If you assumed that a smartphone camera would have 108-megapixel hardware development limit, then you are wrong. Samsung has revealed two new camera sensors for the smartphone, one of which is a 50-megapixel GN5 sensor and the other a 200-megapixel sensor. Yes, a 200-megapixel sensor for smartphone cameras! And it’s packed with clever bits to make the most of your phone. Also Read – Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE WiFi Variant Launched in India: How to Get It for Less than Rs 40,000
The 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP1 sensor uses advanced levels of pixel binning techniques to capture detail and light in challenging conditions. In fact, Samsung says that the sensor can ensure photos with 12.5-megapixel resolution in low light. The 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN5 sensor gets all the Directional Dual Pixel Pro autofocusing technology.

“For ultimate low-light photography, the ISOCELL HP1 features a brand new Chameleon Cell technology, a pixel-binning technology that uses a two-by-two, four-by-four or full pixel layout depending on the environment. Low light In high-voltage environments, the HP1 converts to a 12.5MP image sensor with larger 2.56μm pixels by combining 16 neighboring pixels,” Samsung said in a post.

“The newly designed 2.56μm pixel is capable of greater light absorption and sensitivity, producing brighter and clearer photos indoors or at dusk. In bright outdoor environments, the sensor’s 200 million pixels capture ultra-high-definition photography on mobile devices can,” the company says.
The sensor can also shoot 8K video at 30 fps, without cropping or reducing image resolution, as the sensor can reduce it to 50-megapixels to achieve 8K resolution.
Samsung has packed a lot of new stuff as far as the 50-megapixel GN5 sensor is concerned. “The ISOCELL GN5 is the industry’s first 1.0μm image sensor to integrate Dual Pixel Pro, an all-directional autofocusing technology that can substantially enhance autofocusing capabilities. This technology houses two photodiodes, the largest in the industry.” small, to recognize pattern changes in all directions within every 1.0μm pixel of the sensor, either horizontally or vertically.With one million phase-detecting multi-directional photodiodes covering all areas of the sensor, the ISOCELL GN5 The autofocusing of the camera becomes instantaneous, which enables sharp images in bright or low-light environments,” Post says.
“The image sensor also utilizes Samsung’s proprietary Pixel technology, which applies Front Deep Trench Isolation (FDTI) to a dual-pixel product for the first time in the industry. Despite the microscopic photodiode size, FDTI enables each photodiode to absorb and hold more light information, improving the full-well capacity (FWC) of the photodiodes and reducing crosstalk within pixels,” Samsung explains. Huh.
