Samsung just announced its latest camera sensor meant for smartphones and other mobile devices - the ISOCELL Slim GH1. It features 43.7 megapixel (7,968×5,480) resolution and the industry-first 0.7μm-sized pixels. The new sensor effectively outputs 10.9-megapixel images and is built in mind for slim full display devices allowing Samsung to expand the display size on future handsets without compromising image quality.
Being a smaller sensor, the ISOCELL SLIM GH1 brings a clever workaround in low light scenarios by merging four pixels together with a light sensitivity of 1.4μm pixels. Samsung’s new sensor also comes with pixel isolation which minimizes optical loss and keeps colors sharp and vivid.
There’s also EIS and Super PD phase-detection for fast autofocus and real-time HDR. On the video front, the new sensor is capable of recording 4K at 60fps without cropping or scaling down the image resolution.
Samsung says its plans to start mass production of the ISOCELL Slim GH1 by the end of this year.
