Samsung Unveils 50-Megapixel Camera Sensor to Rival Sony’s New IMX689 in Oppo Find X2 Pro


  • Samsung Unveils 50-Megapixel Camera Sensor with faster autofocus
  • ISOCELL GN1 large 1.2μm-sized pixels
  • Samsung's GN1 obvious competitor is  Sony’s new IMX689 sensor, featured in phones like the Oppo Find X2 Pro

South Korean technology gaint is a global leader in advanced semiconductor technology. 

Samsung unveils 50-megapixel camera sensor called the ISOCELL GN1.

This is the first sensor that includes both dual-pixel autofocus and Tetracell pixel-binning. 

It will result in faster autofocus. Besides, the company says should offer a combination of fast performance and good low-light image quality.

The newly introduced ISOCELL GN1 will also have large 1.2μm-sized pixels, bringing a new level of performance by combining DSLR-level auto-focus speeds and elevated light sensitivity for stellar low-light photos that will be optimized for a more dynamic picture-taking experience.

Yongin Park, Samsung executive vice president said “With innovative pixel technologies, Samsung has been at the forefront of offering high-performance image sensors that closely cater to increasingly diversifying market needs.

The ISOCELL GN1 is part of that commitment to deliver stunning images to consumers in any environment, “We will continue to introduce image sensor solutions at the cutting-edge that will lead the next trends in mobile photography.” He added

The pixel size is 1.2μm, closer to what one can find on a normal phone camera sensor than the high-resolution chips that’ve become increasingly popular recently. 

Samsung’s GN1 obvious competitor is  Sony’s new IMX689 sensor, featured in phones like the Oppo Find X2 Pro, which has 48 megapixels at 1.22μm. By default, Samsung’s sensor will take 12.5-megapixel photos with four pixels binned into one.

Samsung’s recent Galaxy S20 Ultra used a 108-megapixel sensor without dual-pixel has suffered from poor autofocus performance. 

This time GN1 brings dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus use two photodiodes side-by-side within a single pixel that can receive light from different angles for phase detection. The high class auto-focusing with 100 million phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF) agents. 

The company said “With all of the sensor’s active pixels working as auto-focusing agents, the GN1 can detect and focus onto a desired still or moving object from every corner in an instant, even in low-light conditions”

When an individual captures an image using GN1, the system will merge the outputs from the two photodiodes within the pixel, creating a single-pixel result. The GN1 will also have Smart-ISO that will provide the camera the feature of selecting the optimal ISO.  

With the development of different smartphones, creating sharp images is an important element for those who are well accustomed to visually grasping and cherishing special moments using their smartphones. Most smartphone manufacturers put more emphasis on extremely detailed images with ultra-resolutions to address different preferences of users. 

The new sensor has entered mass production this month, which of course means that it would be available in phones soon.
