Large pixels are naturally an important direction for the development of photosensitive elements on mobile phones, but small pixels actually have their own uses.Earlier Samsung released a brand new ISOCELL JN1 The photoreceptor, its single pixel is only 0.64μm, the smallest in the industry, and the CMOS size is 1/2.76 inches, which makes it the smallest 50MP photoreceptor in the current mobile market.

“Samsung’s advanced pixel technology once again broke the boundaries and developed Samsung’s smallest pixel size image sensor. The 0.64μm ISOCELL JN1 enables ultra-high-resolution photos taken on a thin and stylish smartphone.” Duckhyun Chang, Executive Vice President of Samsung Semiconductor’s Sensor Business Said.

Now that the multi-camera system has basically become the standard configuration of mobile phones, JN1 can fully take on the task of Selfie or non-main camera rear camera sensor. For products that mainly pursue a thin and light body, it is not impossible to use it as the main camera. According to Samsung, compared with the existing 0.7μm pixel module (estimated 43.7MP ISOCELL Slim GH1), the thickness of JN1 can be reduced by about 10%, and this will help reduce the degree of protrusion of the camera.

Since it is a small pixel, in order to increase the amount of light, it is not surprising that JN1 also supports four-in-one pixels. Most of the time, it is estimated that the output will be 12.5MP. In addition, this component also supports ISOCELL 2.0, which can increase sensitivity by 16%. At the same time, it also has features such as Smart ISO, Double Super PD focusing, and can record [email protected] or [email protected] According to Samsung, JN1 has already begun mass production, but which product will be the first to be released? Everyone may wish to guess.
