Samsung Launches 50MP image sensor with 8K Video Recording for Smartphones
South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics on Tuesday introduced ISOCELL GN1, a new 50MP image sensor with large 1.2μm-sized pixels.
For premium video quality, the image sensor supports video recording at up to 8K resolution at 30 frames-per-second (fps).
According to the company, the GN1 brings image sensor performance to a new level with a combination of elevated light photos and DSLR-level auto-focus speeds, optimized for more dynamic picture-taking experiences.
The GN1 brings auto-focusing with 100 million phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF) agents. Samsung’s Dual Pixel technology places side-by-side within a single pixel that can receive light from different angles for phase detection.
With all of the sensor’s active pixels working as auto-focusing agents, the GN1 aims to detect and focus onto a desired still or moving object from every corner in an instant, even in low light conditions.
