Hacked photobooth with 200MP ISOCELL image sensor – Samsung Global Newsroom
The image sensor is the key component of a smartphone that determines the quality of photos and videos. Have you ever wondered about the use of 200MP image sensors in cutting-edge smartphones like the Galaxy S23 Ultra? The reason is that ultra-high resolution image sensors allow you to capture your epic moment in epic detail. To prove it, Samsung decided to hack the least advanced photo booth in town with a 200MP image sensor and take over one of the most iconic billboards in the world.
Samsung has created a specially designed photo booth at a historic location and installed a 200MP moving image sensor in the camera so people can see for themselves how powerful ISOCELL sensors can be and just how photos taken with these sensors can be detailed. At Piccadilly Circus in London, the photo booth offered those taking photos a printout that read, “Look up.” As they left the photo booth, they saw the ultra-high resolution photo of themselves displayed on an epic 45 by 18 meter billboard at Piccadilly Circus. Remarkably, when the photos were enlarged on the billboard, they showed 200MP photo quality — all the realistic details of their eyes, hair and skin.
