According to Samsung, the ISOCELL HP3 is 12% smaller in pixel size compared to the previous generation of Samsung’s 0.64-micron (μm) pixels, and contains 200 million pixels in a 1/1.4-inch optical format, which means the ISOCELL HP3 can reduce the number of cameras by 20% module area to make smartcell phoneManufacturers can ensure the thinness and lightness of their high-end products.
The ISOCELL HP3 is equipped with a Super QPD autofocus solution, which means that all sensor pixels are equipped with autofocus.
In addition, the Super QPD autofocus technology can use a single lens on 4 adjacent pixels to detect the horizontal and vertical phase difference, which allows the smartphone to autofocus more accurately and quickly.
It allows users to shoot 8K video at 30fps (Frames Per Second), or 120fps4Kvideo with less loss of field of view.
ISOCELL HP3 also provides a better low-light shooting experience. With Tetra²pixel technology, 4 pixels can be combined into one, converting a 0.56-micron (μm) 200-megapixel sensor into a 1.12-micron (μm) 50-megapixel sensor; or 16 pixels can be combined into one, resulting in a 2.24-micron (μm) 12.5-megapixel sensor sensor.
This technology allows the sensor to simulate a large pixel sensor,Capture brighter, more vivid photos even in dark environments such as indoors or at night.
To maximize the dynamic range of mobile image sensors, ISOCELL HP3 features an improved Smart ISO Pro technology that combines image information from two conversion gains in low ISO mode and high ISO mode to produce HDR images.
The upgraded Smart ISO Pro technology features triple ISO modes (low, mid and high modes) to further enhance the dynamic range of the sensor.
In addition, it enables the sensor to render images in over 4 trillion colors (14-bit color depth), which is 64 times the 68.7 billion colors (12-bit) of its predecessor.
With single-frame progressive HDR (Staggered HDR) supported by intelligent ISO Pro technology, ISOCELL HP3 can switch between high and low ISO solutions according to the shooting environment to obtain high-quality HDR video.
Currently,Samsung ISOCELL HP3 samples are already on the market, and mass production is expected to start this year.
