Samsung Hexa²Pixel May reach 450 megapixels
A year has passed since Samsung released the 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP1 sensor in the second half of last year, and the first 200-megapixel phone has not yet been officially released, and now Samsung is going to start building a 450-megapixel sensor.
Samsung has recently registered a trademark called “Hexa²Pixel”, which has caused a lot of discussion among netizens. Ice Universe posted an arithmetic equation online: “if X÷6²=12 MP, then X=?” According to the calculation, the result is 432 MP (432 megapixels).
This tweet indicates speculation that Samsung may be packing a higher pixel camera sensor in its next models. Another tipster explained that both ISOCELL HP1 and ISOCELL HP3 are 200MP resolution (12.5MP in 16-in-1), and it’s hard to believe that it will be 450MP (12.5×6²) with Hexa²pixel?.
Samsung’s high-pixel sensors support pixel aggregation technology, such as the 108-megapixel HM3, which supports the “Nonapixel RGB Bayer Pattern”, where Nona means Nine, a 3 × 3 matrix pixel merge, or 9 in 1, with a final output of 12MP, with a single pixel of 2.4 microns.
The 200MP pixel HP1/HP3 supports “Tetra²pixel RGB Bayer Pattern”, where Tera means 4, and square means 16, i.e. 16 in one, outputting 12.5MP, the 200MP of HP1/HP3 is 12.5MP x 16.
If 12 megapixels are output, the original effective pixels are 432 megapixels. If you output 12.5 megapixels, then the original effective pixels are 450 megapixels. Faced with the possibility of billions of cell phone pixels in the future, I wonder what you have in mind.
