Samsung Electronics has released four new image sensors Samsung ISOCELL with a pixel size of 0.7-0.8 μm. We are talking about ISOCELL HM2 resolution 108 MP, ISOCELL GW3 resolution 64 MP, ISOCELL GM5 resolution 48 MP and ISOCELL JD1 resolution 32 MP.
The latest Samsung sensors with a pixel size of 0.7 μm are 15% smaller than 0.8 μm sensors of the same resolution, and the height of the camera module decreased by 10%. This frees up extra space inside the case or makes it thinner.
The new image sensors use advanced ISOCELL 2.0 technology, which increases light sensitivity by 12% compared to ISOCELL:
- The 108 megapixel ISOCELL HM2 sensor is about 15% more compact than its predecessors with a pixel size of 0.8 μm. The sensor has received a quick focus system Super PD, Nona-Binning technology to combine nine pixels into one, and support for three times the zoom without loss of quality;
- The 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW3 is virtually identical in size to the 48-megapixel 0.8 µm Samsung sensor. Tetracell and Smart-ISO technologies provide high image brightness and accurate color reproduction. It also features an electronic image stabilization system based on a gyro sensor. The sensor supports video recording up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second;
- The 48-megapixel ISOCELL GM5 is designed for use in telescopic or ultra-wide angle cameras. It supports 5x optical zoom. For ultra-wide shooting, the sensor supports Full HD recording at 480 frames per second.
The ISOCELL JD1 is the industry’s smallest 32 megapixel image sensor with a 1/3.14-inch optical format. It is designed for use in selfi cameras. Like the GM5, the JD1 is ISOCELL’s first sensor with HDR functionality.
ISOCELL HM2, GW3 and JD1 are already in mass production. The GM5 is in the testing phase.
