Samsung today announced its latest 200-megapixel (MP) image sensor, the ISOCELL HP2, for next gen premium Android smartphones. The ISOCELL HP2 comes with improved pixel technology and full-well capacity to deliver great images.

Highlights of ISOCELL HP2:

  • The ISOCELL HP2 packs 200-million 0.6-micrometer (μm) pixels in a 1/1.3” optical format.
  • When in low-lit environments, the sensor transforms either into a 1.2μm 50MP or 2.4μm 12.5MP image sensor by binding four to 16 neighboring pixels.
  • For fuller 8K video, approximately at 33MP, the HP2 switches to 1.2μm 50MP mode to minimize cropping and capture more of the scene.
  • Samsung’s new Dual Vertical Transfer Gate (D-VTG) technology will improve Washed out pictures from brightly lit environments.
  • In low-lit settings, the HP2’s auto-focusing with Super QPD, allows the sensor to use all its 200-million pixels for focusing agents.
  • The DSG feature in 50MP mode applies two separate conversion values to the analog signal received at the pixel level for improved HDR.

The Samsung ISOCELL HP2 has entered mass production and it is expected to be available in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone.
