Samsung had unveiled its first 200MP mobile camera sensor—ISOCELL HP1—earlier this month. The company has released a new video that explains all the crucial features of the new camera sensor in a simpler way. Alongside the ISOCELL HP1, the company also unveiled a new 50MP ISOCELL (GN5) camera.
The ISOCELL HP1 is a 1/1.22-inch camera sensor with a 200MP resolution and 0.64μm native pixel size. It supports 4-in-1 and 16-in-1 pixel binning for brighter and clearer images. The 4-in-1 pixel binning mode offers 50MP photos with 1.28µm pixel size, and the 16-in-1 pixel binning mode offers 12.5MP images with 2.65µm pixel size. The camera sensor features Double Super PD autofocus for reliable focusing.
Samsung’s new camera sensor can record 8K 30fps and 4K 120fps video recording. The 4K video recording mode offers a relatively wide field of view. The ISOCELL HP1 can capture full-frame still images at 7.5fps. It is also capable of capturing 10-bit images and supports RAW8, RAW10, and RAW12 image formats.
Other features include Smart-ISO Pro and Staggered HDR for lower noise and wider dynamic range. The Front Deep Trench Isolation (FDTI) feature reduces noise by improving photon absorption and reducing crosstalk between pixels.
The Galaxy S23 is rumored to feature a 200MP primary camera, but it is still unclear if it will use the ISOCELL HP1 or a newer sensor currently under development. An upcoming Xiaomi phone (probably the Xiaomi 12 Ultra) is expected to be the first smartphone to use the ISOCELL HP1 sensor.
