Recently Samsung had launched the two all-new smartphone camera sensors of a 64-megapixel and a 48-megapixel Samsung Isocell image sensors. Despite packing more resolution, this chip will utilise the 0.8-micrometre-sized pixels similar to Samsung's current 48-megapixel sensor. Samsung claims its new sensor delivers brighter images in low-light conditions and richer details in brighter settings.

The Bright GW1 functions as a standard 16-megapixel sensor that merges four pixels into one to give you high-res 64-megapixel shots. It is also touted to showcase up to 100dB of dynamic range in real time, a wider range than any other smartphone sensor and close to what Samsung says is the human-perceptible limit of 120dB. The sensor further brings high-performance phase detection for improved autofocus and will support Full HD video recording at 480fps.

Both Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 are now sampling and mass production is expected in the second half of 2019.

The world's leader in advanced semiconductor technology, Samsung Electronics has come up with ISOCELL Bright GW1, which is a 64MP image sensor.

Moreover, at a media briefing in Seoul, executive vice president of Samsung's sensor business Yongin Park, said: "we are also looking into new applications for sensors for autonomous vehicles going forward". Having more power, better screen, more autonomy or sound are still important aspects, but it is the photographic one where more differences are marked and can be what determines the purchase. According to Samsung, the new sensor will support up to 100 decibels. Cleverly, the sensor can adapt to different lighting conditions.

Both the GW1 and GW2 are sampling to customers and will go into mass production later this year. Currently, it is the largest imaging sensor in the market and beats Sony's 48MP IMX586 sensor in terms of pixel count. This technology aims to enhance the quality of images captured by the device by reducing the amount of light that bleeds to adjacent sensors.
