In transient: Samsung on Tuesday introduced a brand new cell picture sensor that guarantees improved low-light efficiency and DSLR-level auto-focus speeds to boost the picture-taking expertise.

ISOCELL GN1 is a 50-megapixel sensor with 1.2μm-sized pixels. The sensor leverages Samsung’s Dual Pixel expertise to position two photodiodes side-by-side inside a single pixel to obtain gentle from a number of angles for section detection. This leads to “best-in-class auto-focusing with 100 million phase detection auto-focus (PDAF) agents.”

By using Tetracell expertise which bins 4 pixel indicators into one, Samsung has successfully doubled the picture sensor’s pixel dimension to 2.4μm for brighter 12.5-megapixel images. The firm stated it’s also offering a software program algorithm that may take gentle data from every photodiode to provide pictures akin to 100 megapixels.

Software tips in pictures typically fall into the gimmick class so we’ll reserve judgement till attempting it out in individual.

Samsung stated the GN1 is moreover outfitted with a Smart-ISO that intelligently selects the optimum ISO in addition to real-time HDR that captures a scene in a number of exposures concurrently. The package deal can also be outfitted with a gyro-based digital picture stabilization system that helps to chop down on unintentional digital camera shake.

On the video facet, Sammy stated the sensor is able to recording at as much as 8K at 30 frames per second.

The ISOCELL GN1 is scheduled to enter mass manufacturing this month. No phrase but on when it’ll begin displaying up in client units.
