samsung More recently, it has introduced its first 200MP camera sensor which is called ISOCELL HP1. While we wait to see the launch of the first smartphone to offer a 200MP camera, Samsung is reportedly working on a 576MP camera sensor. Mobile brands have already introduced us to 108MP cameras through pixel binning technology. Samsung has further improved this technology thanks to the 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor and is now calling it chameleon cell. However, it remains to be seen how Samsung actually develops the 576MP camera.
As for the launch date, Samsung SVP and Head of Automotive Sensors Heichang Li made a presentation at the Semi Europe Summit 2021 and in one of his slides where he was talking about the roadmap for camera sensors, he said it will extend to 2025 as per a report. Mentioned 576MP. By gizchina. In other words, Samsung is planning to make a 576MP camera sensor by 2025. Interestingly, the slideshow indicated that after 2021, 108MP could become the standard resolution for most smartphones. .
Talking about the technology used in the 200MP ISOCELL HP1 image sensor, it has a new pixel-binning technology called Chameleon. It has a three-pixel layout: a two-by-two, a four-by-four or a full pixel layout, depending on the surrounding light. If you’re clicking photos in 200MP resolution, the individual pixel size is reduced to 0.64μm. This can be ideal for clicking photos in bright conditions. In low-light environments, the HP1 folds into a 12.5MP image sensor with large 2.56μm pixels by combining 16 neighboring pixels. The sensor can also click pictures in 50MP with a pixel size of 1.28μm.
The ISOCELL HP1 can capture 8K video at 30 frames-per-second (fps) with minimal field loss. The HP1 brings the resolution up to 50MP or 8,192 x 6,144 by merging four neighboring pixels, allowing 8K (7,680 x 4,320) videos to be captured without cropping or reducing the full image resolution.
