New ISOCELL GN Sensor to Challenge 1-inch Sensor
Samsung is making waves in the world of smartphone camera sensors with their latest development in the ISOCELL GN. This new sensor in the ISOCELL GN series, with a size of 1/1.57 inches and a remarkable 50-megapixel resolution, is set to bring a significant boost to smartphone photography.
What sets the ISOCELL GN apart is its pixel size of 1.0μm, which promises to deliver outstanding image quality. But it doesn’t stop there; Samsung has managed to equip this sensor with the same pixel “Full-Well Capacity” as the ISOCELL HP2. This means that the ISOCELL GN can capture more light and detail, resulting in crisper and more vibrant photos.
One of the standout features of this sensor is its enhanced autofocus capabilities. This is a game-changer for smartphone photography, as quick and accurate autofocus is crucial for capturing those perfect moments. Additionally, the ISOCELL GN is designed to reduce inter-pixel crosstalk, minimizing unwanted interference between pixels and ensuring your images remain clean and clear. This Samsung ISOCELL GN sensor’s remarkable ability will challenge the 1-inch sensor despite its small size.
But when can we get our hands on this innovative sensor? According to reports, Samsung plans to introduce this new ISOCELL GN sensor as early as 2025, possibly debuting on the Galaxy Z Fold 8. In 2026, we can expect to see it on the Galaxy S26 model. This means that Samsung might skip the number 6 for foldable and head straight to 7 in the coming year. Furthermore, there are speculations that the Samsung Galaxy S-series Ultra model will continue to adopt high-megapixel sensors.
