Samsung explained that its 108MP sensor has a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera. The image sensor comes in a large 1/1.33-inch size, allowing it to absorb more light in low-lit settings than smaller sensors.

It is also equipped with pixel-merging Tetracell technology, enabling it to imitate big-pixel sensor, producing brighter 27MP photos.

Meanwhile, its Smart-ISO can intelligently select the level of amplifier gains according to the illumination of the environment for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion. It can switch to a low ISO to improve pixel saturation and produce vivid photographs, as well.

On the other hand, the sensor can support video recording at resolutions up to 6K (6016 x 3384) 30fps for advanced filming.

“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,” Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi, addressed. “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.”

Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX will start its mass production later this month. Meanwhile, Xiaomi will be the first brand to launch a smartphone with this groundbreaking 108MP image sensor.
