and right eye work together, the image sensor’s Super PD feature compares phases detected at two different points to focus on the main subject. With faster, more accurate autofocus, you can document all your thrilling adventures just as you experienced them.

4K video with Gyro EIS

Shoot smooth 4K videos

Record smooth and shake-free 4K videos with ease. The ISOCELL GW3 is built to help you tell your stories with the dramatic quality of cinematic films. The image sensor supports 4K video with Gyro EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization), meaning you can record stable, high-definition videos with your smartphone even when you are travelling along a bumpy road. By freeing you from bulky tripods and physical stabilizers, the ISOCELL GW3 lets you stay in the moment while capturing incredible footage.
