Galaxy Note 10 may use Samsung’s latest 64-megapixel camera

Galaxy Note 10 may use Samsung’s latest 64-megapixel camera

That's where these sensors come in. Not only this, but the industry has gone a step ahead and introduced 48MP camera sensors to a lot of mid-range phones as well. Welcome Samsung's ISOCELL Bright GW1- the largest imaging sensor in the market that could find its way, perhaps into the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 due for release later this year. It even offers 64 megapixels, making it one of the most high-resolution camera sensors for smartphones today - even though other companies are already experimenting with sensors with 100 megapixels. The Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 is a 64MP image sensor which is now the highest resolution in the industry while the ISOCELL GM2 pushes 48MP resolution.

Like Sony, Samsung relies on many small pixels that are only 0.8 micrometers in size. In the previous years, such pixel sizes were impossible to achieve because of the deficit which they used to create in the low light, however, to tackle this problem, Samsung is deploying the 4-in-1 pixel binning.

Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 are now sampling and are expected to be in mass production in the second half of this year.

The GW1 features Tetracell technology, which merges four pixels into one for achieving high-quality photos across all lighting conditions. It can capture bright 16Mp images in low-light environments and 64Mp shots in brighter settings. According to the company, the dynamic range of a conventional image sensor is at around 60dB, while the human eye is typically considered to be around 120dB. If the claims by Samsung are correct, then any phone using the ISOCELL GW1, would be the new dynamic range leader in camera and imaging.

The sensors also feature Dual Conversion Gain, which allows the sensor to take in light information in bright conditions up to its saturation point. Additionally, Super Phase Detection allows for full HD recording at 40-frames-per-second (fps) to deliver "smooth cinematic slow-motion videos". The updated sensor also gets Tetracell technology in addition to a remosaic algorithm for well-lit environments. The sensors also have a few tricks up their sleeves.

The sensor is expected to enter the market in the second half of the year and it could make its way to a Samsung flagship smartphone.
