This is how mobile cameras with Samsung's mini sensor are getting better

Samsung introduced the 200MP Isocell HP3, which is the smallest so far in its class.

It was in 2019, Samsung started with 108MP

The advantage of improvement is that premium mobile phones can offer a thinner design and better camera quality, even when the lighting conditions are poor.

And there is more:

  • Enhanced AF with Super QPD (with pixel-level autofocus)
  • Improved performance when there are weak light sources
  • Enhanced color dynamic range with “multi-gain” ISO
  • 0.56 µm (µm) pixels
  • 8K @ 30fps
  • 4K @ 120 FPS
  • 14-bit color depth (4 trillion colors)

Much smaller is the sensor

Samsung states that the HP3 is 12 percent smaller than its predecessor’s 0.64 micrometer. The area in which the unit will be placed is reduced by 20 percent at the same time, which is the main reason that it enables manufacturers to continue to offer mobile phones that are equally thin, but with better camera characteristics.

This technology allows the sensor to simulate a large pixel sensor to capture brighter and more vibrant images even in dim environments, such as indoors or at night.


Mass production of the chips will start later this year, so expect the first mobile phones with the chip next year. Apple has traditionally used Sony, if not, we thought this was on its way to the iPhone 14.
