Samsung continues to push the boundaries of smartphone photography, as evidenced by its latest smartphone camera, which has done so once more this year. The ISOCELL HP1 camera sensor, which is the world’s first 200MP camera sensor with various advancements built-in, has been announced by the Company.
The ISOCELL HP1 has a native pixel size of 0.64 microns, which is quite small. Because of the company’s innovative ChameleonCell technology, it is now possible to draw complete pixels with 22 and 44 pixel binning. It has the ability to take photos up to 50MP with 22 binning and images up to 12.5MP with 44 binning. In terms of video capture, it is capable of taking 8K clips at a frame rate of 30 frames per second.
Additionally, Samsung has unveiled the ISOCELL GN5 for mid-range devices, which will be available in the coming months. It has a small 50MP sensor with better focusing capabilities, and it costs less than $100. It has a native pixel size of 1m and can capture 12.5MP photos with 2:2 binning in low light circumstances. It has a native pixel size of 1m. According to Samsung, the sensor is equipped with Front Deep Trench Isolation technology, which allows it to absorb as much light as possible while simultaneously eliminating graining.
The ISOCELL GN5 can capture 8k videos at 30 frames per second, just like the ISOCELL HP1. Despite the fact that Samsung has not specified which smartphones will be the first to receive these sensors, it is evident that the HP1 is intended for next-generation flagship phones, while the GN5 will be used in more cheap devices.
