Samsung has just launched the new ISOCELL HP2 image sensor, a 200MP smartphone camera sensor for premium smartphones.


The ISOCELL HP2 is a 200MP camera with 0.6μm pixels in a 1/1.3-inch optical format. This is a sensor size that is used in 108MP smartphone cameras and allows you to produce higher resolutions in high-end smartphones minus the large camera bump.

The sensor has Tetra2pixel that allows it to accommodate various lighting levels. It transforms into a 1.2μm 50MP in low light settings or a 2.4μm 12.5MP by binding four to 16 nearby pixels.

Samsung also introduces the DSG feature in 50MP mode. During this, it applies two different conversion values to the analog signal received at the pixel level. The sensor also features Smart-ISO Pro that merges different ISO levels from a single exposure to take 12.5MP images and 4K video at 60fps in HDR.

In low-lit environments, the sensor uses Super QPD which uses all 200 million pixels to deliver faster and more accurate autofocusing. It also has the new Dual Vertical Transfer Gate technology to reduce washed-out photos from overly bright environments.

Samsung revealed that the ISOCELL HP2 sensor has entered mass production but has not mentioned when it will ship or which smartphones will debut the new sensor. There are speculations though that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 series will feature the new sensor.


Ram found his love and appreciation for writing in 2015 having started in the gaming and esports sphere for GG Network. He would then transition to focus more on the world of tech which has also began his journey into learning more about this world. That said though, he still has the mentality of "as long as it works" for his personal gadgets.
