Samsung's new 48 and 64 megapixel sensors that are on their way to next phones


If a phone with 48 megapixels camera seems little to you, get ready for the phones that Samsung wants to launch with up to 64 megapixels.

The South Korean giant announced on Thursday, May 9, a new Isocell photographic sensor, the Bright GW1 that allows cameras on cell phones to be up to 64 megapixels, a size that has not yet been seen on mobile phones.

This GW1 photographic sensor can take 16 megapixel photographs in low light scenarios and 64 megapixel photographs in good lighting scenarios. Samsung also assures that the GW1 allows to use HDR in real time of up to 100 decibels, approaching the capacity of the human eye of about 120 decibels.

Samsung said that this sensor will go into mass production in the second half of 2019, so it is likely to see it on phones that arrive this year to high-end or mid-range phones (perhaps from the hand of Galaxy Note 10).

The manufacturer of the Galaxy S10 also revealed the Bright GM2 48 megapixel sensor. Like the GW1, the GM2 focuses on improving images in low light scenarios, increasing detail and improving vivid and natural colors.

The GM2 also went into production this year.
