Samsung recently announced the highest ever resolution for smartphones. The company expands its 0.8μm image sensor lineup with 64 MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 and 48 MP ISOCELL Bright GM2 that allow vibrant ultra-high resolution mobile photography.
For the competition, there is Sony’s IMX586 sensor which can be found with OEMs like Xiaomi (Redmi Note 7 Pro) and Honor (View20). Now, Samsung is stepping up the camera game with its new ISOCELL Bright GW1 image sensor that brings 64-megapixel resolution.
Samsung claims its new sensor delivers brighter images in low-light conditions and richer details in brighter settings. It also supports real-time HDR of up to 100-decibels for more detailed colors.
GW1 is equipped with a Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) that converts the received light into an electric signal according to the illumination of the environment. This allows the sensor to optimize its full well capacity (FWC), utilizing the collected light more efficiently especially in bright environments,” Samsung said on its website. The built-in Super PD allows sharper results, better PDAF, and full HD video recording at 480fps.
Samsung has also updated 48 MP ISOCELL Bright GM2 which has now embraced the Tetra cell technology for better low-light photos. The sensor also has Super PD and improved PDAF performance. Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 are currently sampling and are expected to be in mass production in the second half of this year.
