Samsung is developing a mobile camera capable of reaching 108 megapixels Resolution The company has presented its new image sensor this week ISOCELL Bright HMX for smartphones, which it has developed in collaboration with Xiaomi.
As explained in a statement, it is the first mobile image sensor in the industry that exceeds 100 million pixels. Specifically, the sensor increases the maximum resolution reached by an image sensor of a Smartphone so far, from 64 to 108 MP, which will allow to offer a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera.
With more than 100 million effective pixels that allow extremely sharp photographs rich in detail, the ISOCELL Bright HMX It also produces exceptional photos even in extreme lighting conditions, they say from Samsung. The sensor is 1 / 1.33 inches in size and can absorb more light in low light environments than smaller sensors.
In addition, ISOCELL Bright HMX uses the Tetracell system, which combines four pixels into a larger one, which allows create images with a resolution of 27 megapixels
For bright environments, the camera Samsung employs an intelligent management system of ISO values, adjusting the gain in the conversion of the image to an electrical signal to reduce pixel saturation and produce sharp images. When the light is lower, the ISO values are automatically increased and you get clearer photos.
On the other hand, ISOCELL Bright HMX allows video recording without loss of quality with resolutions up to 6K (6016 x 3384 pixels) and 30 frames per second (fps)
The existence of Samsung's 108 MP sensor had already been revealed last week by Xiaomi, which announced that a brand terminal would make use of the new camera.
To develop this sensor, Xiaomi Y Sa
msung "They have worked closely from the initial conceptual stage to production, which has resulted in an innovative 108Mp image sensor," they explain in the statement.
"We are very happy that the image resolutions that were previously only available on some first-class digital SLR cameras can now be designed on smartphones," says Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi.
The production of the sensor for Samsung's new devices will begin later this month.
