JurijTurnsek Posted May 19, 2020 Share Posted May 19, 2020 Please do do not spam this thread with YouTube links or obfuscate them somehow, since a page full of embeds takes ages to load. Samsung announced a GN1 1/1.31" 50mp sensor that can do 8K25p, 1080p240 with AF and 1080p400 with no AF, gyro IS (whatever that is), HDR and has 1.2 micron pixels with 2.4 in binned mode. Even the Samsung website does not specify frame rates for 4K, but I am guessing 60 fps tops. https://www.androidauthority.com/samsung-isocell-gn1-50mp-1120191/ This sensor seems like the best of the two worlds - binning is good for sharpness, but post processing to many megapixels can lead to some unnatural looking textures in foliage and grass for example. The additional 2mp over the required 48mp for 4-to-1 binning for 12mp images will aid in 4K EIS and could enable EIS in 8K as well. The reduced pixel count will ease up the CPU demands and offer better processing on the flagship CPUs. The sensor is already in production and that makes me wonder where it will end up. A good candidate would be the Q4 S20 Lite (S865 for 8K) and hopefully the other camera modules will be impressive as well (no macro or depth bullshit). The current flagship trend it wow with high megapixel numbers, but I am still a big proponent of just making larger sensors and thicker phones for fast optics. Every OEM should reserve one model in their incredibly expansive product lists for a no-compromise photo-centric model. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
