THE Samsung presented four new sensors for cell phone cameras on Tuesday (14), with resolutions of up to 108 megapixels and 0.7 µm pixels: the Isocell HM2, Isocell GW3, Isocell GM5 and Isocell JD1. There is still no forecast for the launch of smartphones with the components announced by the South Korean brand.
In common, the sensors have 0.7 μm pixels and are up to 15% smaller than the 0.8 μm components with the same resolution. According to Samsung, this feature allows manufacturers to have more flexibility to include new features and even apply a more simplified design to their smartphones.
The quartet also uses Isocell Plus and Smart-ISO technologies to improve light capture and the quality of photos and videos taken with the components, which have been optimized for the 0.7 µm pixels of the sensors.

Samsung’s new line of photo sensors has resolutions ranging from 32 to 108 megapixels. Most advanced of the quartet, the Isocell HM2 is the successor to HMX and HM1, with 108 MP. For videos, the component is capable of shooting in 4K at 120 frames per second (fps).
O Isocell GW3 comes next, with 64 megapixels and 4K video recording at 60 fps. The Isocell GM5 has 48 megapixels and was developed for cameras with ultrawide or telephoto lens. Finally, the Isocell JD1 has a resolution of 32 megapixels and shoots in Full HD at 120 fps.
According to Samsung, the Isocell HM2, GW3 and JD1 are already in production, while the Isocell GM5 is being evaluated by the manufacturers.
