Samsung reveals the first 0.7?m-pixel Mobile Image Sensor

Samsung ISOCELL Slim GH1

"After launching the industry's first image sensor with 1.0µm pixel in 2015, we have continuously innovated our technology by launching 64MP image sensor with 0.8µm pixel and 108MP image sensor." said Vice-President Park Yong-in of Samsung Electronics" S.LSI Business Department's Sensor Business Team. It features 43.7 megapixel (7,968×5,480) resolution and the industry-first 0.7μm-sized pixels. While in low-light environments, the sensor uses "pixel-merging Teracell technology that enables higher light sensitivity that is equivalent to a 1.4μm image sensor".

Samsung's image sensors have been all the rage this year: the company introduced the 0.8μm pixels on the 48MP and 64MP sensors and has been working hard on a new product in the meantime as well.

A Samsung official said that the new product has an unparalleled competitive edge.

Samsung Electronics is the world's biggest maker of memory chips and smartphones. In other words, "ISOCELL SLIM GH1" has 43.7 million 0.7µm pixels. Unless, of course, if it's created to go on the front of the devices.

Aside from Samsung's pixel-isolating technologies, the sensor also supports gyro-based EIS and phase detection auto-focus technology called Super PD. This smaller form factor will allow smartphone manufacturers to pack high-resolution cameras in sleek form factors. In simpler words, the sensor will combine multiple frames of the same scene at different exposures and merge them together to form a bright image, a process that is generally called pixel binning and is used in nearly every smartphone today. Samsung expects to be churning out the image sensor before 2019 comes to an end.

In terms of recording, the sensor can record up to 4K videos with 3840 X 2160 resolution. Dubbed as the Samsung ISOCELL Slim GH1, the sensor is claimed to offer an "extremely compact package". Using Tetracell technology, the GH1 is converted down to 3,984x2,740, a resolution that covers the 4K resolution. It can shoot up to 4K videos at 60 frames per second.
