Yesterday, Samsung unveiled its second-generation 50MP ISOCELL GN2 image sensor with large 1.4-micrometer (μm)-sized pixels. The newer image sensor delivers up to 100-megapixel imaging, powerful staggered HDR, improved auto-focusing through Dual Pixel Pro technology, and vivid results through Smart ISO Pro.
Now, as per the latest information, Xiaomi‘s upcoming flagship Mi 11 Ultra may become the first smartphone equipped with Samsung’s 50MP ISOCELL GN2 camera sensor. A couple of days ago, the leaked live images of this upcoming device surfaced online suggesting its triple rear camera setup with a tiny display.
Moreover, the Mi 11 Ultra is rumored to come with a 50MP main lens, a 48MP telephoto camera with a 5x periscope lens, and a 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera. On the front, it may have a 20MP camera for selfies.
On the other hand, the latest GN2 sensor from Samsung features 50MP resolution, 1.4µm pixels, Smart ISO/ISO Pro, Dual Pixel Pro autofocus, and 4-in-1 pixel binning (effectively 12.5MP images with 2.8μm pixels). Moreover, GN2 supports full HD video at 480 frames per second (fps) or 4K video at 120fps.
Though, we recommend you to take this information as a pinch of salt because we still wait for the official confirmation to come. You’ll be updated as soon as something new pops up regarding the Samsung-Xiaomi collaboration for the camera lens.
