Samsung Announces 108 MP Camera Sensor for Smartphones

Image quality and image resolution of smartphone cameras are getting better day by day. The first big deal was made by Sony by making IMX586 sensors which can produce 48 MP images. Flagship phones like Huawei P30 Pro introduced this sensor, but now it is available in budget phones like Redmi Note 7S. To compete with them, Realme is also jumping into the higher pixel game and going to launch their new phone with a GW1 sensor from Samsung which can produce pictures of 64 MP.

But Samsung is taking the battle up after Xiaomi’s announcement, and today the South Korean giant introduced jaw-dropping 108 MP ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor. Samsung will expand its 0.8μm image sensor offerings and to do this they are closely collaborating with Xiaomi Corp.

The sensor size of this camera module will be 1/1.33-inch so it will be able to take images with exceptionally higher detail in extreme low light conditions. Previously mentioned 48 MP lenses normally shoot in 12 MP to produce better images with pixel binning technology. This 108 MP lens also has this technology and the option to click 27 MP images for far better bright and vivid images.

For the video part, this lens is capable to shoot up to 6K resolution (6016 x 3384) in 30 FPS with lossless quality.

While talking about this 108 MP sensor Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi said, “We are very pleased that picture resolutions previously available only in a few top-tier DSLR cameras can now be designed into smartphones,” He is also hopeful to make more improvements over the next generation of camera set up to make the whole experience better for the users.

“ISOCELL Bright HMX is the first mobile image sensor to pack over 100 million pixels and delivers unparalleled color reproduction and stunning detail with advanced Tetracell and ISOCELL Plus technology”,

– Yongin Park, executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics.

Production of this HMX sensors will begin later this month and we are hoping to see this sensor first in the next flagship smartphone of Xiaomi shortly.
