Super small!

Smallest pixel in the world?

It's so small!
It's so small!

Advanced semiconductor technology leader Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., recently introduced the ISOCELL 2.0 JN1, the industry's first 50MP image sensor with 0.64-micrometer-sized pixels. It is equipped with the latest pixel technologies like an improved ISOCELL 2.0, Smart-ISO, and Double Super PDAF which allows the new JN1 to capture better images even with the smallest 50MP sensor.

Samsung’s advanced pixel technologies have once again pushed boundaries with the utmost precision to develop an image sensor with the industry's smallest pixel size, yet with powerful performance. The new ISOCELL JN1 at 0.64μm will be able to equip tomorrow’s sleekest smartphones with ultra-high resolution mobile photographs, said Duckhyun Chang, executive vice president of the sensor business at Samsung Electronics. As we drive our commitment to innovation in pixel technologies, we will continue to bring a wide range of mobile image sensor offerings to the market.

Samsung claims that the new ISOCELL 2.0 technology was able to enhance and improve light sensitivity by 16 percent. In low light scenarios, the sensor uses Samsung's four-to-one pixel binning technology called Tetrapixel which merges four adjacent pixels into one larger pixel that quadruple light sensitivity for brighter 12.5MP photographs.

The sensor also improves dynamic range with the new Smart-ISO that uses low ISO mode in bright settings to retain detail in the highlights while the High-ISO in low-lit environments reduces readout noise and generates excellent low-light performance.

It also features the new Double Super PD which uses double the density of pixels used for Phase Detection which enables fast autofocus performance even in environments with fewer illumination levels.
