Samsung debuts new 108MP, 64MP, 48MP, 32MP ISOCELL camera sensors

15 September 2020 0

Samsung is one of the biggest names in the smartphone camera sensor space. Its ISOCELL lineup of sensors is seen in various phones across different price points and now, it has been refreshed with the addition of new members. Samsung has announced the release of new 108MP, 64MP, 48MP, and 32MP ISOCELL camera sensors.

The official names for these sensors are 108 MP ISOCELL HM2, 64MP ISOCELL GW3, 48MP ISOCELL GM5, and 32MP ISOCELL JD1. All of these have been developed using Samsung's 0.7μm ISOCELL technology. It means these sensors are compact in size and would result in a smaller camera bump on phones. The first three camera sensors are meant for the rear camera module and the last one is for selfie camera modules.

Here are the key features of each of these sensors:

108MP ISOCELL HM2 sensor:

  • Third 108MP sensor by Samsung
  • About 15% smaller than 0.8μm sensors, camera height reduced by about 10%.
  • Super PD feature for faster and effective phase detection
  • 3x lossless zoom and nine-pixel binning technology

64MP ISOCELL GW3 sensor:

  • Size identical to the 48MP 0.8μm sensor
  • Tetracell and Smart-ISO technologies
  • Gyro-based EIS
  • Up to 4K video recording at 60fps

48MP ISOCELL GM5 sensor:

  • Meant for telescopic and wide-angle sensor purposes
  • Up to 5x optical zoom as a telescopic sensor
  • 1080p recording at 480fps as a wide-angle sensor
  • Staggered-HDR support

32MP ISOCELL JD1 sensor:

  • Smallest 32MP sensor with 1/3.14-inches (meant for selfie cameras)
  • Usable as punch-hole and pop-up selfie camera
  • Staggered-HDR support

As for the availability, there is likely to be some waiting time before we can start seeing smartphones featuring these cameras. The ISOCELL HM2, GW3, and JD1 are the sensors that have already undergone a mass production stage. The GM5 sensor is currently in the sampling stage with no words on when it will be mass-produced.
