Samsung 200MP ISOCELL HP1, 50MP ISOCELL GN2 mobile camera sensors revealed


Samsung’s mobile sensor brand, ISOCELL, released two new products recently.

First, there’s the Samsung 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor, which could possibly debut on the upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra.


It is a whopping 200-megapixel sensor which can output 12.5-megapixel and 50-megapixel images with a new pixel-binning technology the company calls ChamaleonCell.

The output resolution will depend on the light available. At night or in low-light scenarios, it will output 12.5-megapixel images using a 4-by-4 binning method. That results to an enormous 2.56μm individual pixels.


Obviously, in good lighting scenarios, it will deliver 50-megapixel image using a 2-by-2 binning for a 1.28μm output. You can also go with a full 200-megapixel output with 0.64μm pixels.

The ISOCELL HP1 can also record up to [email protected] videos.


Meanwhile, there’s also the Samsung ISOCELL 50-megapixel GN5 1.0μm sensor, which offers improved autofocusing accuracy and performance. It’s also the first to have Front Deep Trench Isolation technology on a Dual Pixel design.

It has Dual Pixel Pro, which is essentially an all-directional autofocusing technology.


Smartphones sporting both the Samsung ISOCELL HP1 and GN5 sensors are expected to arrive soon.
