Samsung unveiled the Isocell HP1, the world’s first 200-megapixel mobile sensor, along with the Isocell GN5 sensor, the market’s first 50-megapixel sensor with Dual Pixel Pro autofocus technology.
HP1 Isocell has the highest image resolution in the history of Samsung Mobile Sensor Development Offers. Samsung’s new sensors with pixel binning technology can provide better output based on ambient light.
The HP1 isocell is a 1.22-inch sensor with a pixel size of 0.64 micrometers. ChameleonCell’s new ambient light technology offers two modes: 2×2 pixel combination or 4×4 pixel combination.
In 2-by-2 pixel binning mode, this new Samsung sensor can provide 50-megapixel images with 1.28 micrometer pixels. In 4-by-4 pixel combination mode, this new Samsung sensor offers 12.5-megapixel images with a pixel size of 2.65 micrometers.
The HP1 isocell also supports 8K video recording at 30 frames per second, as well as 4K video recording at 120 frames per second and a relatively wide field of view. Samsung has not commented on the autofocus technology used in this sensor.
The Isocell GN5 is another sensor introduced by the Koreans and is in fact the world’s first 50-megapixel mobile camera sensor equipped with Dual Pixel Pro autofocus technology for autofocus in all directions. The GN5 isocell is actually a 1.57-inch sensor with a pixel size of one micrometer that supports a 2.2-pixel pixel combination for 12.5-megapixel images in low light conditions. The sensor also uses FDTI technology to absorb as much light as possible per pixel and reduce noise. Samsung’s 50-megapixel sensor supports 8K video shooting at 30 frames per second, as well as 4K video recording at 120 frames per second.
