Samsung unveiled its 200-megapixel sensor in December 2021. A sensor that Samsung recently showed even a large image captured by it, but unfortunately no smartphone has been equipped with it yet to see the quality of work in a phone.
While looking forward to Waiting to see what this 200-megapixel sensor has in its pocket, the Korean company unveiled another 200-megapixel sensor called ISOCELL HP3, which is said to be smaller than the GN1 Pixel 6 Pro sensor.
Size The sensor of this product is 1.4 inches, while the 50-megapixel model GN1 used in the Pixel 6 Pro is 1.3 inches. The larger the size of a sensor, the better its light-absorbing performance, and the more detailed the captured images will be. The new product was unveiled at a time when the Korean company's original 200-megapixel HP1 sensor is 1.1 x 22 inches. Considered 1.51 inches.
Smaller size Samsung's 200-megapixel sensor also means smaller pixels. According to reports, the pixels of this sensor are only 0.56 microns in size, while the pixels of HP1 and GN1 are 0.64 and 1.2 microns in size, respectively.
Although many users want their phone cameras to have larger pixels to improve the lighting, especially in To display the night, Samsung preferred to design a sensor with small pixels. On the other hand, the technology added a four-in-one pixel composition to make the final output a 50-megapixel image with 1.12 micron pixels. The HP1, on the other hand, can combine 9 pixels in 1 to output a 12.5-megapixel image with 2.24-micron pixels. It remains to be seen whether this giant new sensor can deliver satisfactory results in practice.
However, Samsung has praised its new sensor, saying that it is about 20% less space than the HP1. Occupies. In this way, smartphone companies will be able to keep the size of their phones at the ideal level and not change.
Among the good features of this new sensor can be the Super QPD autofocus system sensor pixels), support for 8K video recording at 30fps and 4K at 120fps, HDR support and Smart-ISO Pro support.
The registration of this sensor has also been given to the handset manufacturers, and since their mass production will start later this year, we should probably see the release of products equipped with this new sensor early next year. Although it is not yet clear exactly when we will see the first product equipped with it.
If the rumors are true, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the first product to be equipped with a 200-megapixel sensor from the Korean company, but this sensor 200 megapixels will be HP1, not HP3. It looks like the HP3 is probably intended for use in other companies' phones.
It is also said that Samsung is building a very large 1-inch sensor to replace the GN2 with a size of 1/3 1.12 inches slow. But we do not know in what products this sensor is going to be used. Unfortunately, Samsung does not use good sensors in its products that have phones at the top of the DXOMARK table (such as the GN2 in Honor Magic 4 Ultimate) in its products. It remains to be seen whether he will change his plans for next year.
