Samsung announces new image sensor to support 64-megapixel camera in smartphones

Samsung announces new image sensor to support 64-megapixel camera in smartphones

Some other phones with a 48MP camera sensor come with Samsung's ISOCELL GM1. For example in low light it can use Samsung's pixel merging technology, called Tetracell, which combines four pixels to work as one, increasing low light capability. The software and the image processors will also have to be tweaked quite a bit to take advantage of the massive amounts of data that the new Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM2 image sensor will be capturing.

High-resolution camera sensors are becoming the craze in the smartphone market right now. These image sensors will bring a new level of photography to smartphones. Samsung now also wants to play in this league and has increased the resolution of the in-house camera sensor Isocell Bright GM2 to 48 megapixels.

"Meanwhile the 48 MP ISOCELL Bright GM2 sensor has the same feature set as the GW1 (Tetracell, re-mosaic, DCG, and Super PC), but uses a smaller 1/2" sensor, versus the much larger 1/1.72" GW1. The GW1 will also support real-time HDR up to 100 dB, compared to the more typical 60-80 dB range of contemporary smartphone shooters.

Michelle Obama has also congratulated the newest parents in Britain's royal family on the birth of their first child. In the U.S. , the former first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama also sent her and Barack's congratulations.

But while it may have an incredibly high pixel count, it still retains a 0.8μm pixel size, which is 0.2μm smaller than the Samsung S10 5G wide angle camera. The company has asserted that the dynamic range of a conventional image sensor is somewhere near 60dB.

The ISOCELL GW1 will also make use of Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) which in turn will make the sensor optimize its full well capacity (FWC) by collecting light more efficiently in well-lit conditions.

"Over the past few years, mobile phone cameras have become the main instrument for recording and sharing our everyday moments", says Samsung sensor EVP Yongin Park. The sensor also features Super PD, which is said to be a "high-performance" phase detection auto focus technology (PDAF), and it can record slow motion video in 1080p at 480fps.
