Samsung is using the pixel-binning technology to ensure the sensor is able to capture more light, and process them to take brighter photos. This will ensure the camera sensor is able to offer quick auto focus to capture a subject even in low light condition. The GN1 comes equipped with Smart-ISO which can capture images in multiple exposures. Along with electronic image stabilization (EIS), both photos and video shot using the camera will have detail.

More importantly, for video recording, the GN1 offers 8K resolution at 30fps. Samsung is currently developing a 250-megapixel sensor. As per a new report by GSMarena, sources have claimed that the company is working on a 250-megapixel sensor that will be up to an inch-wide diagonally.
