In November past year, Samsung and Xiaomi, a Chinese electronics maker well known for its affordable electronic devices, opened a new era by releasing "Xiaomi Mi Note 10", the world's first commercial smartphone with a 108-megapixel image sensor created by Samsung. The sensor's electronic image stabilization (EIS) is powered by gyro-technology.
Samsung Begins Mass Production For New ISOCELL GN1 50MP Camera Sensor
With the development of different smartphones, creating sharp images is an important element for those who are well accustomed to visually grasping and cherishing special moments using their smartphones.
"With innovative pixel technologies, Samsung has been at the forefront of offering high-performance image sensors that closely cater to increasingly diversifying market needs". As Samsung explains in the statement, it is also the first sensor that combines Dual Pixel and Tetracell technology.
If that sensor also comes with "best in class" autofocus, all the better... The first is Samsung's Dual Pixel technology, where two light-converting photodiodes are packed into a single pixel: that means light can be captured from more angles, and should mean the subjects of your photos snap into focus sooner.More news: Apple introduces 2 Pride Edition sport bands for Apple Watch
The company says that it also provides a software algorithm that takes light information from each photodiode to produce image resolutions comparable to 100MP.
Samsung is using the pixel-binning technology to ensure the sensor is able to capture more light, and process them to take brighter photos. The groundbreaking technique bins four pixel signals into one, which effectively doubles the component's pixel size.More news: Michael Cohen: Prison release for ex-Trump lawyer over virus
On the other hand, some developers choose to focus on bright results in the low-light environment by developing bigger pixels. In order to obtain excellent video quality, the image sensor supports 8K / 30 frames (fps) to record video. According to reports, the Samsung ISOCELL GN1 is already in mass production.
