Samsung has announced a new smartphone image sensor - the first in the industry to utilize smaller 0.7-micrometer pixels in a sensor of its type. 


The 43.7 megapixel Samsung ISOCELL Slim GH1 is a super-compact sensor, designed for slim full-display smartphones. It features gyro-based electronic image stabilisation and a high-performing phase detection auto-focus technology as well as real-time HDR. 

"Samsung has been stepping up in pixel technology innovation from the industry’s first 1.0μm-pixel image sensor, to most recently, 0.8μm ultra-high-resolution sensors at 64Mp and 108Mp," said Yongin Park, executive vice president of the sensor business at Samsung Electronics. "We are pleased to deliver yet another breakthrough with the industry’s first 0.7μm pixel image sensor, the ISOCELL Slim GH1 that will enable sleeker and more streamlined designs as well as excellent imaging experiences in tomorrow’s smartphones."

Samsung say that the new sensor uses ISOCELL Plus technology which minimises colour cross-talk and optical loss enabling the small 0.7-micrometer pixels to absorb sufficient light and produce 'bright and vivid' photos. 

In a positive point for 4K video as well, the sensor is able to capture videos with minimum loss in Field Of View - most high-resolution image sensors crop or scale down image resolutions. 

The ISOCELL Slim GH1 should be in mass production by the end of 2019. 

Earlier this year, Samsung announced a sensor capable of taking 100-megapixel images
