Samsung ISOCELL JN1 50MP sensor

Samsung has announced the first mobile image sensor the ISOCELL Slim JN1 50MP that adopts the smallest pixel size in the industry at 0.64μm. The 50-megapixel (Mp) 1/2.76″ sensor uses advanced ISOCELL 2.0, Smart-ISO, and Double Super PDAF technologies and comes with 0.64μm-sized pixels in a super-small package for much slimmer, ultra-high resolution cameras in mid-range to flagship smartphones with a 10% thinner camera module.

Samsung ISOCELL JN1 features

Samsung ISOCELL JN1 sensor Highlights -

  • ISOCELL 2.0 technology with added enhancements improves light sensitivity by around 16-percent.
  • For low-light environments, the sensor utilizes Samsung’s four-to-one pixel binning technology, Tetrapixel, which merges four adjacent 0.64μm-pixels into one big 1.28μm-pixel to quadruple light sensitivity for brighter 12.5Mp photographs.
  • Compatible with existing 1/2.8-inch products, allowing the sensor to be used for front-facing, ultra-wide, or telephoto cameras, in addition to standard wide camera options. It takes highly detailed selfies or group pictures in an amazing 50Mp resolution, as well as high-resolution video at up to 4K and high zoom ratios.
  • Smart-ISO technology changes the conversion gain based on the environment’s illumination level. Uses Low ISO mode in bright settings to retain detail in the highlights, and High ISO in low-lit environments to reduce readout noise and generate excellent low-light performance. Offers inter-scene HDR in mixed-light settings for optimum exposure levels derived from two separate readouts, from Low and High ISOs, that are merged to create a final image.
  • Double Super PD doubles the density of autofocus pixels over the sensor from 1/32 to 1/16 delivering faster, more accurate autofocus, even in dark surroundings or when you’re shooting an action-packed scene.
  • Supports up to 4K resolution video recording at 60 frames-per-second (fps) or full HD at 240fps.
