The new sensor which will power 108-mega pixels is called ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor, and it can click images even in extreme lighting conditions. While I agree most people don't need to display images larger than a true resolution of 8-12 megapixels - for reference, 4K is about 8.5 megapixels - having a high megapixel count has other advantages. However the company didn't clarify whether this 100MP smartphone will have Samsung ISOCELL sensors.
Unlike Samsung's 64MP camera, which was an open playing field, the 108MP sensor seems to have already been promised to a company: Xiaomi.
There is Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) as well that converts the received light into an electric signal according to the illumination of the environment. It further supports up to 6K video recording at 30fps.
The inclusion of 5G will see the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G be able to connect to 5G networks like that of Telstra's, with Optus access possible very soon, too.
"Samsung is continuously pushing for innovations in pixel and logic technologies to engineer our ISOCELL image sensors to capture the world as close to how our eyes perceive them", said Yongin Park, executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics. It was a good illustration of the reach the Chinese smartphone maker has established in the country.
This is Samsung and Xiaomi's 2nd major collaboration related with developing camera sensors. Both the smartphones are now offered in four different colors - Ruby Red, Onyx Black, Sapphire Blue, and the all new Astro White.
There's also news regarding Redmi launching a smartphone with a 64-megapixel camera, which may be launched this week. You can also comment on our MeWe page by joining the MeWe social network.
