Samsung’s ISOCELL HP2 is a new 200-megapixel sensor with a specification that precisely matches the circulating rumors about the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s primary camera. The chip is sized at f 1/1.3” and sports 0.6-micrometer (μm) pixels. The Korean tech giant announced the new sensor as it prepares to launch its latest flagship device — the Galaxy S23 Ultra — on February 1st.

High-megapixel sensors are nothing new for Samsung, but the company hasn’t yet crammed anything so pixel-dense into a smartphone chassis, so the news is an exciting development for tech enthusiasts. Last year’s Galaxy S22 Ultra featured a 108-megapixel sensor in its main camera module, meaning the new device will ship with almost twice the resolution.

Larger, high-pixel-count sensors bring tangible image quality improvements if executed correctly, allowing the camera to use “pixel binning” to combine multiple pixels into one, gathering more light and detail. The ISOCELL HP2 will be able to drop every four or sixteen pixels, producing 50 or 12.5-megapixel images, respectively. When it comes to video, the new camera will record 8K clips at 30fps and support 4K HDR at 60fps.

Aside from the raw specs, the ISOCELL HP2 sensor uses a new technology called “Dual Vertical Transfer Gate,” which Samsung claims will help reduce overexposure and improve color replication in bright conditions. Meanwhile, low-light shots will benefit from “Super QPD,” enabling faster auto-focusing.

Samsung says the new 200-megapixel camera sensor has already gone into mass production, and we can’t wait to see sample photos from the flagship smartphone after its February 1st unveiling.

Truecaller, a well-known app for identifying and blocking spam calls, is enhancing its services by allowing users to create AI versions of their voices. The new feature, available to those with access to Truecaller’s AI Assistant, stems from a partnership with Microsoft and its Azure AI Speech tool, allowing the generation of realistic AI voices that accurately mimic users’ speech patterns and tone.

“This groundbreaking capability not only adds a touch of familiarity and comfort for the users but also showcases the power of AI in transforming the way we interact with our digital assistants,” explained Truecaller product director and general manager Raphael Mimoun in a recent blog post.

The AI Assistant in Truecaller screens incoming calls, informing recipients of a caller’s purpose. Based on this information, users can decide whether to answer the call themselves or let the AI Assistant handle it.

When the feature was introduced in 2022, users could only choose from a collection of preset voices. The ability to record one’s own voice represents a significant step towards the complete personalization of the service.

Azure AI Speech, showcased during the last Build conference, only recently added a personal voice feature that lets people record and replicate voices. Microsoft explained in a blog post, however, that Personal Voice is available on a limited basis and only for specific use cases like voice assistants.

To maintain ethical standards, Microsoft’s Azure AI Speech automatically adds watermarks to AI-generated voices. Additionally, a code of conduct requires companies to obtain full consent from individuals being recorded and prohibits impersonation.
