Samsung launches 108 million pixel image sensor with Xiaomi

Xiaomi Samsung Camera Sensor

South Korean tech giant Samsung in partnership with Chinese handset maker Xiaomi on Monday launched a 108MP mobile image sensor called "Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX".

Given the high-resolution 108MP camera system is widely-tipped to be one of the headline features in the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S11, it's really unusual to see the Samsung-designed system make its debut in a rival handset.

Samsung has just announced the world's first mobile camera sensor that goes beyond 100MP.

Samsung confirmed that the new sensor has 0.8 micron pixels or photo-sites - the same size as current 48MP and 64MP cameras. Further, Smart-ISO helps the sensor intelligently select the right ISO to match the needs of the environment.

The sensor is 1/1.33-inch in size and has a larger surface area compared to conventional models, so it will absorb light better.

"Through close collaboration with Xiaomi, ISOCELL Bright HMX is the first mobile image sensor to pack over 100 million pixels and deliver unparalleled colour reproduction", said Yongin Park, Executive Vice President of Sensor Business at Samsung Electronics. The mechanism would use a high ISO in darker settings to produce clearer pictures.

Samsung's latest smartphones have been criticized for inferior low-light performance compared to the Huawei P30 Pro and other models that use Sony chips. The ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor can capture videos at resolutions up to 6K (6016x3384) at 30 fps (frames per second). We are very pleased that picture resolutions previously available only in a few top-tier DSLR cameras can now be designed into smartphones. The HMX sensor is using Samsung's Tetracell and ISOCELL Plus technologies, so it will be able to generate bright, big-pixel 27MP images.

According to reliable tipster Ice Universe the newly-announced Galaxy Note 10 will be the last flagship smartphone from Samsung with the previous generation of camera technology, with the Galaxy S11 marking "a new beginning". In October previous year, Samsung launched a 48 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM1 and the 32 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GD1 - both being 0.8-micrometer pixel image sensors.
