Samsung has today unveiled a new 50MP ISOCELL GNK sensor with boast improvements. It will enhance the photography of many Samsung and non-Samsung smartphones. With the new sensor, users will witness a better dynamic range of up to 120 dB. For this, it has improved three ISO modes to improve dynamic range by reducing motion artifacts. The new ISOCELL GNK has the same numbers of 1.2-micron pixel size and the same 1/1.3 size, though it produces better picture quality than its predecessors.
To achieve this milestone, Samsung has worked in many areas to get better-quality images in different conditions. The new sensor has the ability to capture images in 14-bit RAW images. In the video recording, users can take 8K video recording in 30fps mode without losing much quality. Further, HDR video FHD is possible up to 240fps, as promised by Samsung. There are also other noticeable changes to the new sensor.
The first batch of Galaxy phones with a 50MP ISOCELL GNK sensor might launch in the second half of 2024. Not only Galaxy phones, but other mid-range smartphones from other companies will use Samsung’s sensor. With the new sensor, the mid-range phones will narrow the camera gap between flagship models, just don’t expect too much from it.
