Samsung Launches 108 Megapixel Image Sensor for Smartphones

Samsung Electronics has launched its 108 megapixel Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX. Samsung said that its recently launched product is the first mobile image sensor in the industry to go beyond 100 million pixels.

Samsung ISOCELLWith the latest addition, Samsung further expands its 0.8μm image sensor offerings from its ultra-high 64Mp to 108Mp, a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera.  The latest image sensor is the result of close collaboration between Xiaomi Corp. and Samsung

With over 100 million effective pixels enabling extremely sharp photographs rich in detail, the ISOCELL Bright HMX also produces exceptional photos even in extreme lighting conditions. Being the first mobile image sensor to adopt a large 1/1.33-inch size, the HMX can absorb more light in low-lit settings than smaller sensors and its pixel-merging Tetracell technology allows the sensor to imitate big-pixel sensors, producing brighter 27Mp images.

In bright environments, the Smart-ISO, a mechanism that intelligently selects the level of amplifier gains according to the illumination of the environment for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion, switches to a low ISO to improve pixel saturation and produce vivid photographs. The mechanism uses a high ISO in darker settings that help reduce noise, resulting in clearer pictures. For advanced filming, the HMX supports video recording without losses in field-of-view at resolutions up to 6K (6016 x 3384) 30-frames-per-second (fps).

Yongin Park, executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics, commented, “Through close collaboration with Xiaomi, ISOCELL Bright HMX is the first mobile image sensor to pack over 100 million pixels and delivers unparalleled color reproduction and stunning detail with advanced Tetracell and ISOCELL Plus technology.”

Mass production for Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX will begin later this month.
