Samsung has revealed one of its upcoming star features: a 200 MP camera lens.
Called ISOCELL HP2 this sensor increases light gathering capacity by 33% and can combine 4 or 16 pixels into one.
For better photos
The sensor will use a technology of Samsung called Dual Vertical Transfer Gate (D-VTG). This essentially doubles the number of electrons available from each photodiode, “increasing the pixel’s full well capacity by more than 33%,” the company wrote.
That means a pixel can hold more charge before it saturates, which reduces ghosting and improves color reproduction in bright conditions.
Samsung points out that the new lens is capable of grouping pixels into virtual 2×2 pixels to capture photos of up to 50MP in low light under the technique of pixel binning. In addition, there is a second mode that allows pixel binning in 4×4 to take very good quality 12.5MP photos in low light conditions.
In videos, the technique could allow recording up to 8K at 30 FPS even at night, or being able to record at 4K at 120 FPS. At 1080, the frames per second can go up to 480.
Where will we see it?
For now, Samsung He has not indicated which will be his first team that will carry this lens, but it is possible that he will lead the camera module of the next Galaxy S23 Ultra which will be presented on February 1st.
Let us remember that the Galaxy S22 Ultra of samsung It “only” had a 108MP sensor, with the 200MP HP1 chip used in other devices like the Motorola 30 Edge Ultra and the xiaomi 12t pro.
