Samsung 200MP ISOCELL HP2 Image Sensor Might Debut in Galaxy S23 Ultra


Samsung has unveiled a new 200MP ISOCELL HP2 image sensor a few weeks ahead of its Galaxy Unpacked event. The new sensor is planned to arrive in the forthcoming flagships from the company. Samsung doesn’t specify which devices will have this 200MP sensor. However, it has long been speculated that it will be included in the next Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Regarding the technical specifications, the Samsung ISOCELL HP2 boasts 200 million 0.6-micrometer pixels and a 1/1.3-inch optical format. Without a doubt, the sensor is powerful, but it is also fairly small. As a result, it will reduce the size of the camera bumps. The sensor uses pixel binning to generate excellent photographs at 50MP and 12.5MP. Moreover, it is also capable of recording 8K video at 30 frames per second. It is somewhat faster than the Galaxy S22 Ultra from a year ago, which can only record 8K at 24 frames per second.

It will be interesting to see how much the video quality has progressed since last year. Since, while 8K sounds fantastic, the quality is often insufficient when it comes to real-world use. The 200MP sensor can capture 4K at 60 frames per second with HDR enabled when it is operating at its best. Samsung also says that Dual Vertical Transfer Gate tech can reduce washed-out colors in bright environments.

Samsung has explained the entire process of D-VTG 

Samsung explains how this operates as follows:” In a photodiode within each pixel, a voltage transfer gate is placed on the bottom to transport electrons from the pixels to the logic layer. With high precision, D-VTG adds a second transfer gate in the pixel, boosting the pixel’s full-well capacity by more than 33 percent. With more electrons stored and efficient signal transfers, this method can reduce overexposure and enhance color reproduction, especially in bright light conditions.”

Samsung has adjusted the sensor to work well in low-light situations as well. Low-light shots are normally where smartphones tend to suffer. It can perform well in bright conditions. The sensor’s Super QPD technology also enables autofocusing in low-light conditions in addition to higher image quality. In June 2022, the business provided information about its Super QPD technology, noting that: “all of the sensor’s pixels are equipped with autofocusing capabilities. In addition, Super QPD uses a single lens over four-adjacent pixels to detect the phase differences in both horizontal and vertical directions. This paves way for a more accurate and quicker autofocusing for smartphone camera users.”
