Samsung has introduced a mobile camera with the highest resolution on the market

The South Korean company Samsung has introduced two new sensor with a pixel size of 0.8 micrometer: 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 and 48-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM2. Given that the new sensors should go into mass production in the second half of this year, there are big chances that the one on 64 MP, we may see the next flagship smartphone Galaxy Note 10.

As you’ve probably guessed, the new sensor ISOCELL Bright GW1 64 MP offers higher resolution than any other sensor on the market right now, and so it is not surprising that Samsung describes it as a module with “the highest resolution for mobile cameras”.

The second sensor 48 MP, not as interesting as his “big brother” and is simply an ideological continuation of last year’s ISOCELL Bright GM1 48 MP, but couple of innovations have him still there. Module ISOCELL Bright GM2 for a couple with ISOCELL Bright GW1, as their name implies, has proprietary technology ISOCELL Samsung Plus, which helps to stay on the matrix the maximum amount of light.

Also both modules are acquired by the technology Association of pixels called Tetracell, which aims to significantly increase the quality of images in low light conditions due to combining data from the four small pixels as if they were obtained from a single large pixel. Using this technology the resolution of images taken in conditions of lack of light is reduced four times (from 64 MP to 16 MP), but they will be very bright. In good light the resolution will remain original – 64 MP.

Since the module ISOCELL Bright GW1 64 MP is the flagship of its line of mobile cameras, Samsung added another technology – Remosaic. It works on the same principle as Tetracell, but steeper. Also, according to Samsung, this software enlisted the support of HDR 100 dB, which provides the photographs a more rich and natural shades. The dynamic range of the conventional sensor is about 60 dB, while the human eye, this value usually ranges around 120 dB.

As the 64-megapixel, a new 48-megapixel sensor also received a Super high performance PD AF with phase detection. In addition, ISOCELL Bright GW1 64 MP knows how to shoot slow motion video with a frequency of 480 frames per second. At the moment, both new modules are sampling devices in which they are installed and, as I said earlier, in the second half of this year, we are waiting to start their mass production.
