Forget about 48 MP smartphone camera: Samsung announces 64 MP mobile sensor

Samsung Announces New 64MP ISOCELL Camera Sensor for Smartphones

So in some months, 48 MP camera on the back of your mobile will not be the highest snapper as Samsung has unveiled 64MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 having a pixel size of 0.8μm.

Dubbed as ISOCELL Bright GW1, this new 0.8-micrometer (μm) pixel image sensor offers a stunning resolution of 64 megapixels. Samsung states that with Tetracell, the GW1 can produce bright 16MP images in low light environments and "highly detailed" 64MP photos in brighter settings.

Both the sensors support real-time HDR while adopting Samsung's tetra cell technology for low light photography. Bright GW1 Features Samsung's new sensor is also equipped with a so-called Dual Conversion Gain, or DCG, that converts received light into an electric signal according to the illumination of the environment.

Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 are now sampling and are expected to be in mass production in the second half of this year.

Currently, more and more smartphone cameras with a resolution of 48 megapixels are coming onto the market.

Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 sensors are now sampling and mass production to start in the second half of this year. Having more power, better screen, more autonomy or sound are still important aspects, but it is the photographic one where more differences are marked and can be what determines the purchase. With combined pixels, this sensor spits out 12MP photos. With the sensor, expect a different level of mobile photography. Regular image camera sensors are in the range of 60-decibels (dB). If Samsung decides to go with a 48MP sensor instead, it can use its own Bright GM2 sensor along with Sony's IMX586. The technology is expected to be mass produced by the second half of 2019 and would be experimented most probably on the Galaxy A series. As far as video is concerned, the GW1 sensor can record in 1080p (FHD) at 480fps.

"We want to do it faster", Park said, referring to Samsung's goal of becoming the global leader in the system semiconductor industry by 2030.
