Samsung introduces industry-first 64MP smartphone camera sensor

Samsung Announces New 64MP ISOCELL Camera Sensor for Smartphones

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

Samsung has introduced two new 0.8-μm image sensors for use in upcoming smartphones.

Soon, the 48MP camera on the back of your handset won't be the highest resolution snapper found on a smartphone. That's partly due to the excellent imaging sensors Samsung uses in their devices.

The Galaxy Note 10, which is expected to launch in the second half of this year, could be the first smartphone to feature a 64MP camera. The 64 MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 and 48 MP ISOCELL Bright GM2 offer the "smallest pixel size now available in the market", according to Samsung.

Blast at popular Pakistani shrine kills at least five people, wounds 24
Over the past two years Lahore , Pakistan's second largest city, has been free of the kind of attacks that were once common. According to Shahbaz Gill, spokesperson for chief minister Punjab, the suicide bomber was 15-years-old.

Like Sony, Samsung relies on many small pixels that are only 0.8 micrometers in size. Under normal light, the camera will just capture 64-megapixel images. Tetracell is the technology which enables 4-in-1 pixel binning that merges four pixels into a single pixel which manages the pixel size appropriately in low light conditions.

Samsung also says that the GW1 supports real-time HDR (high dynamic range) of up to 100-decibels. Regular image camera sensors are in the range of 60-decibels (dB).

Both sensors have a 0.8μm pixel size, resulting in a 1/1.8-inch module. If these claims play out in practice, we could see a phone using the GW1 establish itself as the new dynamic range leader.

It is unclear how interested Kidd is in this type of assistant coaching role with an emphasis on player development. Cleveland advanced to the Finals on three occasions and captured the 2016 championship with Lue on the sidelines.

The sensor is equipped with a Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) that converts the received light into an electric signal. "This allows the sensor to optimize its full well capacity (FWC), utilizing the collected light more efficiently especially in bright environments", Samsung said on its website.

Samsung has also updated 48Mp ISOCELL Bright GM2 which has now embraced the Tetracell technology for better low-light photos and remosaic algorithm in brighter environment.

Other features of the sensor include Super PD (a high-performance phase detection autofocus technology) and full HD recording at 480fps for slow-motion videos.
