Now samsung latest phones are available in market. Samsung announced a new smartphone image sensor that claims to have “the industry’s smallest pixel size.” After introducing 0.8μm pixels into its 48-pixel and now 64-pixel sensors, the sensor has been widely adopted by Chinese smartphone manufacturers in 2019, and Samsung is now producing the world’s first 0.7μm pixel image sensor.The ISOCELL Slim GH1 is a 43.7 megapixel (7,968 x 5,480) sensor designed to provide high resolution in a small size. Samsung said it provides the best solution for “ultra-thin full-screen devices”, which means it is suitable for self-timer cameras. The company’s current 32 megapixel 0.8μm sensor is often used this way.
If you don’t know anything about camera sensors, then small pixel sizes are often considered a bad thing because each light spot has a low spotlighting capacity and the risk of introducing noise is higher. However, these new high-resolution phone sensors work differently. In the low light case, they combine four pixels together, in which case a 10.9 megapixel image should be produced with a sensitivity of 1.4 μm pixels – still not very large, but according to the smartphone standard It is still quite large.
Of course, resolution and pixel size are not the most important factors in terms of the overall photo quality of a smartphone. Some of the best cell phone cameras use a regular 12 megapixel sensor. But I found that for mid-range devices, these small pixel sensors provide a lot of detail in the presence of sufficient light without excessive noise in the absence of light. (Please look forward to some 64 megapixel sensor testing in the near future.)Samsung said it expects the ISOCELL Slim GH1 to be put into mass production by the end of this year, so we are likely to see it enter the mobile phone market in early 2020.
