Back in March, a Qualcomm exec revealed that smartphone cameras will reach the 100MP count in 2019. Phone manufacturers have contentiously upped the ante in the past years and Samsung is looking to bring the latest breakthrough in mobile photography with its 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. Alongside it, the company also announced an updated 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM2.
Like the increasingly common 48MP sensors found throughout the smartphone landscape, Samsung’s new 64MP shooter will employ the Tetracell binding technology. It merges four pixels into one, pushing out 16MP images in low light environments and remosaic algorithm for full 64MP shots in brighter scenarios.
