The camera sensor is likely to debut on a Tecno-branded smartphone in 2022, but Samsung could also make it available to other original equipment manufacturers.

The ISOCELL GWB camera sensor was unveiled at a webinar organised by Tecno on Monday. Samsung revealed during the event that the camera sensor used an improved colour filter pattern, including white pixels. The addition of white pixels in the sensors will help capture better images with more colour accuracy while also allowing for brighter results.

Earlier reports had tipped the Galaxy S22 Ultra to feature a 108-megapixel camera, similar to its predecessor, while the Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy S22 Plus could come with a 50-megapixel primary camera.
