A slice of Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Samsung unveils an image sensor for the new king of mobile photography



Samsung Electronics has introduced a new flagship image sensor for smartphones. The 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN2 is the successor to last year’s ISOCELL GN1. While the resolution has been retained, it brings a number of other improvements, including larger pixels and faster autofocus.

The 1 / 1.12-inch sensor has a pixel size of 1.4 micrometers. As the manufacturer promises, the new sensor provides high-quality photos up to 100 megapixels, improved Dual Pixel Pro autofocus, HDR and intelligent selection of the optimal light sensitivity value – Smart ISO Pro, depending on lighting conditions.

In low light conditions, the sensor can use 4 pixels as one 2.8 micrometer. In 100MP mode, the sensor reorganizes the pixels to create three separate 50MP layers in green, red and blue. These frames are then scaled and combined to produce a single 100MP photo.

Dual Pixel Pro technology delivers Samsung’s “most advanced” phase detection detection detection system ever. It uses two photodiodes next to each other in each pixel, providing fast focusing. Unlike Dual Pixel, the solution also offers omnidirectional focusing by splitting pixels not only vertically but also diagonally.

The improved HDR mode not only allows you to take pictures in difficult lighting conditions, but also reduces power consumption by 24% compared to HDR in ISOCELL GN1.

ISOCELL GN2 supports Full HD + video shooting at 480 fps and 4K at 120 fps. Samsung has already started mass production of the sensor.

The renowned network whistleblower Ice Universe with an extensive track record of reliable mobile leaks, including Xiaomi and Samsung, said that the new ISOCELL GN2 will be used in the flagship model Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, whose announcement is expected in the spring. Its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, topped DxOMark’s Best Camera Phones ranking until the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Huawei Mate 40 Pro + became the King of Mobile Photography.
