Samsung introduced the 108MP ISOCELL HM3 image sensor with the Galaxy S20 series in 2020. While Samsung used the same sensor for its Galaxy S21 and S22 flagship series, it might be trying to increase the megapixel count with its 200MP ISOCELL HP1 image sensor with the Galaxy S23 series next year. Let’s have a look at the specifics.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Will Feature a 200MP Camera
Last year, Samsung introduced the ISOCELL HP1 image sensor, the world’s first 200MP image sensor for mobile devices. The 0.64 micron-sized pixels on the industry-first camera sensor allow 8K footage on mobile devices.
According to a recent report from Korea’s ETNews, the business is nearing the completion of the development process for the ISOCELL HP1 sensor. The development is also believed to be handled by Samsung Electronics and Samsung Electro-Mechanics divisions, with the duty being split in a 30-70 ratio.
According to the claim, the 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor will use in Samsung’s next-generation flagship Galaxy S23 series. It’s due out in 2023 and has the potential to redefine smartphone camera standards once again. It should have industry-leading camera performance and low-light imaging. Samsung has also discussed the 200MP sensor’s roadmap with its main partners ahead of its launch next year.
The 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor has a new pixel-binning technology dubbed ChameleonCell, which employs a two-by-two, four-by-four, or complete pixel layout for photos depending on the ambient illumination. It also combines 16 adjacent pixels to gather more light for the sensor, resulting in better low-light performance.
Furthermore, the sensor can record 8K movies at 30 frames per second with minimum loss of field of view. It can also reduce video resolutions to 50MP and capture 8K films without cropping or scaling down the whole picture quality by combining four surrounding pixels.
Other specifics about the Galaxy S23 versions for next year are yet unclear. As a result, we recommend that you stay tuned for further information and share your opinions on Samsung’s impending 200MP image sensor in the comments section below.
