With 200 megapixels, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra stands out as the new Android king. For the first time, Galaxy’s primary camera is outfitted with a Samsung HP2 sensor, measuring 1/1.3 inches and supporting OIS optical image stabilization. The camera sensor technology makes the Ultra distinct from other Galaxy S23 series that were announced together.

To further make the device stand out and unique as before, Samsung today announced the introduction of the ISOCELL HP2 to the Galaxy S23 Ultra to help users capture epic detail for stunning photos, even in challenging conditions. Now, let’s take a look at the biggest sensor light-absorbing pixel of the ISOCELL HP2.


The pro-grade camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra is outfitted with the ISOCELL HP2 image sensor, which uses cutting-edge technology to enable even more detail regardless of the setting. Every moment can be captured in high definition; quick autofocus makes it simple to catch movement in a photo, and Tetra2pixel technology enables 8K films with a wide angle.

The new image sensor produces unmatched pictures whether the subject is moving, there is little light, or there is a blazing sun. In every setting, enjoy sharp resolution, bright colour, and outstanding photo quality. With the ISOCELL HP2, a 200MP image sensor, Samsung has crammed the largest sensor, the most light-absorbing pixel, and various cutting-edge technology into a single pro-grade camera.

Even in difficult lighting situations, the ISOCELL HP2 image sensor enables customers to capture breathtaking detail for their images. With 200 million pixels, it is the largest sensor ever found on a Galaxy smartphone, and its 200 million pixels enhance each pixel’s ability to display colour.

In addition to having higher megapixels, the improved pixel structure, pixel binning technology, quick focusing, and HDR features allow any user to capture amazing content and minute detail in a range of settings, providing an exceptional shooting experience.

Capturing in Dark Environments

The Galaxy S23 Ultra’s Nightography features have made it easier for consumers to take pictures in low-light conditions. The image signal processing technology in the Galaxy S23 Ultra uses artificial intelligence to modify the stored data on the image sensor to enhance the colour tone and image quality.

Additionally, the ISOCELL HP2’s Tetra2pixel technology is an important enabler of the improved Nightography capability.

The ISOCELL HP2 blends nearby pixels into one in low-light situations, enabling it to function as a single 2.4um-sized pixel with 12MP for capturing more light in a single pixel. This innovation makes pixels more sensitive to light, enabling the Galaxy S23 Ultra to take noise-free, better low-light images.

A New Improved Autofocus

On the Galaxy S23 Ultra, the ISOCELL HP2 uses Super QPD technology for quicker autofocus to capture fast-moving scenes with clarity. As opposed to only 3% of pixels in its 108MP predecessor, Super QPD uses every pixel for phase detection.

As a result, 200 million pixels are used for focusing agents — taking auto-focusing to the next level. Each micro-lens covers four adjacent autofocus pixels, which allows the sensor to detect movement both in horizontal and vertical directions.

Enjoy Cinematic Experience

The Galaxy S23 Ultra can take detailed 4K and 8K films with the ISOCELL HP2, giving viewers a cinematic experience. The Galaxy S23 Ultra can take 8K video with rich, clear colours and a wider angle than its predecessor by using the ISOCELL HP2 in its 50MP mode, which combines four pixels into one huge pixel with Tetra pixel technology.

Overall, by providing consumers with a range of resolution options, the ISOCELL HP2 within the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which was specifically created using Tetra2pixel technology, assures the highest level of quality. It creates one pixel out of up to 16 separate ones, which functions as one large pixel.

As a result, the ISOCELL HP2 sensor offers 200MP, 50MP, and 12MP output options, enabling users to adjust resolution by their demands. The ISOCELL HP2 creates a 12MP image by combining 16 pixels into one large pixel in its default mode. When you require an ultra-high-quality photo, you can use the ISOCELL HP2’s 200MP mode to get a picture with lots of fine details.
