Samsung has announced a new picture sensor for cell phone cameras that it says has the littlest pixels in the business. The ISOCELL JN1 is a 50-megapixel sensor with a generally minuscule 1/2.76-inch design, which means its pixels are only 0.64μm in size. For examination, Samsung previously broke records in 2019 with the slightly bigger ISOCELL Slim GH1, another 50-megapixel sensor with 0.7μm pixels.
Regular camera astuteness says that more modest pixels, for the most part, bring about more regrettable picture quality with higher commotion, so for what reason is Samsung doing this? As per the organization, it’s about structure factor flexibility. The sensor’s more modest size implies it very well may be utilized in ultrawide or fax camera modules — which are trying to plan when the estimate is at a higher cost than expected — or as an approach to lessen the tallness of the essential camera knock.
Similarly, as with other high-goal camera sensors, the JN1 will utilize pixel-binning innovation that consolidates numerous pixels into one for higher light affectability. For this situation, Samsung says the sensor will catch 12.5-megapixel photographs with what might be compared to 1.28μm pixels. The organization is additionally asserting a 16 percent lift to light affectability with its ISOCELL 2.0 tech.
Unusually, Samsung even held a full-on live-streamed launch event for this sensor, which you can watch here:
