Samsung Introduces New 50MP Sensor with Faster Autofocus

Samsung ISOCELL 50MP GN1 Sensor Launched

Last year, Samsung announced the 48MP ISOCELL GM1 and GM2 camera sensors, and today the company has taken the wraps off the new 50MP ISOCELL GN1 sensor.

We have been hearing lots of rumors regarding the new sensor from last week and sooner than expected the new sensor is finally on the table.

The new 50-megapixel camera sensor from Samsung is also most comparable to the DSLR level autofocus system even in low lighting conditions.

The all-new 50MP ISOCELL GN1 sensor comes with Dual Pixel and Tetracell technologies to offer high light sensitivity.

With the new sensor, users could capture even more details in the picture even at night time with little or no light. The sensor comes with larger 1.2μm pixels as well.

With the 100 million phase-detection autofocus (PDAF), the sensor is capable of doing super smooth and fast autofocus. In this new system, every individual pixel will act as an autofocusing agent which will make the autofocusing process even faster than usual, almost instantly.

As mentioned earlier, the sensor uses Tatracell technology that will be binning four pixels in 1 to give 12.5MP pixel-binned images. This comes into action in low light as it is capable of capturing more details and preserve the quality.

Samsung ISOCELL GN1 supports 8K video recording at 30fps.

Other features includes smart ISO and real-time HDR as well.

As per the blog post, the ISOCELL GN1 has already entered mass-production and it will be first featured in a Vivo smartphone.

It is more likely that the upcoming Vivo X50 Pro might be powered by a Samsung ISOCELL GN1 50MP sensor.
