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 8K@30fps 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.
