In its most recent commercial, Samsung demonstrated the potential of their forthcoming camera sensor. The camera sensor was used to click an image and print a large version of it for outdoor ad placements, according to the company’s latest video. The ad touts the ISOCELL HP1 200MP picture sensor’s capabilities, which comes as no surprise.

Samsung does not use a smartphone in the video. Which is understandable (after all, why tease a smartphone so early?). However, the team created a special circuit board with the sensor and camera lens and mounted it on a standard tripod. This is then connected to additional devices such as a viewfinder’s external display and the histogram. You can also see a team of people working on lighting and control.

Apart from the next Galaxy S23 series, Motorola and Xiaomi are expected to release their next premium smartphone in the top class with the new sensor. They’re also likely to run on the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, which was just launched. Later this year, the ISOCELL HP1 sensor will be available in other Samsung cameras.

Better editing with larger sensors

The image acquired from the camera was printed onto 12 distinct fabric pieces reaching about 2 metres in length, according to Samsung’s latest advertisement. The final huge canvas for the outdoor brand advertising was then put together from these. The company wants to demonstrate that capturing a picture and modifying parts of it does not result in a loss of quality.

According to the sensor’s technical specifications(opens in new tab), the ISOCELL HP1 can capture 8K video at 30 frames per second and 4K video at up to 120 frames per second. Improved HDR and low-light performance are also included.

On smartphones, however, the sensor will function differently. The ChameleonCell pixel-binning technique will be used in the ISOCELL sensor to merge 4 or 16 pixels into a single unit. That means that instead of a full 200MP image, smartphones will produce a 50MP or 12.5MP image with improved image quality and detail.
