This week, however, a Samsung Galaxy press release confirmed the details, showing just how radical this redesign really is for their flagship smartphone.
A Forbes article had all the details including exactly what makes this camera redesign so radical:
In addition to Samsung’s usual high-end features such as Smart-ISO, real-time HDR, 8K video and electronic image stabilization, the all-new 50-megapixel component, dubbed ISOCELL GN1, offers faster auto-focusing, brighter images and a new 100-megapixel-equivalent high-resolution mode. These specs mark it out as a direct competitor to Sony’s similarly-sized IMX700 sensor currently found in Huawei’s chart-topping flagships....
Perhaps most importantly, ISOCELL GN1 will avoid any repetition of the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s focusing issues, thanks to dual-pixel autofocus on all pixels. Samsung’s announcement puts the GN1’s improved auto-focus speed front and center and that’s certainly no accident. This is clearly an acknowledgment that improvements must be made over its current flagship design.
