Samsung is trying to change the narratives, working on an image sensor that will surpass the resolution of the human eye.
Human eyes are said to match a resolution of around 500MP, while Samsung is aiming to create a 600MP camera sensor. This may sound impossible but that is exactly what Samsung is up to.
According to Samsung, to create its latest 108MP image sensor, Samsung used its Nonacell technology, which increases the amount of light absorption that pixels are capable of. But for this, Samsung wants to further improve its pixel technology to a point where the company can make a 600MP sensor.
“Samsung is proud to have been leading the small-pixel, high-resolution sensor trend that will continue through 2020 and beyond, and is prepared to ride the next wave of technological innovation with a comprehensive product portfolio that addresses the diverse needs of device manufacturers,”
Samsung believes that in the future, sensors may even be developed that can see microbes not visible to the naked eye.
Samsung is looking into other types of sensors that can register smells or tastes.
“Sensors that even go beyond human senses will soon become an integral part of our daily lives, and we are excited by the potential such sensors have to make the invisible visible and help people by going beyond what our own senses are capable of,”
Samsung is determined to open up endless possibilities in pixel technologies that might even deliver image sensors that can capture more detail than the human eye.
