A few days ago, Xiaomi announced a smartphone with 108MP camera sensor from Samsung, whose rumors point to the Mi Mix 4. Now Samsung also officially unveiled the new sensor.
The new sensor is the ISOCELL Bright HMX, with 0.8-micron pixels, capable of taking photographs of up to 108MP. It is the first sensor for smartphones that exceed the barrier of 100 million effective pixels. In fact, Samsung places the quality of the new sensor at a height similar to the quality of the images taken with high-end SLR cameras.
In this regard, it is a sensor that not only exceeds the 100 million pixel barrier but is also of a larger size and Samsung notes that the 108Mp sensor has a size of 1 / 1.33 ″. Obviously, you couldn’t miss the Tetracell technology, its adaptation of the pixel binning technique, which combines four RGGB pixels (red, green, green and blue) in one to generate detailed images in low lighting environments. it is being able to take 27MP images.
It is also surprising that this new sensor can capture videos at a maximum resolution of 6K at 30fps, exceeding the common 4K resolution. On the other hand, it comes with smart-ISO technology, which chooses the appropriate sensitivity to the lighting of the scenes, lowering the sensitivity in clear lighting environments and generating elegant images.
Samsung notes that the new sensor will begin mass production at the end of this month. In addition to the Xiaomi phone that will incorporate it, we will also see it in other flagship models that leave now until the end of this year.
