Samsung has announced a new image sensor for mobile phones with a higher resolution than anything comparable on the market. The ISOCELL Bright GW1 is a 64-megapixel sensor that uses the same 0.8μm-sized pixels as Samsung’s current 48-megapixel component, meaning it’ll be a physically larger sensor that can capture more light overall.

The Bright GW1 will produce 16-megapixel images by merging four pixels into one, like how existing 48-megapixel sensors turn out 12-megapixel photos by default. Samsung’s new sensor will also be able to descramble the color filter for full-resolution 64-megapixel shots in good light. Sony’s IMX586 48-megapixel sensor has a similar capability, but Samsung’s doesn’t; today the Korean company is also announcing an updated 48-megapixel part that offers the same feature.

Canon’s new Ivy Cliq cameras join the modern Polaroid fad

Canon’s new Ivy Cliq cameras join the modern Polaroid fad Just like vinyl, instant-print cameras are making a return to the mainstream as people come to realize that sometimes having physical objects is better than ones and zeros on your computer. Now Canon is doubling down on the trend with the launch of its Ivy Cliq and Cliq+ cameras. You’ve seen this formula before, perhaps most famously by Fujifilm’s Instax family. The Cliq cameras are essentially cheap digital cameras with a built-in printer. But rather than sticking ink onto plain old paper, they use Zink paper, a technology invented by Polaroid that uses heat to activate different dies embedded into the paper itself.

Samsung expects its 64-megapixel part to go into mass production in the second half of this year, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the feature show up on spec sheets for late-2019 flagships — particularly if image sensor market leader Sony follows suit.
