Samsung ISOCELL GNK Introduction
Samsung has officially introduced the ISOCELL GNK, a groundbreaking mobile image sensor set to revolutionize the smartphone photography experience. The ISOCELL GNK (model S5KGNK) represents a significant leap in imaging technology, offering a resolution of 50 megapixels and a substantial 1/1.3-inch sensor size. Engineered with an array of advanced features, this sensor is geared to bring about a new era in smartphone camera capabilities.
High Dynamic Range Performance: Samsung’s ISOCELL GNK integrates staggered HDR technology, collaborating with three distinct ISO modes, enhancing the sensor’s HDR capabilities to deliver images with a dynamic range of up to 102dB. The Smart-ISO Pro, operating on a single-frame basis, not only extends the dynamic range but also minimizes motion artifacts, resulting in images with impressive color depth of up to 14-bit.
Dual Pixel Pro Autofocus: With two photodiodes per pixel, the Dual Pixel Pro autofocus feature within the ISOCELL GNK rapidly and accurately focuses on subjects in motion throughout the entire frame, providing ultra-fast and precise autofocus.
Impeccable Detail and Video Capabilities: Capture detailed moments with precision as the ISOCELL GNK allows for 8K video recording at 30fps, maintaining minimal loss in the field of view. It further supports autofocus and HDR video in Full HD mode at frame rates as high as 240fps.
Adaptive Lighting Solutions: In varying lighting conditions, the sensor adapts seamlessly. In low-light scenarios, it combines neighboring pixels to form larger 2.4μm pixels, significantly enhancing light sensitivity. Moreover, in bright lighting, the on-chip remosaic technology maximizes the benefit of Tetrapixel, delivering exceptional 50MP image quality.
