Samsung today unveiled the much anticipated ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor, the first of 108MP for smartphones. This sensor was the result of a partnership with Xiaomi, who will most likely be the first manufacturer to integrate this sensor into their smartphones.
"Through an important collaboration with Xiaomi, ISOCELL Bright HMX is the first sensor for smartphones with over 100 million pixels. Delivers unrivaled color reproduction and impressive detail with advanced Tetracell and ISOCELL Plus technology"said Yoingin Park – Vice President of Sensing at Samsung Electronics.
Impressive 108 megapixel sensor specifications
Like the 64MP sensor, it also comes with a 0.8μm sensor. However, this is a much larger 1 / 1.33 "sensor, being the first to reach these dimensions.
Thanks to its size, it can capture photos with incredible 12.032 x 9.024 resolution, which can be compared to some high-end DSLR cameras. With these dimensions, the sensor also ensures high light absorption, which results in high quality photographs even in low light environments.
The HMX comes equipped with Smart-ISO functionality, which uses artificial intelligence technology to be able to select with stunning accuracy the ideal ISO for any type of environment. To ensure the best quality in low light environments, the sensor takes advantage of Tetracell and ISOCELL Plus technologies for 27MP photos.
Finally, in the video segment, you will surely be surprised to be able to record in 6K (6016 x 3384) at 30fps.
Will Mi Mix 4 be the first with this sensor?
Now that it has been confirmed that Xiaomi will be the first to use this 108MP sensor, we can only speculate which smartphone to choose.
During the last few weeks, there have been many rumors and leaks about one of the most anticipated smartphones of today, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4. This will most likely be the best smartphone ever made by the brand, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the integrated 108MP sensor.
Given the mass production of the new Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX, it does not seem impossible that Xiaomi can still integrate it into the anticipated Mi Mix 4.
