Samsung announces new image sensor to support 64-megapixel camera in smartphones

Samsung today announced two new image sensors, Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and ISOCELL Bright GM2. These image sensors will bring a new level of photography to smartphones.

Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 is a 0.8-micrometer (?m) pixel 64-megapixel (Mp) sensor. It is currently the industry’s highest resolution mobile image sensor. It can capture bright 16Mp images in low-light environments and 64Mp shots in brighter settings. It supports real-time high dynamic range (HDR) of up to 100-decibels (dB) to offer richer hues. This image sensor also comes with Super PD, a high-performance phase detection auto-focus technology, and supports full HD recording at 480 frames-per-second.

Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM2 is a 0.8-micrometer (?m) pixel 48Mp image sensor that features Tetracell technology in low-light environments, Super PD for fast autofocus and others.

Both these sensors will be available in mobile devices later this year.
