Since the launch of the Pixel 6 series, Google has used Samsung’s camera sensors, display panels, modems, and other technical components. And it will do so again with its Pixel series devices in the future. In fact, the startup will use Samsung’s largest camera sensor to date.

According to Ice Universe, Google will include the ISOCELL GN2 camera sensor in the Pixel 8 Pro smartphone. It is Samsung’s largest camera sensor to date, and it was released two years ago. The ISOCELL GN2 has a 1/1.12-inch camera lens with a resolution of 50MP. Except for Samsung, almost all smartphone manufacturers are coming closer to a 1-inch camera sensor on their flagship devices.

The ISOCELL GN2 has 1.4m pixels, which can be increased to 2.8m by using a 4-in-1 pixel splitting method. In comparison, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 200MP ISOCELL HP2 camera sensor has 2.4m pixels after 16-in-1 pixel binning. As a result, the ISOCELL GN2 should perform better in low-light circumstances. Using the remosaic process, the ISOCELL GN2 can also produce 100MP photos.

Samsung’s largest camera sensor can also shoot 8K films at 30 frames per second, 4K videos at 120 frames per second, and Full HD videos at 480 frames per second. The ISOCELL GN2 also has Dual Pixel Pro autofocus for fast, dependable, and precise focusing. It also has Staggered HDR, which consumes 24% less power than standard HDR and can preserve details in the shadows and highlights.
