The most innovative way of seeing

Inspired by ISOCELL

The ISOCELL 3P9 is a 16MP image sensor that comes in Tetrapixel version for
brighter result and RGB Bayer pattern with WDR and PDAF for sharper and vivid result.

Different versions for different uses

The S5K3P9SP offers brighter image for selfie with Tetrapixel pattern. And the S5K3P9SX offers high resolution for greater details with RGB bayer pattern.
Different color filters

Capture the details

The S5K3P9SX built on RGB pattern supports fast and accurate autofocus with PDAF. And its smart WDR technology helps to capture details that may get lost due to mixed lighting.

Tetrapixel for brighter in low light, sharper in day light

The S5K3P9SP with Tetrapixel technology mimics big pixel to take brighter picture of 4MP while remosaic algorithm creates detailed 16MP high-resolution image.
