Samsung Electronics has just introduced two new 0.8-micrometer (μm) pixel image sensors – the 64-megapixel (MP) Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM2. Thanks to pixel-merging Tetracell technology and remosaic algorithm, the GW1 can produce bright 16Mp images in low-light environments and detailed 64MP shots in brighter settings. To take pictures resembling the way the human eye perceives its surroundings in a mixed light environment, GW1 supports real-time high dynamic range (HDR) of up to 100-decibels (dB) that provides richer hues. The dynamic range of a conventional image sensor is at around 60dB, while that of the human eye is typically considered to be around 120dB. Read more for another picture and additional information.
“Over the past few years, mobile phone cameras have become the main instrument for recording and sharing our everyday moments. With more pixels and advanced pixel technologies, Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 will bring a new level of photography to today’s sleekest mobile devices that will enhance and help change the way we record our daily lives,” said Yongin Park, executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics.
