Samsung just announced the 200MP camera that will debut on the Galaxy S23 Ultra just a few weeks before the complete launch. Just Samsung’s newest ISOCELL camera is the HP2, which replaces the 200MP HP1 that was introduced last year but was never integrated into any Samsung handsets.

Samsung claims that the HP2 has a 200MP camera with the same size sensor as its previous “Ultra” flagships, which have 108MP cameras.

The ISOCELL HP2 packs 200-million 0.6-micrometer (μm) pixels in a 1/1.3 optical format, a sensor size that is widely used in 108MP main smartphone cameras. This enables consumers to enjoy even higher resolutions in the latest high-end smartphones without larger camera bumps in their devices.

Just recently Similar to more recent high-megapixel smartphone cameras, the 1.13-inch sensor uses pixel binning to create final images with reduced resolution that are crisper and of higher overall quality. According to Samsung, HP2 can produce 8K video at up to 33MP and 1.2m 50MP or 2.4m 12.5MP still photos. As Samsung has hinted, the 4-16 pixel binning method ought to deliver excellent low-light performance.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will reportedly be able to employ a full 200 million pixels of the 200MP camera sensor for autofocus in low-light images, which will reportedly improve autofocus performance.

In low-lit settings, the HP2’s auto-focusing is taken to the next level with Super QPD, which allows the sensor to use all its 200-million pixels for focusing agents. The ample amount of focusing agents are grouped by four adjacent pixels to recognize both horizontal and vertical pattern changes that delivers faster and more accurate auto-focusing. Utilizing the rich pattern data along with the sheer number of reference points, the new sensor is capable of fast auto-focusing, even in a dimly lit environment.

According to Samsung, the HP2’s innovative “Dual Vertical Transfer Gate (D-VTG) technology” would improve colors in bright lighting and lessen washed-out images.


While Samsung doesn’t expressly state when this sensor will launch, the company does report that mass production is in progress. That doesn’t seem like a coincidence given that the Galaxy S23 Ultra is scheduled to release in a matter of weeks. Samsung’s upcoming flagship is accepting reservations with up to $100 in bonus credits, and the launch event is slated for February 1.
