Samsung has quietly unveiled a new camera sensor for smartphones. Samsung has launched the ISOCELL HPX 200MP camera sensor. The ISOCELL HP3 camera sensor is the company’s third 200MP sensor. Xiaomi 12T Pro and Motorola Edge 30 Ultra use the ISOCELL HP1 which was launched last year. The Galaxy S23 Ultra may include Samsung’s 200MP ISOCELL HPX camera sensor.

Samsung has unveiled its new 200MP ISOCELL HPX sensor, a new flagship camera sensor technology. Using a 0.56-micron pixel size, the new sensor reduces the camera module by 20 percent.

Using Samsung’s Advanced Deep Trench Isolation (DTI) technology, the ISOCELL HPX sensor is designed to produce clear, vivid images with increased sensitivity. Samsung’s new phone camera sensor uses tetra-pixel technology, which combines 16 pixels into one. Lowlight pictures should be better with this kind of binning.

With Tetra pixel technology, four pixels are combined into one to produce a 50MP output at 1.12 microns or a 12.5MP output at 2.24 microns.

Samsung’s new sensor can also record 8K video at 30 fps. Furthermore, both 4K and Full HD models support seamless dual-HDR shooting. Depending on the shooting environment, Staggered HDR can capture light at three different exposures. For faster and more precise focusing, the sensor also uses Super QPD autofocus.

In January or February 2023, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to launch with the same sensor. Samsung’s replacement for the Galaxy Note-series has a 108MP sensor. With the new sensor, we could see a significant shift in both megapixel counts and camera technology.
