Thanks to Samsung, smartphones will soon have 64MP cameras

The Samsung GW1 64MP camera sensor

We're positive Samsung will deliver a better camera because previous year, when an ISOCELL dual camera solution was released, it has totally improved the dual camera standard for budget to mid-range smartphones. We'll have to wait and see how these new sensors perform in practice, but it shows innovation in getting tiny sensors to give big performance shows no signs of letting up yet.

It uses 0.8 micron pixels similar to its 48-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM1 camera sensor.

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

Get ready for smartphones with even higher megapixel count as Samsung has announced its 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 and 48-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM2 sensors for ultra-high resolution mobile photography. Samsung now also wants to play in this league and has increased the resolution of the in-house camera sensor Isocell Bright GM2 to 48 megapixels. We can expect the sensor to arrive in devices, maybe next year.

The GW1 sensor is made up of 0.8 ┬Ám pixels, of which four can be combined into one large pixel in low light.

The name of the game when it comes to gargantuan smartphone camera sensors is pixel binning. In bright light condition, GW1 utilizes remosaic algorithm in order to deliver highly detailed 64MP output. With this functionality, Samsung claims that its sensor can capture hues closer to what the human eye can perceive compared to other conventional imaging modules. In addition to those two technologies, the ISOCELL Bright GW1 also features Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) for better performance and Super PD (Phase Detect) for fast autofocus. Regular image camera sensors are in the range of 60-decibels (dB).

The latest ISOCELL Bright GM2 also works on Tetracell technology in low-light environments and in well-lit conditions. This one also features Tetracell technology that will massively improve shots in low-light environments and a remosaic algorithm.

Samsung is sampling its ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 with customers and plans to mass produce them in the second half of the year.
