Samsung introduced smartphone’s camera sensors 200MP ISOCELL HP1 and 50MP ISOCELL GN5

Samsung was said to be working on a new 200-megapixel smartphone camera sensor earlier this year. Now, the South Korean behemoth has unveiled two new camera sensors.

The ISOCELL HP1 is the world’s first 200-megapixel picture sensor with a 0.64-micron pixel sensor, according to Samsung. The ISOCELL GN5 50-megapixel picture sensor is also the first to use all-directional focusing Dual Pixel Pro technology with two photodiodes in a single 1.0m pixel, according to the company.

The Samsung ISOCELL HP1 comes with ChameleonCell technology, which is a pixel-binning technology that may employ a two-by-two, four-by-four, or complete pixel layout depending on the surroundings. It can shoot 8K movies at 30 frames per second with the little field of view loss.

Four neighboring pixels of the HP1 are combined to reduce the resolution to 50MP to shoot 8K movies without having to cut or scale the entire picture resolution.

By combining 16 adjacent pixels in a low-light situation, the HP1 converts into a 12.5-megapixel image sensor with huge 2.56m pixels, capable of greater light absorption and sensitivity, as well as generating brighter and clearer images.

The sensor, on the other hand, can record ultra-high-definition images in the light outside situations.

The Samsung ISOCELL GN5 sensor, on the other hand, is the first 1.0m image sensor to have Dual Pixel Pro technology. It’s an all-directional autofocusing system that can significantly improve autofocusing performance.


To identify pattern changes in all directions, the technique puts two photodiodes in each 1.0m pixel of the sensor, either horizontally or vertically.

Samsung claims that autofocusing becomes instantaneous with one million phase-detecting multi-directional photodiodes covering all regions of the sensor.

It makes use of Samsung’s unique pixel technology, which for the first time in the industry adds Front Deep Trench Isolation (FDTI) to a Dual Pixel device.

FDTI allows each photodiode to absorb and store more light information, enhancing the photodiodes’ full-well capacity (FWC) and reducing crosstalk inside the pixel, despite their small size.

Samsung has begun delivering ISOCELL HP1 and ISOCELL GN5 sensors to smartphone makers. This suggests that new smartphones with these sensors will be available later this year or in early 2022.

It’s also possible that the new 200-megapixel camera sensor will be included in the next Galaxy S22-series.
