South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics introduced its new 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN1 image sensor to the public, which has a pixel size of 1.2 micrometers.
This is the first Samsung device to combine Tetracell and Dual Pixel technologies, something that allows the user to capture sharp, high-resolution images even in low-light conditions. In addition, it offers a faster focus.
In particular, with technology Dual PixelEach pixel has two photodiodes that receive light from different angles, while the sensor detects and focuses on the object – even in motion. For its part, an algorithm collects the light information from both photodiodes and reproduces an image resolution of up to 100 megapixels.
Regarding technology TetracellIt is capable of linking four-pixel signals to double the pixel size to 2.4 microns, something that allows you to “quadruple the sensitivity to light” and take “brighter” and 12.5 megapixel photos.
The new chip also incorporates the intelligent Smart-ISO system, which selects the optimal ISO and HDR in real time.
