Samsung outs 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor alongside 50MP GN5 sensor

Samsung today launched its newest flagship sensor, the 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor along with the 50MP GN5 sensor.

New high-end Samsung sensors for mobile devices!

The Samsung ISOCELL HP1 is the very first mobile image sensor to support 200MP. Samsung said that it is based on 0.64μm-sized pixels designed to bring "ultra-high" resolution images on handheld devices. The sensor size is 1/1.12-inch and that is big for smartphone camera sensors.

It uses the company's new ChameleonCell technology that uses a pixel-binning two-by-two, four-by-four, or full pixel layout "depending on the environment".

In low light, the new sensor transforms into a 12.5MP image sensor with large 2.56μm pixels by merging 16 neighboring pixels to make the sensor more capable of more light absorption and sensitivity to produce brighter and clearer photos indoors or in the dark. In bright outdoor environments, its 200-million pixels could capture "ultra-high-definition" photography on mobile devices.

The new sensor is also capable of taking 8K videos at 30fps with minimal loss in the field of view. Samsung said that the HP1 merges four neighboring pixels to bring the resolution down to 50MP or 8,192 x 6,144 to take 8K (7,680 x 4,320) videos without the need to crop or scale down the full image resolution.

On the other hand, the Samsung ISOCELL GN5 is the first in the industry with a 1.0μm image sensor to integrate Dual Pixel Pro all-directional autofocusing technology. Samsung claims that it has two photodiodes with each 1.0μm pixel of the sensor either horizontally or vertically to recognize the pattern changes in all directions.

It is a one million phase-detecting multi-directional photodiodes covering all areas of the sensor for instantaneous autofocus and can enable sharper images even in low light.

This sensor uses Samsung's proprietary pixel technology, which applies Front Deep Trench Isolation (FDTI) on a Dual Pixel product for the first time in the industry.

The new 200MP sensor is expected to be the primary camera of the upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra.
