Samsung Aims To Develop A 600MP Camera Sensor

Samsung is one of the major players in the field of camera sensor development and manufacturing. It was the first manufacturer to introduce 64MP and 108MP sensors for a consumer smartphones and the company believes this is just the beginning.

*For Illustration Purpose Only*

In an editorial on the company website, Yongin Park, Head of Sensor Business Team at Samsung, revealed the aim in the future is a 600MP sensor that will deliver more detail than the human eye can see.

Yongin Park, Head Of Sensor Business Team at Samsung

According to Park, our eyes are said to match a resolution of around 500MP. The goal of his team is to develop senors that can outdo that, which will be used in many applications outside of the smartphones world.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra with its ISOCELL Bright HM1 sensor, and the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 with the ISOCELL Bright HMX can output 108 MP images, but they are really mostly meant to shoot in their binned 12MP and 27MP modes.

Of course, introducing a 600MP camera sensor on its own can be achieved, but it will be absurdly huge and won’t fit into a smartphone, and that’s where the challenge begins. One way to do it is to shrink the pixel size – the HM1 and HMX sensors have 0.8μm pixel size, which until recently were the smallest available. Then Samsung introduced a sensor based on 0.7μm pixels and it hopes it can take the shrinking further.

Mr Park did not commit to any deadlines, but seeing recent developments a 600MP module might come sooner than we think.

Netflix App New Update

Netflix has just updated its Android app with a helpful feature that will allow users to lock their phones’ screens to avoid accidental touches. Aimed at Netflix users who are watching streams on their smartphones, the new “screen lock” button makes it impossible to interact with the touchscreen until it’s unlocked.

Certainly among the most requested features by Netflix users, the new “screen lock” button is only available in the Android version of the app for the moment (via 9to5google). The button should now show up among the on-screen controls once you start to watch a TV show or movie in the Netflix app.

Once you press it, the entire Netflix UI will disappear. If you touch the screen by accident or on purpose, the button will pop up again, but you will have to press it twice to bring back the Netflix UI once again.

Keep in mind that this is a staged roll-out, so not everyone will get the new “screen lock” button at the same time. However, the new feature should be available to all Android users in the next couple of days.
