Samsung's new 50 megapixel sensor is designed for mid-range manufacturers

Samsung’s new 50 megapixel sensor is designed for mid-range manufacturers

agree For his promise from the beginning of the weekSamsung has announced a new photographic sensor called ISOCELL JN1. It’s an ultra-small 50-megapixel sensor, the smallest the company has produced to date, and it claims it will be priced to suit “any smartphone, from mid-range to flagship devices.”

Despite its small size, Samsung is a quality sensor that comes with all of the company’s most advanced technologies in the field. This includes the “Tetrapixel” ability, to compress the four pixels of a sensor into one pixel in a 12.5 megapixel photo that should be free of noise. ISOCELL 2.0 technology is responsible for preventing light leakage and hermetic pixel separation, as well as a particularly high sensitivity to photography in dark conditions. The sensor also supports real-time HDR photography, during which two exposures are taken at once, rather than two shots in a row.

Samsung is aiming for new technical improvements that will make the ISOCELL JN1 a faster and more accurate sensor than its predecessors. It supports 4K video capture at up to 60 frames per second and 1080P quality at up to 240 frames per second. High-speed photography will likely require a device with a powerful chipset as well, but the sensor itself supports these speeds.

Finally, Samsung has announced that the sensor has already entered mass production, so the first devices with ISOCELL JN1 are expected to hit the shelves in the coming months.
