Samsung just announced the world's first 0.64-micrometer (μm)-pixel image sensor, the 50MP ISOCELL JN1.

The 1/2.76-inch JN1 uses ISOCELL 2.0 technology with new enhancements that increase light sensitivity by about 16%. It also relies on Tetrapixel, Samsung's four-to-one pixel binning technology to merge four adjacent 0.64μm-pixels into one big 1.28μm-pixel for brighter 12.5MP photos.

Samsung states that the JN1 is the most versatile image sensor as it can be used for front-facing, ultra-wide or telephoto cameras. The smaller sensor also reduces the height of the camera module by about 10%, which will enable slimmer and more streamlined smartphone designs. Other specs include Smart-ISO, improved Double Super PD and 4K video recording up to 60fps.

As the JN1 is currently in mass production, consumers can expect it to show up in smartphones soon.
