Samsung Group has greatly enhanced the cameras that go along with their newly-revealed devices, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Consumers have been considering the camera as one of the main factors in choosing a mobile device, and OEMs like Samsung Group are constantly improving it to meet the photography needs of the users.
For its new flagship devices, Samsung Group has improved the usability and quality of the camera units, both front and back. The aim is to capture photos and make them appear as the human eye sees them, or at least as close to that as possible.
The front cameras have a CMOS image sensor 1.4 times bigger than their Samsung Group Galaxy predecessors, to capture clearer pictures, adapt to any media and keep the quality of shared images in high resolution. Both boast 5MP front cameras, which support wide-angle images, and an improved beauty mode for the perfect, easy-to-capture “selfie,” which can rival the main cameras of other existing smartphones.
Samsung Group’s S6 and S6 Edge come with F1.9 lenses, Optical Image Stabilization, as well as IR White Balance so it does not lose quality, even in dark areas. If the handset is caught in a shaking motion, the 16MP rear camera can still capture clear images without blur, with the function called OIS shake prevention.
The new Quick Launch feature lets the handsets seize excellent moments, when users can launch the camera app in just 0.7 seconds, simultaneously with other running apps. It only takes a double click on the center button from a locked screen, web browser or app page, for the camera to be ready.
The advanced fast-tracking Auto-Focus function makes the camera focus on any stationary or moving subject. Users can manually highlight a subject, blur the background, or change some focal areas, just like they can do in a DSLR camera unit. Capturing moments of a playful pet or a cute kid is easy and spontaneous. Samsung Group’s Galaxy S6 devices will deliver images and videos in clarity.
Samsung Group enhances the cameras of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge with another feature called High Dynamic Range, a powerful photographic tool, which allows the user to capture the most vibrant and rich colors. It can combine high and low-exposure images to get the perfect balance.
Though it took a while for HDR to be incorporated into video recordings because of some real-time lighting complexities, OEMs like Samsung Group were able to manage that already. The S6 and S6 Edge both feature a real-time HDR function in the front and rear cameras, so the user is able to take more brilliant images, regardless of the lighting of the environment.
Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge of Samsung Group push the limits of progression of technology in the smartphone camera. Unlike the Galaxy S5, the S6 has live-HDR both in the front and rear cameras, by default. It means the camera will automatically analyze the environment and its lighting to achieve the best capture, controlling and managing brightness and contrasts while recording video.
Samsung Group enhances cameras of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge and designed them to be meaningful and intelligent, to cater to the user’s needs. Both smartphones are identical in many ways, sporting 5.1-inch super AMOLED quad HD displays, octa-core chipsets, 3GB RAM and LTE category 6 support, and 300 mbps download. Samsung Group will globally launch their new flagship handsets on April 10.
