A few weeks ago, the appearance of 48 megapixel lenses was considered something out of the ordinary. However, Samsung is ready to "surpass" and this achievement. Recently, the South Korean company has shown two proprietary sensors: 48 megapixel and 64 megapixel. Photomodules with these sensors will appear in smartphones at the end of this year.
The pixel size in each of the sensors is equal to 0.8 microns. In low light conditions, the 48-megapixel sensor starts taking pictures in 12 megapixel format, and the 64-megapixel one - in 16 megapixels. New support all branded developments Samsung.
Among the advantages of the 64-megapixel sensor, it is possible to note the possibility of carrying out accelerated video recording at a speed of 480 FPS in Full HD format.
Mass production of new sensors starts in the summer.
