Comes with 0.5μm pixel

Samsung has unveiled its newest 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP3 sensor, which brings the “industry’s smallest pixel” at 0.56 μm, while promising better auto-foucs, and clearer HDR images.

While the ISOCELL HP1 was officially the first 200-megapixel sensor for smartphones, the ISOCELL HP3 has brings even smaller pixel size, down from 0.64μm to 0.56 μm. This makes the new sensor a 1/1.4" one, which is 20 percent smaller than the predecessor.

Thanks to 4-to-1 binning, the new sensor gets you 50-megapixel snaps at 1.12μm, or when it goes ultra-dark, 16-to-1 binning at 2.24μm for 12.5-megapixel shots.

Samsung also claims it gets faster auto-focus with Super-QPD auto-focusing technology, as well as the new improved Smart-ISO Pro feature, which should get better HDR performance.

Samsung is now shipping ISOCELL HP3 samples to smartphone makers and expects it to go into mass production later this year.
