The quality of digital photos is constantly growing. For example, Samsung by the end of 2019 may release smartphones equipped with a 64-megapixel camera. In general, the company's developers have prepared two proprietary innovative matrixes that work on the most advanced Samsung technologies. The ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 sensors (an updated version of last year’s ISOCELL Bright GM1) have a pixel size of 0.8 microns.
Using Tetracell pixel fusion technology,64 megapixel matrix ISOCELL Bright GW1 can operate in two modes. The first mode is provided for normal lighting, resulting in photos of 64 megapixels. The second mode works in low light conditions and produces a snapshot in 16 megapixel resolution.
64 megapixel sensor supports widedynamic range up to 100 dB in real time, which allows you to get as close as possible to the dynamic range of the human eye, which is 120 dB. The sensor also works with a dual light-to-electrical conversion system that corresponds to ambient light (DCG) and high-speed phase-detection autofocus (Super PD) technology. High-speed shooting is also available in Full HD resolution at 480 frames per second.
48 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM2 matrixuses Tetracell, DCG and Super PD technologies. With low light, the sensor produces photos in a resolution of 12 megapixels. GM2 can also descramble the color filter in good light, which the GM1 matrix does not.
The serial production of matrices ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 is scheduled for the second half of 2019, and the first smartphones equipped with them will be presented by the end of the year.
