In other words, 64-megapixel sensor-The ISOCELL Bright GW1 uses the same 0.8μm-sized pixels as Samsung’s current 48-megapixel component.
It’s coming in at 1/1.72-inch, the sensor produces 16-megapixel images, that simply means that It’ll be a larger sized sensor that can capture more light in total, thanks to pixel binning.
Both the sensors are enabled with the technology to merge four pixels into one so that it can produce bright images with a lower pixel count even in low-light conditions. And also provides highly-detailed snaps with a full-pixel count in brighter setups. The Bright GW1 will provide images of 16-megapixel by merging every four pixels into one. It’s just like existing 48-megapixel sensors that turn out 12-megapixel photos.

So you can expect to see spec sheets with 64-megapixel in late-2019 flagships phones. Also Sony which is a sensor market leader can follows the same.
