Samsung reveals 64MP, 48MP phone camera sensors
- Samsung’s latest 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 camera sensor has gone official. Alongside it, the popular 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor has also got a minor upgrade, and the new sensor is now called GM2.
- The new GW1 sensor uses Samsung’s Tetracell binding tech which merges four 16MP pixels into one. The sensor takes pixel-binned 16MP images in low light scenarios, while the full 64MP mode takes over in brighter scenes.
- The 64MP sensor has a pixel size of 0.8μm. Then, the ISOCELL GW1 also gets the latest generation for better autofocus, along with support for FHD videos at 480 fps.
- The 48MP GM2 is an incremental upgrade over the GM1. It is now claimed to utilise the collected light more efficiently. Then, its autofocus capability has also been made more efficient.
- Both these new camera sensors from Samsung are claimed to go in mass production during the second half of this year. We may see these coming on smartphones by the end of this year.
