Samsung is trying with all its might to remove Sony from the throne of smartphone camera sensors industry recently, and this is confirmed by its announcement of the ISOCELL HP1 200-megapixel camera sensor – the first of its kind for smartphones. In addition to the announcement of the ISOCELL GN5 sensor, which is the first sensor to adopt the professional Dual Pixel Pro focus technology.
The Korean company has developed the ISOCELL HP1 sensor with a size of 0.64 µm per pixel, and based on the ChameleonCell technology based on “pixel-binning” technology that allows increasing the number of pixels even with a small sensor size. The company says that this sensor can shoot 8K video with unrivaled clarity at a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second, and it can also capture images with high-resolution details, even when cropping or resizing the image will continue in its high clarity due to the resolution captured.
The sensor, which contains 200 million pixels, captures the best pictures on phones under normal conditions, but in low-light conditions the sensor switches from 200 megapixels to 12.5 megapixels through a technology that merges all 16 adjacent pixels together that allows the introduction of lighting and obtaining accurate details in the addition Vulnerable and inside closed doors.
In the other sensor, the ISOCELL GN5, which comes with a resolution of 50 megapixels, Samsung provided a professional dual focus technology that allows the presence of two photodiodes instead of one in each of its 1.0μm pixels.
