Although the Barcelona MWC 2021 has been postponed until June, manufacturers and mobile brands have not lost the opportunity and the showcase that MWC Shanghai offers them to announce their proposals.
OPPO presented its new contactless wireless charging system and Samsung did the same with a new photographic sensor, the Samsung ISOCELL GN2.
ISOCELL GN2 promises images up to 100 Mpx
This new photographic sensor is an evolution of the ISOCELL GN1, which has also focused on improving focus and providing brighter images.
Like this one, it has 50 Mpx, although we can take pictures of smaller and smaller size. If we need it, we can increase the resolution up to 100 MP
On the other hand, using the Pixel Binning we can take pictures of 12.5 MP with better low light performance and more details. We went from pixels of 1.4 μm to pixels of 2.8 μm in size.
Improved energy consumption and concentration
Another aspect that has been improved in this sensor is the power consumption, especially when running HDR, an expensive technique in this regard.
How could it be otherwise, Samsung wanted to improve the focus on this sensor using a technology called Dual Pixel Pro. With it, two photodiodes are used for each pixel of the sensor, reaching 100 million photodiodes to focus.
Also, the green pixels are split differently, diagonally rather than horizontally, allowing me to measure focus vertically much more accurately, as seen in the video.
Likewise, the Smart ISO Pro improves the dynamic range of images, as Samsung also explains in a video.
This sensor is already in the production line and we will see it in future smartphones. It is said that the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra will be the model that makes its debut.
