After the popularity of the isocell gn1 sensor, Samsung today released the isocell GN2 sensor, which is a 50 megapixel sensor, but can output 100 million pixels, and the size of 1 / 1.12 inch is also the largest at present.
Isocell GN2 has 50 million original pixels, and its size is 1.4um. In dark light environment, it can also turn four in one pixels into 2.8um super large pixels to improve the sensitivity, so as to take brighter night photos.
For high pixel occasions, isocell GN2 also provides 100 million pixels output function. The intelligent mosaic algorithm rearranges the pixels, and can create three independent layers of red, green and blue with 50 million pixels, realizing 100 million ultra-high pixels, which is convenient for cutting.
In terms of focusing, isocell GN2 is Samsung's first sensor that supports dual pixel pro (dual pixel enhancement) technology. Each pixel can be divided into left and right halves, and the phase difference is used for auto focusing.
Dual pixel enhancement technology can also be combined with four in one pixel technology. Isocell GN2 is also the first sensor that supports two technologies at the same time. It can focus quickly in any scene.
In other aspects, the isocell GN2 sensor also supports interleaved HDR, smart ISO and smart ISO pro, which can raise the sensitivity to 1 million level and greatly improve the night scene brightness. A new generation of night vision device is on the stage.
In terms of video, isocell GN2 also supports 4K 120fps, 1080p 480fps shooting, enhancing the playability of mobile video.
Samsung said that the isocell GN2 sensor is in mass production, but the official did not disclose the first company to adopt the isocell GN2 sensor. It was revealed that the upcoming Xiaomi 11 ultra will be launched on the market.
