Samsung introduced ISOCELL HP1 and ISOCELL GN5 image sensors. The ISOCELL HP1 is equipped with a 200 megapixel 0.64 µm pixel image sensor and a new pixel combining technology called Chameleon Cell. ISOCELL GN5 is considered the first image sensor to use Dual Pixel Pro omnidirectional focusing technology with two photodiodes in one 1.0 micron pixel. It is an ultra-thin 1.0 micron 50-megapixel sensor for ultra-fast autofocusing. Samsung announces that Samsung ISOCELL HP1 and ISOCELL GN5 samples are available to suppliers.
Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor said become the first mobile sensor to support 200 megapixels. It is based on Samsung’s cutting-edge 0.64 micron pixels to deliver ultra-high resolution in a small smartphone body. The company says the ISOCELL HP1 can shoot 8K video at 30fps with minimal loss of field of view.
Samsung ISOCELL HP1 uses the all-new Chameleon Cell, a pixel-binning technology that uses a two-by-two, four-by-four, or full-pixel layout depending on the environment. In low light, the HP1 converts into a 12.5-megapixel image sensor with large 2.56-micron pixels by combining 16 adjacent pixels. The newly formed 2.56 micron pixel provides greater light absorption and sensitivity, allowing you to take brighter, clearer photos indoors or at night.
In bright outdoor conditions, the 200 million pixel sensor allows you to capture ultra-high definition photos with smartphones. Samsung ISOCELL HP1 combines four adjacent pixels to reduce the resolution to 50 megapixels or 8192×6144 pixels to shoot 8K (7680×4,320 pixels) video without having to crop or downscale the full image resolution.
Samsung’s ISOCELL GN5 sensor is considered the first 1.0-micron image sensor to integrate Dual Pixel Pro omnidirectional AF technology for ultra-fast autofocusing. The new Dual Pixel Pro technology places two photodiodes in each 1.0-micron sensor pixel horizontally or vertically to detect pattern changes in all directions. With one million multidirectional photodiodes with phase detection covering all areas of the sensor, ISOCELL GN5 autofocus is instantaneous, delivering clearer images in bright or dimly lit rooms.
In addition, Samsung says the image sensor also uses Samsung’s Front Deep Trench Isolation (FDTI) technology to allow each photodiode to absorb and retain more light information, improving the photodiode full screen capacitance (FWC) and reducing pixel crosstalk. …
We can expect these sensors to hit smartphones in late 2021 or early 2022. Samsung may also introduce the ISOCELL HP1 sensor on its flagship flagship Samsung Galaxy S22 series.
