Samsung has introduced a new camera sensor called ISOCELL GN2.

The new product is the successor to last year’s ISOCELL GN1. The sensor received a resolution of 50 MP and a size of 1 / 1.12 ”. Thanks to this, the output can be imaged with a maximum resolution of 100 megapixels. Also, the sensor can shoot video in 4K @ 120fps or FHD @ 480fps. The pixel size in ISOCELL GN1 is 1.4μm. Due to binning, this figure can be increased up to 2.8μm.

The main feature of the new Samsung sensor is the support for Dual Pixel Pro technology. She is responsible for ultra-fast focusing. While a regular Dual Pixel divides red, green and blue pixels vertically, the Dual Pixel Pro does so horizontally. This process allows for better focusing of the bottom and top of the frame.

ISOCELL GN2 also boasts an improved HDR mode that consumes 24% less power compared to ISOCELL GN1, as well as Smart ISO Pro technology.

Samsung has already started mass production of ISOCELL GN2. The sensor should appear in smartphones in the near future.
