Samsung upgrades mobile cameras to 64 megapixels

64 pixels phone camera

There’s nothing like it in the market right now and Samsung is keen on bringing it out- a higher resolution image sensor for mobile phones that comes with a 64-megapixel sensor. Samsung is working on the ISOCELL Bright GW1 which will have the 64-megapixel sensor workable with the same 0.8μm-sized pixels that’s present for the 48-megapixel components.

What this means is that Samsung could innovatively found a way to capture more light overall with a physically larger sensor. Technically speaking about the component, the Bright GW1 is capable of producing 16-megapixel images by merging 4-pixels into one. That’s similar to what Samsung has achieved with its 48-megapixel sensors that produce 12-megapixel photos by default.

Better light, better capture

That’s not all. You can take good shots in full-resolution 64-megapixel with the new sensor as it’s capable of descrambling the color filters for good light capture. Samsung also announced that its updated 48-megapixel sensors will also have these features.

Today there are many devices in the market that have 48-megapixel cameras including Vivo, Huawei, Oppo, etc. And most of them have these sensors. Samsung is taking things a step further with its upgraded 64-megapixel sensors, which is expected to hit mass production in the second half of the year.
