Samsung’s smartphone cameras, especially those found in their flagship smartphones, have been getting better and better. But one problem that most phones have is that they don’t operate in low-light conditions as well as we’d like.

Samsung’s going to be changing that, introducing a new BRITECELL camera for their phones at a conference in Korea. Samsung says that they’ve achieved impressive results yanking out the Bayer filter that most phone cams use, swapping it out for a slightly different sort of pixel sensor.

The result? Brighter photographs, even if the lighting conditions are less than ideal. Though it will still need some light to function – it’s not good enough to take photos in total darkness. Lastly, the BRITECELL cams will be thinner than traditional smartphone cameras, meaning that they might be getting rid of a few camera bumps as well.
