Samsung Reaches 64 Megapixels With New Camera Sensor for Phones
Samsung has two new ultra-high-resolution image sensors for phone cameras, offering up to 64 megapixel resolution. The ISOCELL Bright GW1 operates in two modes: In bright light, it can produce a full 64-megapixel image. It can also utilize Tetracell pixel-merging (pixel binning) to combine four pixels into one, acting as 16-megapixel sensor with better low-light performance. The sensor also offers extended HDR and slow motion video up to full HD at 480 fps. A second offering, the ISOCELL Bright GM2, offers most of the same features in a 48-megapixel sensor (12 megapixel with pixel binning). The two sensor chips are currently sampling and are expected to be in mass production in the second half of this year.
