Samsung Electronics has unveiled its new 108 Mega Pixels (MP) Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX mobile imaging sensor. It is first mobile imaging sensor in the industry to go beyond 100 Mega Pixels.
The Samsung 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor is developed with close collaboration between Xiaomi Corp and Samsung.
Samsung 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX Sensor features
- 1/1.33-inch Sensor size
- 0.8μm pixel size
- Tetracell technology which allows the sensor to imitate big-pixel sensors to produce brighter 27MP images
- In bright environments, Smart-ISO mechanism intelligently selects the level of amplified gamins according to the illumination of the environment for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion
- Switches to a low ISO for improved pixel saturation or uses high ISO in darker settings for reduced noise
- The HMX Sensor supports video recording without losses in FOV at resolutions up to 6K (6016 x 3384) at 30fps
The Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor will go in to mass production by the end of August 2019.
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. We are very pleased that picture resolutions previously available only in a few top-tier DSLR cameras can now be designed into smartphones. 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.Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi
