Samsung has declared a 200-megapixel impression sensor supposed for smartphone cameras, by some length the maximum resolution telephone digital camera sensor at any time designed. The ISOCELL HP1 has .64μm pixels and can bin 16 of them at the moment for the equal of a 12.5-megapixel sensor with 2.56μm pixels.
Samsung calls the HP1’s pixel-binning technology “ChameleonCell.” The four-by-4 12.5-megapixel placing is intended for small-light use, but it can also seize total 200-megapixel resolution shots, or use a two-by-two binning technique for 50-megapixel photographs.
The two-by-two binning manner also lets the HP1 capture 8K movie. Samsung suggests it is capable of capturing 8K without the need of cropping, even though standard 8K (7,680 x 4,320) is considerably less than 50 megapixels.
Samsung is also introducing a new sensor termed the ISOCELL GN5. It’s a 50-megapixel sensor with 1.0μm pixels, and Samsung suggests it’s the very first 1.0μm-pixel sensor to combine its Dual Pixel Professional technologies. That basically makes it seem like a more compact model of the 1.4μm-pixel GN2, which was the most important cell phone digicam sensor available when it produced its debut on Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Extremely this yr.
Samsung hasn’t explained when possibly new sensor will be likely into mass output, but samples are currently accessible for cellular phone suppliers.
