Samsung launches 108 million pixel image sensor with Xiaomi

Samsung launches 108 million pixel image sensor with Xiaomi

"Next year you will see on your smartphone: a 10x optical zoom camera and a 108MP camera", the leakster, who has a solid track record when it comes to unannounced Samsung products, shared in a subsequent tweet.

The ISOCELL Bright HMX sounds like Samsung's response to criticisms of the low-light and night time performance of its sensors, a solution that throws more pixels at the problem. This sensor has been introduced in the collaboration with Xiaomi which was announced a few days back.

"For ISOCELL Bright HMX, Xiaomi and Samsung have worked closely together from the early conceptual stage to production that has resulted in a groundbreaking 108Mp image sensor".

In addition to the 64 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1, Samsung has also announced a 48 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM2 image sensor that will also adopt Tetracell technology in low-light environments and a remosaic algorithm in well-lit settings.

Samsung's Smart-ISO mechanism will automatically select lower ISOs in brighter light, and high ISOs in dim shooting situations.

A great end to the weekend; a couple unsettled days this week
High temperatures will be mainly in the 80s to around 90 degrees Friday , and slip mainly to the mid-70s to mid 80s on Saturday . A few showers/storms will be possible Friday evening in western Kansas, but they won't last long, ending before midnight.

For advanced filming, the HMX supports video recording without losses in field-of-view at resolutions up to 6K and 30-frames-per-second (fps). The mechanism uses a high ISO in darker settings that helps reduce noise, resulting in clearer pictures.

Samsung said in a press release that with over 100 million effective pixels, the sensor will produce “exceptional photos even in extreme lighting conditions”.

"As we continue our partnership, we anticipate bringing not only new mobile camera experiences but also a platform through which our users can create unique content", said Lin Bin, co-founder and President of Xiaomi.

The 1/1.7-inch Isocell Bright GW1 sensor is one of the largest on the market, clocking in at around 34% bigger than the 48MP cameras seen on most flagship phones. In fact, it's rumored that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 will be the first device to pack Samsung's new sensor.

Xiaomi has been at the forefront of beefing up camera features in their smartphones and has proven lucrative for Samsung's System LSI business, which makes logic chips.
