Samsung teams with Xiaomi to launch 108MP mobile sensor

Samsung ISOCELL 108MP

This is a very high resolution for camera phones but Samsung says it will is also able to produce high quality 27-megapixel images by combining groups of four pixels into one in process known as pixel binning.

Remember the 108MP Samsung sensor that Xiaomi was teasing last week for one of its upcoming phones?

The Chinese company has taken a deliberate lead in this unusual arrangement; its South Korean partner will not apparently implement the sensor into its own products until 2020, starting with the Samsung Galaxy S11.

The South Korean tech giant revealed it will start production of the industry's first mobile image sensor with over 100 million pixels, dubbed as ISOCELL Bright HMX. This allows the sensor to intelligently select the level of amplifier gains according to the illumination of the environment for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion.

The sensor also supports video recording without losses in field-of-view at resolutions up to 6K at 30-frames-per-second.

Forty-nine-year-old Julianne March of Waukesha , Wisconsin, faces an August 29 initial hearing after being charged Thursday. Feeling frustrated, passenger Aaron Scherb took to Twitter to call out the carrier for their employee's risky behavior.

Samsung confirmed that the new sensor has 0.8 micron pixels or photo-sites - the same size as current 48MP and 64MP cameras.

The 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor will be in mass production later this month.

Through collaboration with Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi, Samsung Electronics has developed a powerful camera sensor for mobile devices which is equivalent to that of a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera for professional use.

We also speculated that the sensor would need to be bigger than the former high-res champion-Samsung's 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1-and we were right there, too.

Samsung had previously introduced the 64Mp ISOCELL Bright GW1 in May 2019, created to capture sharp and bright pictures in any light setting using Tetracell and 3D HDR technology. That means in well-lit scenarios, photos should feature increased pixel saturation and brighter, more vivid colours, while in low-light shots, the Bright HMX can produce pics with less noise and graininess. We might see more detail from the 108MP snapper when the sun goes down, but only testing will tell.
