The market for flagship smartphones has been proliferating, with the average adoption of megapixels increasing steadily from last year. In response to this trend, Samsung has developed a 200 Megapixel cutting-edge image sensor to significantly boost the pixel count to smartphones to bring more powerful imaging capabilities. “In addition to developing industry-leading image sensors for flagship smartphones, Samsung will continue to expand its market share in the megapixel arena by developing ISOCELL image sensors with versatile features to address various customer needs.”
It is the first time that Samsung has displayed the new 200-megapixel panel, which has more pixels on your eyes! It has the most effective resolution in the market with a whopping 200 megapixels camera with great features. It has an excellent lens that makes you feel like you are looking through a powerful telescope. Samsung is pushing its boundaries in photography. Samsung 200 megapixel camera lets anyone create their masterpiece without needing to be an expert photographer. The revolutionary 200-megapixel image sensor allows for smaller-sized pixel clusters, capturing photos in resolutions never seen before.
Samsung Electronics announced today that it has started mass production of the industry’s first 200-megapixel (MP) image sensor with 0.64μm pixels, and ISOCELL GN5, the first image sensor to adopt all-directional focusing Dual Pixel Pro technology with two photodiodes in a single 1.0μm pixel, using its advanced Gen detector technology. These are aimed to lead the era of the “ultra-high-definition 4K video era” by satisfying consumers’ demands for higher resolution images, higher frame rate videos, and more vivid colors.
What we can expect for Samsung 200 Megapixel camera

ISOCELL GN5 is a BSI-CMOS image sensor with 20% better light sensitivity than previous ISOCELL sensors. For those of you who don’t know, ISOCELL technology is a new camera solution from Samsung meant to improve its existing designs. Its primary focus is on reducing crosstalk and increasing the color filter array.
ISOCELL technology promises better image quality and performance, or at least that’s what we’ve learned about the existing sensor. Samsung has yet to reveal more details regarding the matter, but we should see it running on flagships early next year. The company is also expected to start producing the ISOCELL 2X2 (Dual-Pixel) technology sometime in 2018.
“Dual Pixel Pro successfully deploys Dual-Pixel AF technology across all pixels of the sensor, enabling every pixel to act as AF pixels. This enables ‘AF Everywhere’ performance at up to twice the speed of conventional cameras equipped with SLR lenses (Dual-Pixel AF is twice as fast as previous AF systems, even when using non-SLR lenses), making it possible to lock onto a subject just by pointing the camera at it, focus continuously on moving targets, or track a moving subject simply by moving the camera instead of refocusing repeatedly.”

The Samsung ISOCELL GN5 is a multi-mode image sensor capable of capturing photos and videos in up to 200MP resolution. The new sensor is claimed to introduce support for autofocusing technology with pixel-prioritization capability. With the DUAL PIXEL PRO technology, the 200MP ISOCELL GN5 improves on the 12MP ISOCELL sensor’s auto-focus functionality, delivering what Samsung claims is the world’s fastest AF speed of just 0.02 seconds or less than ¼ that of conventional image sensors.
It has zero shutter lag and very low power consumption while simultaneously reducing the odds of motion blur by up to 10 times. It allows users to capture clear and sharp images of fast-moving objects and people in action and helps correct distortion and chromatic aberration.
ISOCELL technology makes it possible to create almost the most miniature pixel size image sensor globally while also offering a significant reduction of color-cross talk, resulting in excellent image quality with low noise. Additionally, the dual photodiode design enables the ISOCELL sensor to support more advanced mobile camera features like Dual Pixel Auto Focus (DAF), which is more accurate and faster than alternative mobile solutions.
