Samsung has unveiled the 200-megapixel (MP) image sensor, the ISOCELL HP2 for the upcoming premium smartphones. The company’s upcoming Galaxy S23 series is anticipated to come equipped with the latest image sensor for full-well capacity and upgraded pixel technology for beautiful mobile images. Customers can now take use of even better resolutions in the most recent high-end smartphones without having to purchase larger camera bumps for their devices.

The 1/1.3 inch optical format of the ISOCELL HP2 contains 200 million 0.6-micrometer (m) pixels, a sensor size that is frequently found in 108 MP primary smartphone cameras. With Samsung’s cutting-edge Tetra pixel pixel-binning technology, the HP2 gives the camera more adaptability by simulating various pixel sizes to account for various lighting conditions. When under low-light conditions, the sensor changes into a 1.2 m 50 MP or 2.4 m 12.5 MP image sensor by tying four to sixteen nearby pixels together. The HP2 changes to 1.2 m 50MP mode for fuller 8K footage, roughly at 33MP, to reduce cropping and capture more of the scene. A broad field of vision and larger pixel size when shooting in 8K at 30 frames per second (fps) can result in clear cinematic videos.

According to the company with the HP2, Samsung’s unique Dual Vertical Transfer Gate (D-VTG) technology greatly reduces washed-out images from strongly light surroundings. In addition to this a voltage transfer gate is positioned at the bottom of each photodiode to move electrons from the pixels to the logic layer. By precisely adding a second transfer gate, D-VTG increases the pixel’s full-well capacity by more than 33%.

This technique is said to decrease overexposure and improve colour reproduction, especially in intense light settings because it stores more electrons and transmits signals efficiently.

The HP2’s auto-focusing is improved in low-light conditions by Super QPD, which enables the sensor to utilise all 200 million of its pixels as focusing agents. The new sensor is capable of quick auto-focusing, even in a dimly lit environment, because of the rich pattern data and the enormous number of reference points.

For the first time, Samsung is introducing the DSG function in 50MP mode, which applies two different conversion values to the analogue signal received at the pixel level for excellent HDR performance. In addition, the camera can capture 12.5MP still shots and 4K at 60fps HDR video thanks to Smart-ISO Pro, an HDR solution that combines various ISO readouts from a single exposure.

Availability

The new ISOCELL HP2 sensor is probably going to debut on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. The Galaxy S23 series is scheduled to take place on February 1 at the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event.
