If you assume that the camera of the smartphone will have a ceiling of 108-megapixel hardware development, you are wrong. Samsung has unveiled two new camera sensors for smartphones, one a 50-megapixel GN5 sensor and the other a 200-megapixel sensor. Yes, 200 megapixel sensor for smartphone camera! And it’s packed with clever bits to get the most out of your phone.
The 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP1 sensor uses state-of-the-art pixel binning technology to capture details and light in challenging situations. In fact, Samsung says the sensor can ensure 12.5-megapixel resolution images in low light. The 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN5 sensor gets all-directions dual-pixel Pro autofocusing technology.
Samsung has introduced the new 200MP, 50MP camera sensor
“For the ultimate low-light photography, ISOCELL HP1 is a completely new CamelionCell technology, a pixel-binding technology that uses two-by-two, four-by-four or full pixel formats depending on the environment. In low-light environments, the HP1 Neighbor combines 16 pixels into a 12.5MP image sensor with large 2.56μm pixels, ”Samsung said in a post.
“The newly formed 2.56μm pixels enable more light absorption and sensitivity, creating brighter and clearer images indoors or in the evening. In bright outdoor environments, the sensor can hold ultra-high-definition photography on 200 million pixel mobile devices, ”the company added.
The sensor can shoot 8K videos at 30 fps without image resolution resolution or downscaling, as the sensor can scale 50-megapixels to achieve 8K resolution.
For the 50 megapixel GN5 sensor, Samsung has packed a lot of innovative accessories. “The ISOCELL GN5 is the industry’s first 1.0μm image sensor that integrates dual pixel pro, an all-directional autofocusing technology that can significantly increase autofocusing capabilities. This technology places two-sided photodiodes, which are the smallest in the industry, can detect pattern changes in all directions horizontally or vertically within each 1.0μm pixel of the sensor. With one million phase-detecting multi-directional photodiodes across all areas of the sensor, the autofocusing of ISOCELL GN5 becomes instantaneous, enabling sharp images in bright or low-light environments, ”the post says.
“The image sensor uses pixel technology owned by Samsung, which for the first time in the industry applies Front Deep Trench Isolation (FDTI) to a dual pixel product. Despite the microscopic photodiode size, FDTI enables each photodiode to absorb and capture more light information, improving the full-strength capability (FWC) of photodiodes and reducing crossstones within pixels, ”Samsung explains.
