(Pocket-dust) – Samsung has actually revealed a smart device video camera sensing unit with, what it declares to be, the tiniest pixel dimension yet.
The Isocell JN1 is a 0.64μm pixel sensing unit – the tiniest it handled formerly was a sensing unit with 0.7μm pixels.
This brand-new dimension allows the sensing unit ahead with high resolutions – the JN1 has a 50-megapixel matter – however in a smaller sized kind aspect.
Of training course, smaller sized pixels typically imply they will likely be much less reliable in reduced light problems (than traditional sensing units we make use of today). However, Samsung is pitching this brand-new sensing unit as either an additional or 3rd video camera alternative inside a confined phone.
For instance, it can be utilized to bump up the resolution of a front-facing selfie/video calling video camera. Or it can be utilized for the telephoto and/or ultra-wide angle video camera on a phone.
“Samsung’s advanced pixel technologies have once again pushed boundaries with the utmost precision to develop an image sensor with the industry’s smallest pixel size, yet with powerful performance,” claimed the executive vice head of state of Samsung’s sensing unit service, Duckhyun Chang.
“The Isocell JN1 at 0.64μm will be able to equip tomorrow’s sleekest smartphones with ultra-high resolution mobile photograph.”
The brand-new sensing unit is currently in automation. Expect to see it taken on by phone suppliers (and also Samsung) quickly.
