Samsung Unveils the World's First 64-Megapixel Smartphone Sensor

The Samsung GW1 64MP camera sensor

The software and the image processors will also have to be tweaked quite a bit to take advantage of the massive amounts of data that the new Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM2 image sensor will be capturing.

With a resolution of 64MP, the GW1 is now the highest resolution sensor in the lineup.

This new 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 will support 0.8um pixel size and like before, will use Samsung's Tetracell technology with remosaic algorithm to produce crisp and bright 16MP size images.

MRI Confirms Strained Right Calf for Kevin Durant | Golden State Warriors
If it's a Grade 1 strain, then Durant is likely out for the rest of the playoffs if they advance. But this has to be seen as good news for both Durant and the Warriors.


The GW1 features Tetracell technology, which merges four pixels into one for achieving high-quality photos across all lighting conditions. Phone manufacturers have contentiously upped the ante in the past years and Samsung is looking to bring the latest breakthrough in mobile photography with its 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. "This allows the sensor to optimize its full well capacity (FWC), utilizing the collected light more efficiently especially in bright environments", Samsung said on its website.

Samsung says it will begin mass production later this year on a 64-megapixel smartphone camera sensor, the most powerful salvo in the megapixel war among the smartphone companies. According to Samsung, this is about 60 decibels for most image sensors and 120 decibels for the human eye. The GW1 also included a high-performance phase detection auto-focus system and HD video recording at 480 frames-per-second for slow motion captures.

Interestingly, Samsung maintains the pixel size of Isocell GW1. Samsung has also adopted DGC and Super PD technology for the sensor.

Among the infected this year, 13 people were reported to have died from the disease in Albania, Romania and Ukraine. The number of measles cases in New York City has reached 466 since the outbreak began in October.


As for how it works, the GW1 supports Dual Conversion Gain (DCG), a tech that converts the light captured by the camera into electrical signals based on the light source available in the environment at that time.

The two image sensors are now sampling and are expected to go into mass production in the second half of this year, Samsung said.
