Samsung 108MP camera sensor revealed: Thought 64MP was too much?

Both the companies had earlier teamed up for a new 64-megapixel smartphone that will use Samsung's 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW1 sensor.

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.

Three months after introducing its 64MP ISOCELL image sensor, Samsung has just announced the world's first mobile image sensor that breaks the 100 million pixels barrier.

It seems that Samsung will be making mobile photography a megapixel count contest yet again.

Samsung has officially launched its 108 MP image sensor called ISOCELL Bright HMX today.

Samsung said in a press release that with over 100 million effective pixels, the sensor will produce “exceptional photos even in extreme lighting conditions”. It switches to low ISO in a bright environment to improve pixel saturation and produce vivid photographs and in a low light environment, it switches to high ISO to capture a less noisy and clearer picture.

"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. On top of that it can record in lossless 6K, at 30 frames per second. In October past year, Samsung launched a 48 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM1 and the 32 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GD1 - both being 0.8-micrometer pixel image sensors.

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". It will instead use Tetracell technology to compress 4 neighboring pixels into one, resulting in a theoretically better and brighter picture.

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.
