Though “greater megapixels in smartphone cameras do not translate to sharper images” is true, there have now been 64MP image sensors potentially leading to the belief that there could be 64MP camera smartphones in the near future. By the way, Samsung has introduced these new 64MP image sensors called the ISOCELL Bright GW1, along with the 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM2 sensor.
The 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW 1 incorporate the Tetracell technology through which images captured in bright light conditions would be rendered comparatively clearly. For the all-light pictures, there is the Remosaic algorithm for rendering low-light shots. Now, these deserve a real-world evolution – in case they make it to the rear cameras within futuristic smartphones.
“Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 are currently sampling and are expected to be in mass production in the second half of this year,” states Samsung in an official press release. This means that there could very well be 64MP camera phones in our hands.
At this point in time, 48MP camera smartphones are slowly catching up in the market, in countries like India; where there is the Redmi Note 7 Pro that comes with a 48MP rear camera.
“With more pixels and advanced pixel technologies, Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 will bring a new level of photography to today’s sleekest mobile devices that will enhance and help change the way we record our daily lives,” stated Yongin Park who is Executive Vice-President of Sensor Business at Samsung Electronics.
With 64MP cameras set to become a reality – not too far away from now, it remains to be seen whether these cameras would be pop-up snappers that also cater to the selfie generation. Wouldn't this make sense?
