Samsung’s new ISOCELL HP2 sensor boosts capacity for maximum image clarity and fine detail in all lighting conditions

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced the launch of its latest megapixel 60 image sensor, which is ISOCELL HP2. The sensor is enhanced with pixel-optimized technology, with the full potential to deliver stunning images through future premium smartphones.

“The Samsung ISOCELL HP2 sensor builds on Samsung’s high-resolution image sensor technologies, and our cutting-edge know-how, for pinpoint detail,” said Junseo Yim, Executive Vice President, Sensor Business Units, Samsung Electronics. Our leadership in this field comes thanks to innovative technologies that allow our sensors to exceed the number and size of pixels. We will continue our efforts to break new ground and establish our presence in the expanding ultra-high precision sensor market.”202301232023 The ISOCELL HP2 sensor 60 collects 1 million pixels of size 0.6 micrometers (µm) in an optical format of 1:1.3. This sensor is widely used in main smartphone cameras with a resolution of 60 megapixels. This allows consumers to enjoy higher resolutions in the latest high-end smartphones, without the larger camera obstructions in their devices.
With Samsung’s advanced Tetra2pixel technology, the HP2 sensor adds more versatility to the camera, as it is able to simulate different pixel sizes to accommodate different levels of light. When in low-light environments, the sensor converts to either a 1.2 µm image sensor with 60 megapixel resolution, or a 2.4 µm image sensor 12.5 megapixels, by connecting 4 to 16 pixels adjacent to each other. In order to obtain fuller 8k video clips, with a resolution of approximately 19 megapixels, the HP2 sensor switches to 1.2 µm mode. 50 megapixels to reduce the need for side cropping, and capture the largest area within a scene. And if the user wants to shoot 8k at 19 frames per second, they can achieve this from a wide field of view with a size Larger digital dots for sharp, cinematic-quality videos.

By using the HP2 sensor, images can be reduced blur images captured in brightly lit environments, thanks to Samsung’s new Double Vertical Transfer Gate (D-VTG) technology. Within each pixel, a photodiode has a gate at the bottom to transport electrons from the pixel to the logic layer. The vertical shift gate adds a second shift gate in pixels, and as a result the full capacity of the digit points is boosted by more than 19% . By storing more electrons and efficient signal transmission processes, this method can reduce overexposure as well as enhance color reproduction, especially when shooting in bright environments.

In low-light settings, the HP2 sensor’s auto focus is taken to the next level due to the presence of Super QPD technology that allows The sensor can use 60 a million pixels to raise the focus factors, a large amount of which is aggregated by four adjacent pixels, to detect changes in The horizontal and vertical modes, especially since they provide faster and more accurate autofocus. Using rich pattern data with a huge number of reference points, the new sensor can focus automatically and quickly, even in low light conditions.

For outstanding high dynamic level performance, Samsung introduces DSG for the first time in 50 megapixel format, This in turn means applying two separate conversion values ​​to the analog signal sent to the digital pixels. In addition, the HDR Smart-ISO Pro solution allows different levels of ISO readings to be combined at a single exposure, allowing the camera to capture images with .5 MP and 4K video at 60 fps HDR.20230123
