64-megapixel phone cameras are coming

Samsung has announced a new image sensor for mobile phones with a higher resolution than any other comparable in the market. The ISOCELL Bright GW1 is a 64-megapixel sensor that uses the same 0.8μm pixels of Samsung's current 48-megapixel component, which means it will be a physically larger sensor that can capture more light in general.

The Bright GW1 produces 16 megapixel images by combining four pixels in one, as for example, existing 48 megapixel sensors produce 12 megapixel photos by default. The new Samsung sensor will also be able to decipher the color filter for 64 megapixel full resolution shots in good light. Sony's 48-megapixel IMX586 sensor has a similar capacity, but Samsung does not; Today, the Korean company is also announcing an updated 48-megapixel part that offers the same feature.

48-megapixel cameras are now a common sight on phones: Samsung, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi and others have shipped all devices with sensors. Samsung expects its 64-megapixel share to begin mass production in the second half of this year, so it would not be surprising to see the feature appear on the flagship specification sheets of late 2019, especially if Sony, market leader in image sensors. costume
