Samsung introduces two new 0.8μm pixel CMOS sensors – the 64MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and 48Mp ISOCELL Bright GM2. With this, Samsung expands its 0.8μm image sensor lineup from existing 20MP to 64MP resolutions.

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, EVP of sensor business at Samsung Electronics.

With pixel-merging Tetracell technology and remosaic algorithm, GW1 can produce 16MP images in low-light environments and highly-detailed 64MP shots in brighter settings. GW1 supports real-time HDR of up to 100dB. In comparison, 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.

GW1 is equipped with a Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) that converts the received light into an electric signal according to the illumination of the environment. This allows the sensor to optimize its FWC. Sharper results can be delivered through Super PD, a high-performance phase detection auto-focus technology, and full HD recording at 480fps is supported.

ISOCELL Bright GM2 is a 48MP image sensor that also adopts Tetracell technology in low-light environments and a remosaic algorithm in well-lit settings. GM2, like GW1, adopts DCG as well for added performance and Super PD for fast autofocus.

Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 are currently sampling and are expected to be in mass production in the second half of this year.
