Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature a 200MP image sensor for its main camera
7 days ago
Samsung has revealed its third 200MP smartphone image sensor, confusingly called the Isocell HP2. Unlike the HP3, which is aimed at premium midrange devices, this new sensor is unabashedly aimed at flagship phones—like the company’s new S23 Ultra, the apex of its forthcoming Galaxy S23 series.
For this purpose, the HP2 is slightly larger than the HP3—claimed to have the industry’s smallest pixels—at 1/1.3 inches across, around the same size as the previous S22 Ultra‘s 108MP sensor. That means it has a pixel size of 0.6 microns, but the main benefit of the Samsung’s extreme megapixel count is its Tetra2pixel binning technology that effectively creates either 1.2μm pixels (through four-to-one pixel binning to 50MP) or 2.4μm pixels (through 16-to-one pixel binning to 12.5MP).
