Samsung Electronics has introduced two new 0.8-micrometer (μm) pixel image sensors – the 64MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and a 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM2.
The 48MP sensor might not be new to everyone since most smartphone brands have already implemented this sensor on their flagship and mid-range devices.
The more interesting thing is the ISOCELL Bright GW1 which is a 64MP image sensor that features the highest resolution in Samsung’s 0.8μm-pixel image sensor lineup.
With pixel-merging Tetracell technology and remosaic algorithm, the GW1 can produce bright 16MP images in low-light environments and highly-detailed 64MP shots in brighter conditions.
It also supports real-time high dynamic range (HDR) of up to 100-decibels (dB) that provides richer hues compared to 60dB of conventional image sensors.
GW1 was also expected to produce sharper results through Super PD, a high-performance phase detection auto-focus technology, and full HD recording at 480fps for smooth cinematic slow-motion videos.
The ISOCELL Bright GM2 48MP sensor also adopts the Super Phase Detection Fast Auto-Focus, Tetracell technology in low-light environments, and a remosaic algorithm in well-lit conditions.
Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 are currently under development and are expected to be in mass production in the second half of this year.
