– Samsung introduce two new sensors named ISOCELL HP1 and ISOCELL GN5.
– Samsung ISOCELL HP1 is the world first 200MP mobile camera sensor and uses ChameleonCell technology.
– Samsung ISOCELL GN5 is the world first 50MP mobile camera sensor equipped with Dual Pixel Pro omnidirectional autofocus technology.
Samsung ISOCELL HP1
Samsung unveils two new smartphone CMOS camera sensors, named ISOCELL HP1 and ISOCELL GN5, of which ISOCELL HP1 sensor is the industry’s first 200MP sensor with 0.64μm pixels, supports the ChameleonCell technology of up to 16 pixels in one. To pursue the low-light shooting effect, ISOCELL HP1 adopts the new ChameleonCell technology, as a pixel synthesis technology, it can adopt 4×4, 2×2 or full pixel mode according to the use environment. ISOCELL HP1 focuses on the small size and ultra-high pixels. In a bad light condition, ISOCELL HP1 transforms into a 12.5MP image sensor with 2.56μm large pixels by merging 16 adjacent pixels. The synthesized 2.56μm large pixels can absorb more light, have higher sensitivity, and can take bright and clear pictures indoors or in the evening. ISOCELL HP1 can shoot 8K video at 30 frames per second (fps). By merging 4 adjacent pixels, the resolution can be reduced to 50MP or 8192×6144 to shoot 8K (7680×4320) video without cropping or zooming out.
Samsung ISOCELL GN5
Samsung ISOCELL GN5 is the industry’s first sensor equipped with Dual Pixel Pro omnidirectional autofocus technology on a 1μm single-pixel length and width sensor. The GN5 sensor has 1 million multi-directional phase-detection points, covering the entire sensor so that the camera module equipped with this sensor can quickly and accurately complete the autofocus. The GN5 is also equipped with Samsung’s proprietary pixel technology. Samsung combines the front deep groove isolation technology and Dual Pixel technology into one so that each photosensitive point can obtain more light information. Improved the full well productivity of each pixel and reduced the light interference between pixels.
