Recently, Samsung Semiconductor released its latest bottom sensor, Samsung GN2. The biggest feature of this image sensor is that it tops the mobile sensor size list with 1 / 1.12 inch size. First of all, let's take a look at some parameters of this sensor.
The size of the sensor is far ahead
At present, Samsung image sensor has two flagship production lines, one is the Samsung HM series sensor (products include Samsung HMX, Samsung Hm1 and Samsung hm2), which mainly focuses on the bottom of high pixel; the other is the Samsung GN series sensor (products mainly include Samsung gn1 and Samsung GN2).
In addition to the largest pixel, Samsung GN2 sensor is not dominant in Samsung flagship sensor, but has more advantages in sensor size and single pixel area.
Although Samsung brand mobile phones are not equipped with Samsung GN series sensors, we can not deny the horror of important parameters of Samsung GN series.
In particular, Samsung GN2 is 1 / 1.12 inch in size, surpassing Sony's customized imx700 (1 / 1.28 inch) for Huawei, making it the largest area of mobile sensors on the market.
Single pixel area, to a certain extent, determines the performance of the sensor night scene. With the help of ISP and software algorithm, the night scene performance of Samsung GN2 is still very expected.
At the same time, Samsung GN2 introduces dual pixel Pro Technology to further improve the actual night scene shooting effect.
Dual pixel enhancement technology to improve night scene performance
For dual pixel Pro Technology, Samsung Semiconductor officially posted a technical analysis chart on its microblog
In short, Samsung officially means that dual pixel enhancement technology is based on dual pixel technology, but the upgrade is obvious. Dual pixel technology is to simulate the focusing of both eyes and realize the focusing of left and right phase difference; dual pixel enhancement technology can not only focus the left and right phase difference, but also realize the up and down phase difference and improve the focusing effect according to the characteristics of image sensor.
Models with Samsung GN2 sensors
Samsung sensors are used in many models of realme, and it is not ruled out that realme flagship in 2021 will use this sensor.
In addition, the field of mobile sensor is a two male market, which is mainly controlled by Sony and Samsung. Therefore, if Samsung GN2 can offer a very attractive price, the market performance can be expected.
In recent years, Samsung Semiconductor has made great efforts in the field of image sensor, which has brought us a lot of technical play.
For consumers, it is consumers who benefit from the competition between giants. At present, the semiconductor market is gradually changing from a buyer's market to a seller's market. If Samsung Semiconductor seizes the opportunity and relies on the layout of several flagship sensors, the double harvest of the word-of-mouth market is just around the corner.
