Samsung on Thursday announced it’s ready to mass-produce a brand new image sensor, one that was rumored for a few weeks. That’s the “industry’s smallest 0.64-micrometer (μm)-pixel image sensor,” the 50-megapixel Samsung Isocell JN1. This might sound like the next-gen camera tech to equip future Samsung flagships, but that’s not quite so. The 1/2.76-inch sensor might be used in future high-end devices, but it’s unlikely to be utilized as the primary camera. Instead, Samsung targets mid-ranged handsets with the JN1, where the sensor could be employed in several positions, including the primary rear camera on the back and even the selfie camera.
