With the Kenyan market currently dominated with camera oriented devices the highest having a 48 Megapixel camera, Samsung has announced plans to unveil a new sensor that will have 64 Megapixel which will be the highest of all.
The sensor going by the name ISOCELL Bright GW1, will have the 64MP allowing more light on the image capture. The technology However will still use the same 0.8 ?m-sized pixels as the current 48MP We have in the market.
The technology, Bright GW1 will still produce 16 MP images, however it will be merging four pixels into one just like how the existing 48-megapixel sensors turn out 12-megapixel photos by default.
The technology will also be able to descramble the colour to get a full 64MP shots when taken in good light.
Previously, the technology was incorporated in the Sony’s IMX586 which has the 48-megapixel sensor witb the same capability.
48-megapixel cameras are now a common sight on phones: Samsung, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, and others have all shipped devices with the sensors.
Samsung expects its 64-megapixel part to go into mass production in the second half of this year, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the feature show up on spec sheets for late-2019 flagships — particularly if image sensor market leader Sony follows suit.
