Samsung introduces world's first 64MP mobile camera

The new 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 and the 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM2 sensors make their entry into Samsung's 0.8um image sensor line-up.

The 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 is using something called pixel-merging Tetracell technology and remosaic algorithm, in order to deliver bright 16MP images in low light environments and 64MP shots in brighter settings.

Samsung Electronics has launched 64-mp and 48mp image sensors for phones with a higher resolution than anything comparable on the market.

This light enhancing technology means a 64 megapixel sensor drops back to 16 megapixels when capturing at low light - because 64 divided by 4 is 16 - but can also work in daylight using an algorithm that produces the full 64 megapixel image. Both the seensors - GW1 and GM2 come with support for Super PD which is a high-performance phase detection auto-focus technology. Their existing top-of-the-line camera sensor is at 20 megapixels.

On Thursday, Samsung unveiled "ISOCELL Bright GW1", a 64-megapixel image sensor, and "ISOCELL Bright GM2", a 48-megapixel image sensor. We'll have to wait and see how these new sensors perform in practice, but it shows innovation in getting tiny sensors to give big performance shows no signs of letting up yet.

Still, while " The Last of the Starks " was more carefully paced, there was one rather peculiar goof that's got everyone talking. There may be a feud percolating between the Dragon Queen and the Onion Knight over a rogue coffee cup .

Moreover, both sensors feature the ISOCELL Plus technology, which improves over the previous-generation ISOCELL technology by utilizing a new material to separate the pixels.

It may take a while before manufacturers start implementing this sensor into their devices, so for now, 48MP will have to do. Samsung claims that its new sensor has an HDR of "up to 100 decibels" while the human eye is rated at 120dB. The image sensor also adopts Dual Conversion Gain and Super PD for fast autofocus performance.

These cameras will go to mass production in the second half of 2019, and we can expect phones and tablets with up to 64 MP camera sensor by the end of 2019.

Samsung isn't the just a solitary one giving a such a sensor as Sony likewise has one available, the Sony IMX586.
