Samsung's new BRITECELL camera is perfect for low light photos

Samsung unveils its new BRITECELL camera, which excels in taking photos in dark conditions

Samsung has just unveiled its new 'BRITECELL' camera at its investor conference in South Korea, a new camera that has impressive low light capabilities.


The way Samsung achieves this is by reaching brighter, sharper results by removing the traditional Bayer filter layout that is used in most smartphone cameras. The Bayer filter turns pixels green, blocking light from reaching the sensor, but the new BRITECELL camera from Samsung trades the green pixels for white ones, which allows for additional light to reach the lens.

Samsung's new BRITECELL camera is also 17% thinner than others on the market, so we could see the protruding cameras from the back of smartphones come to an end.
