Samsung has introduced image sensor to adopt the smallest pixel size in the industry at 0.64μm name ISOCELL Slim JN1. However, the 50-megapixel 1/2.76″ sensor uses modern ISOCELL 2.0, Smart-ISO and Double Super PDAF technologies. And it comes with a with 0.64μm-sized pixels in a super-small package for much slimmer, ultra-high resolution cameras in mid-range to flagship smartphones with a 10% thinner camera.
Highlights of Samsung ISOCELL JN1 sensor
- ISOCELL 2.0 technology with added upgrade improve light sensitivity by around 16-percent.
- However, for low-light environments, the sensor provides Samsung’s four-to-one pixel binning technology, Tetrapixel. Which mix four adjacent 0.64μm-pixels into one big 1.28μm-pixel to quadruple light sensitivity for brighter 12.5Mp photographs. In bright lighting conditions, a software re-mosaic design reposition the pixels to maximize resolution, tap 50MP images with maximum details.
- It is compatible with existing 1/2.8-inch products. Allowing the sensor to be use for front-facing, ultra-wide or telephoto cameras, in addition to standard wide camera options.
- Moreover, smart-ISO technology exchange the conversion gain based on the environment’s radiance level. Uses Low ISO mode in bright settings to keep detail in the highlights. And High ISO in low-lit environments to dcrease readout noise and generate excellent low-light performance. Offers inter-scene HDR in mixed-light settings for optimum exposure levels derive from two separate readouts, from Low and High ISOs, that are merge to create a final image.
- Additionally, Double Super PD nearly doubles the density of autofocus pixels over the sensor from 1/32 to 1/16 delivering faster, more accurate autofocus. Even in dark environment or when you’re shooting an action-packed scene.
- Furthermore, it Supports up to 4K resolution video recording at 60 frames-per-second (fps
The Samsung ISOCELL JN1 is currently in mass production. And it is expect to arrive in phones in the second half of 2021.
