Almost 10 months after launching its first 200MP camera sensor, Samsung is back with its successor. The company has announced its 2nd 200MP camera sensor namely the ISOCELL HP3 with the smallest pixel resolution in the entire industry.

ISOCELL HP3 Sensor Details and Features

The ISOCELL HP3 comes with a 12% smaller pixel size (0.56μm) than its predecessor (0.64μm) and packs 200 million pixels in a 1/1.4-inch optical format. It has a Super QPD auto-focusing solution which means all the pixels of the sensor are equipped with auto-focusing capabilities. Super QPD also uses a single lens over 4 adjacent pixels to detect the phase differences in horizontal and vertical directions. It can take 14-bit images for up to 4 trillion color support.

The ISOCELL HP3 sensor allows users to take videos in 8K at 30fps or 4K at 120fps. Combined with the Super QPD solution, one can take movie-like cinematic footage with their mobile devices. The lens also aims to give better low-light performance as well. Due to pixel binning, a 200MP sensor can capture 50MP images (2×2 binning) with 1.12μm pixels or 12.5MP images with 2.24μm pixel size.

The newest sensor by Samsung comes with Smart ISO Pro which captures images by combining 3 conversion gains (high-ISO, mid-ISO, and low-ISO) for better dynamic range. The company claims that the mass production of its newest sensor will begin later this year. The first phone to feature this sensor could be the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra next year.
