How is pixel count related to highly detailed smartphone photos, and why is 200MP called epic resolution? To answer this, let’s look at why more and more smartphone cameras are using ultra-high resolution image sensors to enhance picture quality with epic details.

More pixels.
More information.

The pixel count in a sensor determines how detailed an image can be. As digital photos get bigger, they contain more information for more details. A 200MP image is 16 times bigger with 16 times more information than the 12.5MP image. A 200MP image is also 4 times bigger with 4 times more information than a 50MP image.

Images that resemble
the real world

The epic resolution of 200MP sensors means that your photos become true-to-life, right down to the tiny color pixels and line details.

Epic details,

even when cropped

An ultra-high pixel count means that the details of the image remain even after cropping it.

For example, if a 200MP image is cropped in half, both vertically and horizontally,

then the resulting 50MP image would still have incredibly rich details.

Ultra-fine pixel for
ultra-high resolution

Smartphones have limited space allocated for its camera. Therefore, smaller pixels are needed to be packed into this limited space for a better image. ISOCELL image sensors use an innovative structure that places physical barriers between pixels to better capture existing light. To further improve the image quality, ISOCELL’s pixel technology integrates various add-on upgrades to bring out the best result per individual pixel.

Low light is
not a problem

For better low-light photography, ISOCELL’s ultra-high resolution image sensors are specially designed with pixel binning technology to combine up to 16 individual pixels together into one, which then operates as one big pixel. It helps achieve high-quality photos even in low light conditions.

 Samsung ISOCELL ultra high resolution image sensor's 1x1 mode remosaic technology through pixel binning technology

The 1x1 mode offers the best possible image resolution among three modes through remosaic, capturing even minute details in a scene.

 Samsung ISOCELL ultra high resolution image sensor's 2x2 mode re-arrangement of 4 pixels into one large pixel.

The 2x2 mode rearranges four pixels into a large single one. As part of a 200MP image sensor, the 2x2 mode is optimized for 8K video shooting.

 Samsung ISOCELL ultra high resolution image sensor's 4x4 mode combining 16 pixels into one large pixel.

The 4x4 mode merges sixteen pixels into a large single one. With the 4x4 mode, the images turn out bright even in low-light or dark environments.
