According to Samsung, these sensors will address the most known module problems on a smartphone. Having smaller modules and flexible design, the brand claimed that the two image sensors will allow mobile manufacturers to produce slim and bezel-less devices.

Based on the ISOCELL Plus pixel isolation technology, both GM1 and GD1 are said to bring optimized performance for smaller dimensions pixels, while maintaining its rich-resolution image quality. The GD1 also sports HDR that can offer balanced exposure, rich colors, and details when capturing photos and videos in different light settings, too.

“Thanks to Tetracell technology, where four pixels are merged to work as one to increase light sensitivity, the GM1 and GD1 can deliver light sensitivity equivalent to that of a 1.6μm-pixel image sensor at 12Mp and 8Mp resolution, respectively. The sensors also support Gyro-based electronic image stabilization (EIS) for fast and accurate image capture,” Ben K. Hur, Vice President of System LSI Marketing at Samsung Electronics, explained.

Samsung has revealed that the GM1 and GD1 sensors are expected to be in mass production in the Q4 of 2018.

This move from Samsung also suggests that its upcoming flagship devices could sport these camera sensors to battle out other photography-centric smartphones from other brands. What do you think?
