Samsung Isocell JN1 0.64-micrometer pixel sensor announced

(Pocket-lint) – Samsung has unveiled a smartphone digicam sensor with, what it claims to be, the smallest pixel measurement but.

The Isocell JN1 is a 0.64μm pixel sensor – the smallest it managed beforehand was a sensor with 0.7μm pixels.

This new measurement permits the sensor to come back with excessive resolutions – the JN1 has a 50-megapixel rely – however in a smaller kind issue.

After all, smaller pixels usually imply they may probably be much less efficient in low gentle circumstances (than standard sensors we use at the moment). Nonetheless, Samsung is pitching this new sensor as both a secondary or third digicam possibility inside a cramped handset.

For instance, it may be used to bump up the decision of a front-facing selfie/video calling digicam. Or it may be used for the telephoto and/or ultra-wide angle digicam on a telephone.

“Samsung’s superior pixel applied sciences have as soon as once more pushed boundaries with the utmost precision to develop a picture sensor with the trade’s smallest pixel measurement, but with highly effective efficiency,” stated the manager vice chairman of Samsung’s sensor enterprise, Duckhyun Chang.

“The Isocell JN1 at 0.64μm will be capable of equip tomorrow’s sleekest smartphones with ultra-high decision cell {photograph}.”

The brand new sensor is now in mass manufacturing. Anticipate to see it adopted by handset producers (and Samsung) quickly.
