Samsung introduces 200Mp sensor with 50Mp and 12.5Mp binning for smartphones – tablets and phones – News

Samsung introduces the Isocell HP1 sensor for smartphones. The relatively large sensor has 200 million pixels at 0.64 micrometers and can also combine four or sixteen pixels for 50 mega-pixel or 12.5 mega-pixel images. Samsung calls it ChameleonCell.

Until now, Samsung sensors had a single binning mode for merging pixels. the new Isocell HP1 مستشعر Sensor Two, which can be used depending on lighting conditions. In low light, the sensor can combine 16 pixels of the sensor into a single pixel in the image, resulting in the equivalent of 2.56 micrometers. This results in 12.5 mega-pixel images. When there is a lot of light, the sensor can take 50-megapixel photos by combining four pixels or with a full 200-megapixel resolution.

The 2×2 binning method is also useful when shooting 8k videos. The sensor then has an effective resolution of 8192 x 6144 pixels. The videos can then be created at 8K resolution (7680 x 4320 pixels), without significant cropping or the need to lower the resolution. In theory, this provides better image quality when shooting in 8k. Sensor movies at 8K resolution at a maximum of 30fps and at 4K at 120fps.

With pixels of 0.64 μm and an optical size of 1 / 1.22 inch, the sensor dimensions are approximately 10.5 x 7.9 mm, which is suitable for an area of ​​u200bu200babout 82.5 mm², making it Samsung’s largest HD sensor. To date, the area of ​​​​the Isocell Bright HM3, which is included in the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, is about 70 mm².

The Isocell HP1 is not Samsung’s largest camera sensor. This is it D-Isocyl GN2, which was presented in February. This is a 1 / 1.12 “sensor with a resolution of 50 megapixels and a surface of about 98 mm². At the moment, this sensor is only present in Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra. Where the new Isocell HP1 smartphones will end up, so far unknown. Samsung uses Isocell sensors itself, but also supplies it to other manufacturers. According to Samsung Available now.

Samsung Isocell GN5 with better autofocus

Samsung is also introducing a new sensor in the GN series, again with a resolution of 50 megapixels. The Isocel GN5 Much smaller than GN2 and GN1, with an area of ​​about 50 mm². in advertising Samsung sets Especially the GN5’s autofocus capabilities.

The sensor works with Samsung’s Dual Pixel Pro autofocus and there are a million phase-detection points placed on the sensor that cover the entire surface. According to Samsung, the sensor can therefore focus quickly and accurately, even in low light. According to the manufacturer, it is also the first sensor with dual pixel autofocus Deep front trench insulation used. This is a technique to improve the amount of light received by the pixels and Crosstalk to decrease.

It is also not yet known which smartphones will receive the GN5 sensor. Like the HP1 sensor, this image sensor is immediately available to manufacturers.
