Nowadays, we are pretty observing that the mobile tech companies are working hard and trying their best to include a camera in their smartphones that could give a tough competition to the professional cameras.
As a result, Samsung has now officially announced the world’s first 108MP image sensor for smartphones which is going to take mobile photography to the next level. Samsung has collaborated with the Chinese company Xiaomi to develop the new 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor.
108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor Details
The new 108MP 0.8-micrometre image sensor comes with a pixel size of 1/1.33-inch, this makes it be the first image sensor having such a large pixel size. The large size pixel also enables the image sensor to absorb more light, especially when there are low-light conditions. This means that you can now capture superb photos even in very low-light conditions.
The 108MP image sensor is powered by pixel-merging Tetracell Technology which helps is producing brighter pictures at a resolution of 27MP.
The image sensor will come with Smart ISO feature which allows capturing vivid photos in both conditions of day and low-light. The technology behind this feature is that it intelligently selects the level of amplifier gains according to the illumination of the environment for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion.
In addition to the above, the image sensor supports video recording at up to 6k (6016 x 3384) 30-frames-per-second (fps).
