Published

on


On September 02, Samsung introduced two new image sensors with advanced ultra-fine pixel technologies, bringing the world’s first 200MP camera. It includes ISOCELL HP1 and ISOCELL GN5 camera sensors that will become part of future smartphones.

The ISOCELL HP1 is capable of high-resolution images and can provide up to 8K videos without losing quality. Whereas the 50MP ISOCELL GN5 will bring ultra-fast autofocus to smartphones.

Check the details about these new image camera sensors below.

Samsung ISOCELL HP1:

The ISOCELL HP1 is the world’s first mega+giant 200MP resolution sensor based on 0.64μm pixels, made with new pixels-binning technology. This is the first image sensor to adopt all-directional focusing Dual Pixel Pro technology with two photodiodes in a single 1.0μm pixel.

The camera sensor carries ultra-high resolution in a small package that can easily fit into a small size smartphone and provide an astonishing amount of detail in the images, which remains sharp even when you crop or resize them.

The ISOCELL HP1 equips an all-new ChameleonCell technology, it’s a pixel binning technology that uses different layouts such as two by two or four by four based on the current environment.

Moreover, it automatically adjusts itself in the low light conditions and becomes a 12.5MP image sensor with a large pixel size of 2.56μm by merging 16 neighboring pixels. This large pixel size allows more light to enter inside the sensor, which results in bright colors in the night mode.

This new image sensor can take 8K videos at 30 frames-per-second (fps). This sensor merges four neighbouring pixels to brings resolution to 50MP (8,192 x 6,144) to take 8K (7,680 x 4320) videos.

It remains to be seen as to which company adopts this ultra-high-end image sensor on its smartphones. Although, it will need a compatible processor.

Samsung ISOCELL GN5:

Samsung also launched the industry’s first 1.0μm image sensor called the ISOCELL GN5. It integrates Dual Pixel Pro and an all-directional autofocusing technology that enhances the autofocusing capabilities.

This new image sensor includes two photodiodes placed horizontally or vertically within each 1.0μm pixel of the sensor. The autofocusing feature of the ISOCELL GN5 is enhanced due to the one million phase detecting multi-directional photodiodes covering all areas of the sensor.

It also uses Samsung’s proprietary pixel technology, which applies the Front Deep Trench Isolation (FDTI) of Dual Pixel product. The FDTI enables the photodiodes to absorb enough possible light and decreases the crosstalk within the pixel.

On October 2022, Dr. Jaime Gonzalo, VP of Consumer Mobile Services Europe at Huawei, people from the global gaming industry were given insight into how they could achieve an improved return on their considerable investment in new and existing games to boost AppGallery for game distributions.

In the past few years, AppGallery is becoming a popular platform for games as it serves millions of monthly active users with new and existing gaming apps. Up until today, AppGallery now lists games from some leading titles such as PUBG Mobile, Mobile legends, Free Fire, State of Survival, and more. Hence, Huawei continues to work on the games section for AppGallery users to enrich its user engagement.

“Games developers are finding it increasingly difficult to reach new audiences. The major challenge is that customer acquisition cost has increased significantly over the years due to market saturation and inflated pricing. That’s why alternative app platforms such as AppGallery are emerging and playing their part to provide developers with improved revenue-generating opportunities,” said Jaime Gonzalo”.

Currently, 99.9% of apps downloaded via the leading app distribution platforms are losing users monthly, pushing the costs of retention higher and higher.

Gonzalo pointed out that AppGallery currently has 580 million global monthly active users, 45 million of which are in Europe. Outside China, AppGallery has increased in-app revenue by 3x year-on-year, casual game growth has increased by 20x over the same period, and monthly ad revenue for developers has doubled.

“We have a high spending audience,” Gonzalo told the Pocket Gamer audience. “In countries like Germany the ARPPU is $200, in the UK the average is $159 while in Poland it is $100, and this is coupled with very low developer effort. Existing Android games can be ready to onboard to AppGallery in just a few minutes. We also support every game with solutions, promotions, and developer kits, which accelerate distribution and boost revenue numbers.”
