Samsung introduces new sensors up to 108 MP for mobile

All four sensors specifications at a glance

To ensure that the new 0.7μm ISOCELL sensors are able to collect an ample amount of light despite the smaller pixel size, Samsung has incorporated its ISOCELL Plus and Smart ISO technologies in the sensors. The HM2 features Super PD technology for faster and more efficient phase detection autofocus.

Samsung has expanded its 0.7μm-Pixel ISOCELL Image Sensor range by announcing four new camera sensors for a range of mobile applications. The Korean company says the new tech should improve light sensitivity by up to 12% compared to the Isocell Plus tech now used on its sensors.

The new 108MP ISOCELL HM2 sensor is 15% smaller than its predecessors that used 0.8μm pixels.

The company says that the newest image sensors are up to 15-percent smaller than the 0.8μm sensors of the same resolution and reduce the height of the camera module by up to 10 percent. It can increase light sensitivity by up to 12% compared to the ISOCELL Plus.

It consists of 108MP ISOCELL HM2, 64MP ISOCELL GW3, 48MP ISOCELL GM5, and 32MP ISOCELL JD1.

After years-long rift, Perry and Swift finally reconciled in May last year when Perry sent Swift an olive wreath. The songstress took to Instagram to share the personalized present Taylor Swift sent over for Daisy Dove.

108MP ISOCELL HM2: It is a successor to the ISOCELL HMX and the ISOCELL HM1. Samsung is now sampling the ISOCELL GM5 and devices with this 48MP sensor may be released at a later stage. This will help OEMs to make newer cameras better and stiff into compact devices with smaller camera bumps. The reduced pixel size normally means that sensors may not gather as much light as their bigger cousins.

This 64MP image sensor is optimized for mainstream devices and comes with Tetracell and Smart-ISO technologies. GW3 is specialized in capturing moving images, combining resolution, brightness and gyroscope-based image stabilization technologies, such as Tetracell and Smart-ISO. In fact, users can expect a smaller camera bulge if the sensor is used for 5x periscope/folding zoom.

ISOCELL GM5 is a universal 48-megapixel (1 / 2.55) image sensor designed for use in telescopic or ultra-wide angle modules. For ultra-wide shots, the GM5 supports high-speed full-HD recording at 480fps.

Finally, the JD1 is indicated for front-facing pop-up cameras or with holes in the screen, as it is economical in space and still maintains high resolution. The company says staggered HDR "expedites image processing by sending a readout of long, medium, and short exposures of each row of pixels respectively to the mobile processor". The camera sits "comfortably" beneath the display, with the module height comparable to 16MP one micron pixel and 20MP 0.9 micron pixel cameras. Its first 0.7-micrometer-pixel sensor, which was the industry's first, debuted past year with 43.7 megapixels of resolution.

Samsung ISOCELL HM2, GW3, and JD1 are now in mass production, and GM5 samples are still undergoing testing. Stay tuned to TechNave.com for more latest tech news. They will get the improved ISOCELL 2.0 pixel separation technology. Due to its smaller pixel size, the GW3's optical size is almost identical to that of Samsung's 0.8μm 48MP sensor.
