Samsung fans expect a couple of new ISOCELL camera sensors to be unveiled this year in anticipation of the Galaxy S22 series, and word on the street is that Samsung will be announcing them tomorrow. The company will apparently take the veil off the so-called ISOCELL HP1 and ISOCELL GN5 sensors, though detailed specifications are lacking at the moment.

The ISOCELL GN5 reportedly has a 50MP resolution, whereas the ISOCELL HP1 features a resolution of 200MP. These characteristics sound familiar to anyone who’s been following the news surrounding the Galaxy S22 series, as rumor has it that the base S22 and S22 Plus models should feature 50MP main cameras.

On the other hand, the 200MP sensor might not be planned for release along with a Samsung flagship. There were rumors of the Galaxy S22 Ultra model possibly featuring a 200MP, but this seems more and more unlikely as rumors pile up. If history is any indication, the 200MP ISOCELL sensor could debut with the help of a rival phone, possibly from China.

Of course, there’s also the possibility that the ISOCELL GN5 and ISOCELL HP1 will not be announced tomorrow. Nothing’s official until Samsung says it is, but we’ll find out soon enough. Assuming that the ISOCELL GN5 is coming soon, it will be interesting to hear Samsung’s explanation as to why it jumped from the “GN2” moniker straight to “GN5.” The naming scheme could indicate important upgrades, and we might be in for a pleasant surprise. Stay tuned.
