South Korean electronics giant Samsung on Tuesday announced the Launching of 2 Brand New 0.8-micrometre (micron) pixel image sensors – Specifically, the 48-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 and the 32-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GD1.
Having a reduced pixel size, Samsung intends to give smartphone vendors with greater design flexibility letting them pack in more detectors in the exact same space. The two new ISOCELL sensors have been declared remembering the trend of slender, bezel-less tablets. The newest GM1 and GD1 series detectors are based on Samsung’s pixel isolation technology known as ISOCELL Plus.
ISOCELL Plus is claimed to optimise functionality for smaller-dimension pixels, letting them fit into superior camera modules. To remember, Samsung introduced this ISOCELL Plus technology back in June this year to enhance low-light performance on mobile cameras. They also include proprietary Tetracell technology including the mixing of four pixels to you to increase overall light sensitivity. Adding to that, gyro-based EIS is also supported.
The latter 32-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GD1 includes a real-time HDR mode to provide more balanced color in low light and low contrast surroundings. This might be like what Apple introduced as Smart HDR with the latest iPhone models in 2018.
Pricing and availability details aren’t available yet, considering Samsung is expected to deliver these products as B2B (Business to Business) concentrated instead of direct to consumers.
“Demand for ultra-small, high-resolution picture sensors are growing as smartphones evolve to provide new and more exciting camera encounters for consumers,” said Ben K. Hur, Vice President, System LSI marketing, Samsung Electronics. “With the introduction of our cutting-edge 0.8μm-pixel Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 and GD1 picture sensors, we are dedicated to continue driving innovation in image sensor technologies.”
