The ISOCELL HP1 is a 200MP image sensor debuting next month on the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra
Lee added that “as exciting as it was, the challenge was demanding, as this was the first time we showed the quality of an image sensor that has yet to be applied in smartphones.” The team notes: “Choosing a cat as the subject was a difficult decision. It gave us many hurdles to overcome, such as capturing such an active subject with a test board. However, the team concluded that the subject had to be something that would show off a high level of detail and that was a popular photography subject at the same time.”

Considering his opinion, photographer Hyunjoong Kim said: “I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the raw image enlarged to 100%. I was really amazed at the level of detail. It was then that I knew what preconceptions I had had before regarding smartphone photography was proven wrong.” The canvas consisted of 12 separate pieces of fabric, each weighing eight-feet-long pieces of fabric (about 7 and a half feet each) that were sewn back together.
The image of the cat was transported by truck and a crane was deployed when it was time to unfold the image on the side of a building. Once the task was completed, the Samsung project lead commented, “As the photo unfolded for the big reveal, I really noticed its sheer size, and not just because of its actual size. The moment I witnessed With the 200 million pixels covering the stunning detail of the cat’s eyes and fur, I was blown away by all the effort that went into developing this final product.”
And if all goes according to plan, consumers will get their first chance to use a camera backed by Samsung’s 200MP image sensor when the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra launches next month.
