After launching the world’s first 108MP image sensor, Samsung has now introduced the first 0.7-micrometer (μm)-pixel image sensor that can change the way cameras look in smartphones with full-display without any notches. Dubbed as the Samsung ISOCELL Slim GH1, the sensor is claimed to offer an “extremely compact package”. Samsung is expected to begin mass production by the end of this year and smartphones with this sensor is expected to be available early next year. 

The new ISOCELL Slim GH1 offers a maximum resolution of 43.7-megapixels. Samsung’s new ISOCELL Plus pixel isolation technology is claimed to minimize optical loss. Under low light, the sensor uses Tetracell pixel-merging technology to increase light sensitivity and is claimed to be equivalent to that of a 1.4μm-pixel image sensor. 
 “Using Tetracell technology, the GH1 is converted down to 3,984×2,740, a resolution that snugly covers the 4K (3,840×2,160) resolution, allowing users to capture more detailed backgrounds when recording high-resolution videos or selfies at 60T frames per second (fps),” said Samsung in a statement. 
 The GH1 supports a gyro-based electronic image stabilization (EIS) and a high-performing phase detection auto-focus technology called Super PD for faster autofocus. Also, the real-time high dynamic range (HDR) feature delivers more balanced exposure and richer color even in mixed-light environments. Samsung claims that ISOCELL Slim GH1 can shoot 4K videos with minimum loss in the field of view (FoV). 

 “Samsung has been stepping up in pixel technology innovation from the industry’s first 1.0μm-pixel image sensor, to most recently, 0.8μm ultra-high-resolution sensors at 64MP and 108MP. We are pleased to deliver yet another breakthrough with the industry’s first 0.7μm pixel image sensor, the ISOCELL Slim GH1 that will enable sleeker and more streamlined designs as well as excellent imaging experiences in tomorrow’s smartphones,” said Yongin Park, executive vice president of the sensor business at Samsung Electronics.
