ISOCELL HW optical format will be 1 inch

An insider known on Twitter (X) under the nickname Revegnus has revealed details about Samsung’s future image sensors. It turns out that the company is preparing two sensors with a resolution of 432 megapixels at once!

It seems that numerous tests have long shown that photo quality is not directly dependent on the number of megapixels (Apple can explain this especially well), but Samsung believes otherwise.

The new sensors will be presented as part of the ISOCELL HW line. There will be two models: ISOCELL HW1 and ISOCELL HW2. The resolution in both cases is the same, 432 megapixels, but the diagonal of the sensor is slightly different and, accordingly, the pixel size is different: HW1 – 1/1.05 inches and 0.56 microns, HW2 – 1/1.07 inches and 0.5 microns.

It’s hard to say whether ISOCELL HW sensors will be better than Sony’s inch sensors. If they can capture more light, there may be a breakthrough. But Sony is not sitting idle either.

Revegnus also reported that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will receive a 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN3 as the main one, and the Galaxy Z Fold 7 will use a completely new (and not yet officially presented) HP5 sensor. As the name suggests, the HP5 will be a significantly improved version of the current 200-megapixel HP3.

Insider Revegnus was the first to publish a photo of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 before its release and also described the characteristics of the Exynos 2400, which were then confirmed in Geekbench software.
