Samsung announces World's First 108MP Mobile Camera Sensor in collaboration with Xiaomi”

Commenting on the Launch the, Lin Bin, who is the co-founder and president of Xiaomi said that, "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".

Samsung Isocell Bright GW1, the camera sensor - a successor to the 48MP variant unveiled last October - is created to produce ultra-crisp 64MP shots in bright conditions, with the sensor switching to pixel-merging Tetracell technology in tough, low-light conditions to salvage details from the gloom for a 16MP image.

The sensor also employs real-time HDR of up to 100dB (decibels); in comparison, Samsung says, conventional image sensors are capable of around 60dB, while the human eye is capable of around 120dB of dynamic range.

The sensor also has a 'Smart-ISO' technology that intelligently selects the level of amplifier gains according to the illumination of the environment for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion.

The 1/1.7-inch Isocell Bright GW1 sensor is one of the largest on the market, clocking in at around 34% bigger than the 48MP cameras seen on most flagship phones.

Samsungs Executive Vice President of sensor business - Yongin Park said that Samsung is continuously pushing for innovation in pixel and log technologies to engineer their ISOCELL image sensor.

In addition to the 64 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1, Samsung has also announced a 48 megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM2 image sensor that will also adopt Tetracell technology in low-light environments and a remosaic algorithm in well-lit settings.

Currently, the two new image sensors are being sampled and are expected to see a mass production in the second half of this year. The Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX is a 108MP sensor for smartphones that comes as a result of a close collaboration between Xiaomi. Based on this technology, Samsung introduced the industry's first 1.0um-pixel image sensor in 2015 and 0.9-pixel sensor in 2017. Just in the recent past, an increasing number of OEM including Xiaomi, Samsung, Oppo, Huawei - have incorporated 48 megapixel camera in some of their smartphones.
