Samsung Announces 200MP 0.64um Pixel Mobile Sensor

BusinessWireSamsung introduces the ISOCELL HP1, the industry’s first 200MP sensor with 0.64μm pixels. For low-light photography, the ISOCELL HP1 features a newly developed ChameleonCell technology, a pixel-binning that uses a two-by-two, four-by-four or full pixel layout depending on the environment. In a low-lit environment, the HP1 transforms into a 12.5MP image sensor with large 2.56μm pixels by merging 16 neighboring pixels. In bright outdoor environments, the sensor’s 200MP can capture high-definition photos on mobile devices.

The ISOCELL HP1 can take 8K videos at 30 fps with minimum loss in FoV. The HP1 merges four neighboring pixels to bring the resolution down to 50MP or 8,192 x 6,144 to take 8K (7,680 x 4,320) videos without the need to crop or scale down the full image resolution.

Samples of ISOCELL HP1 are currently available.

  1. Too bad these modern sensors are not generally available - I have a feeling that we are back in the era of up-speccing products (VGA webcams with CIF sensors and upscale in drivers..). The sensor has 200M pixels, but you are not able to even read them out as some undisclosed computational magic will always happen.

    Manufacturers are taking a lot of care to make impossible any independent / 3rd party evaluation and comparison of true performance. Because if the result is not in control of the marketing BS, they would say - you use it wrong.

    Almost every producer got this wrong - as the best product is not the one with highest MP, its the one with a transparent and open specs. But most importantly, one you can buy and use.

    Stop producing waste over and over - and make Products with a capital P.
