Samsung JN1 Image Sensor Begins Mass Production

Samsung Electronics has announced that the company has begun mass production of the world’s first 0.64-micrometre pixel size image sensor. It is called the Samsung ISOCELL JN1 and comes with a 50-megapixel sensor and features cutting edge Samsung developed technologies such as enhanced ISOCELL 2.0, Smart-ISO and Double Super PDAF.

According to Samsung Electronics, the ISOCELL JN1 equipped ISOCELL 2.0 technology, helps boost the light sensitivity by up to 16%. The company has managed to fit all these technologies into a small 1/2.76-inch image sensor, which is the smallest and most feature-packed sensor from the labs of Samsung Electronics.

The company has informed that the new sensor will be compatible with current 1/2.8-inch products, and this can be used inside front-facing, ultra-wide, or telephoto modules and the primary wide-angle camera as well. This sensor is expected to drop the overall weight of the camera module by up to 10% making the module slimmer and less protruding from the smartphone body.

The four-to-one pixel binning technology, developed by the company known as Tetrapixel will help capture better low-light shots by merging four adjacent 0.64μm-pixels into one big 1.28μm-pixel to quadruple light sensitivity for brighter photos. The polished Smart-ISO feature dynamically adjusts the ISO and employs Low ISO in brighter conditions and preserve dynamic range and pump up the ISO in a low-light scenario to weed out the noise.


The above mentioned Double Super PD feature packs 2x density of pixels (1/16) as opposed to Super PD (1/32). This helps improve the speed of auto-focus to a level that matches the speed in broad daylight. Speaking of video recording, it supports 4K resolution videos at 60 fps or Full HD videos at 240 fps. The Samsung JN1 Image Sensor is expected to debut in smartphones coming out later this year.
