SAMSUNG ANNOUNCES 50 MEGAPIXEL CAMERA SENSOR

SAMSUNG HAS ANNOUNCED A NEW 50 MEGAPIXEL CAMERA SENSOR CALLED THE ISOCELL GN1 . IT’S SAMSUNG,S FIRST SENSOR TO INCLUDE BOTH DUAL-PIXEL AUTOFOCUS AND TETRACELL PIXEL- BINNING , WHICH THE COMPANY SAYS SHOULD OFFER A COMBINATION OF FAST PERFORMANCE AND GOOD LOW-LIGHT IMAGE QUALITY .

THE PIXEL SIZE IS 1.2 um , CLOSER TO WHAT YOU,D FIND ON A CONVENTIONAL PHONE CAMERA SENSOR THAN THE HIGH-RESOLUTION CHIPS THAT,VE BECOME INCREASINGLY POPULOR OVER THE PADT YEAR-PLUS . THE OBVIOUS COMPETITOR OS SONY,S NEW IMX689 SENSOR , FEATURED IN PHONES LIKE THE OPPO FIND X2 PRO, WHICH HAS 48 MEGAPIXEL AT 1.22 um . BY DEFAULT SAMSUNG ,S SENSOR WILL TAKE 12.5 – MEGAPIXEL PHOTOS WITH FOUR PIXELS BINNED INTO ONE .

FASTER , MORE ACCURATE FOCUS Faster AF With Dual – PD and 3 Stack Fast Sensor

WITH ADVANCED PDAF [ PHANSE DETECTING AUTO FOCUS ] , SUCH AS DUAL PIXEL AND SUPER PD SENSOR , ISOCELL FAST SENSORS IDENTIFY THE DISTANCE OF FAST-MOVING OBJECTS EVEN IN LOW LIGHT FOR FASTER AND ACCURATE AUTO FOCUSING . THE 3-STACK FRS [ FAST – READOUT SENSOR ] ENABLES HIGH-SPEED CAPTURES AT FULL HD VIDEOS .

THE ADDITION OF DUAL-PIXEL PHASE – DETECTION AUTOFOCUS IS NOTEWORTHY BECAUSE SAMSUNG HAS A RECENT HIGH PROFILE FAILYRE IN THAT AREA . THE GALAXY S20 ULTRA , WHICH USED A 108-MEGAPIXEL SENSOR WITHOUT DUAL-PIXEL TECH, SUFFERED FROM POOR AUTOFOCUS PERFORMANCE ; SAMSUNG SAID IT WOULD ISSUE A FIX , THOUGH WE HAVEN,T BEEN ABLE TO TEST FOR IMPROVEMENTS YET .

IN ANY CASE , THE COMBINATION OF HIGH RESOLUTION AND FAST AUTOFOCUS SPEED IS CLEARLY SAMSUNG,S PRIORITY WITH THE ISOCELL GN1 . THE COMPANY SAYS THE SENSOR ENTERED MASS PRODUCTION THIS MONTH , SO IT SHOULDN,T BE TOO LONG BEFORE IT SHOWS UP IN PHONES .
