ISOCELL HM1

Next-generation image sensor that changes mobile photography

With ISOCELL Plus pixels, the ISOCELL HM1 delivers top-tier 108Mp resolution.
Nonapixel allows for the virtual transformation of pixels, enabling superior performance, while Smart-ISO optimizes dynamic range.

108 Million Pixels

Redefining detail and definition

The ISOCELL HM1 is enabling the finest detail mobile photography has to offer. Incorporating 108Mp (108 million pixels) into each individual picture, the solution produces intricately detailed images that are so well-defined that photos remain sharp and crisp even when zoomed in on or cropped. Employing small, 0.8um-sized pixels, the ISOCELL HM1 features a larger 1/1.33-inch size, which improves the light absorption properties of the sensor, making it better equipped for low-light photography than smaller sensors and rendering it an optimal choice for those looking to take professional-grade photographs.

Nonapixel

Small pixels for detail,
big pixels for brightness

Pixel transformation technology has reached the next stage of its evolution. Following the success of Tetrapixel, Samsung has taken the technology further with state-of-the-art Nonapixel, which combines groups of nine pixels into effective 2.4um pixels, more than doubling the light absorption capabilities of Tetrapixel. While advanced pixel-binning usually causes increases in color interference, Nonapixel was able to be realized through the adoption of ISOCELL Plus technology, which dramatically reduces crosstalk, optical loss and light reflection. The HM1’s Nonapixel and 108Mp technology enable direct pixel conversion, which means that shots taken with up to 3X zoom retain high, 12Mp image quality.

Smart-ISO

Intelligent ISO caters to variable environments

Let intelligent systems select the optimal ISO for your shot. Native ISO determines how sensitive image sensor is to light, with high native-ISO being better suited to low-lit settings and low native-ISO working better in bright environments. While a fixed native ISO has its limitations from fixed sesitivity, the ISOCELL HM1 employs Smart-ISO technology which combines one low ISO and one high ISO. Smart-ISO technology allows the sensor to deliver optimal dynamic range and less noise by intelligently selecting the appropriate native-ISO for the specific lighting conditions.

ISOCELL Plus

Maximizing performance
with pixel isolation

Experience outstanding quality with tiny, powerful pixels. While ISOCELL Plus continues to isolate individual pixels in order to allow more light to be gathered by the micro-lens, the new technology replaces the minute metal barriers between pixels with an innovative new material that further reduces optical loss and light reflection. Optimal for small pixel solutions, and delivering improvements in color fidelity and light sensitivity, ISOCELL Plus offers a highly advanced solution for the next generation of high-resolution photography.
