Samsung is stretching the boundaries again on pixel sizes with its most recent cell phone camera sensor. The Isocell JN1 fits 50 megapixels into a little 1/2.76-inch design for a pixel size of simply 0.64 micrometers. That is impressively more modest than the 0.7 micrometer pixels found on its 43.7-megapixel Isocell Slim GH1 sensor delivered back in 2019. “The new Isocell JN1 at 0.64μm will actually want to furnish tomorrow’s sleekest cell phones with super high goal portable photos,” said Samsung Electronics leader VP Duckhyun Chang.
The minuscule sensor size will be helpful for multi-camera arrangements, letting cell phone planners utilize the sensor for forward looking, super wide, fax or standard cameras, contingent upon the arrangement and goal required. It will likewise lessen camera module thicknesses by around 10%, Samsung said.
The issue with small pixels is that they can’t accumulate as much light as bigger pixels. In this way, for low light shooting, the sensor joins four pixels in one, boosting light by multiple times while lessening the sensor goal to 12.5 megapixels. What’s more, it utilizes Samsung’s new Isocell 2.0 tech that replaces metal hindrances between shading channels with a material that lessens light misfortune, boosting affectability up to 16 percent.
The new sensor additionally fuses Samsung’s “twofold super PD” (stage distinguish) self-adjust with multiple times the stage identify pixel thickness, improving AF execution in low-light circumstances. The new sensor additionally upholds 4K video at 60 fps or full HD at 240 fps. Samsung said the JN1 is presently in large scale manufacturing, so anticipate that it should show up in new cell phones soon.
