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

Meant for smartphones and mobile devices, it is the result of Samsung's collaboration with Chinese tech giant, Xiaomi, who last month announced plans to launch a new smartphone with a 108MP Samsung 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.

"Samsung is continuously pushing for innovations in pixel and logic technologies to engineer our ISOCELL image sensors to capture the world as close to how our eyes perceive them", said Yongin Park, executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics. A few months ago, it boasted of the mobile industry's first 64 megapixel camera sensor which, ironically, didn't land on any of its phones to date.

Reigning champions City cruised to a resounding 5-0 victory in their opening game against West Ham on Saturday , with Raheem Sterling plundering a hat-trick.

Xiaomi has been forthcoming with its camera ambition- hinting that it will be the first to churn out smartphones with the 108 million pixels ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor. This is the new addition to Samsung's 0.8 micrometer pixel image sensor line up, which is now available from existing 20 megapixel to the new ultra-high 64 megapixel resolutions.

The sensor is 1/1.33-inch in size and has a larger surface area compared to conventional models, so it will absorb light better. Using Samsung's Tetracell technology the sensor can unify four pixels into one, in order to achieve high quality images in low light environments, albeit at a reduced resolution of 16MP. This allows the sensor to optimise its full well capacity (FWC), utilising the collected light more efficiently especially in bright environments. In well-lit settings, it switches to a low ISO to improve pixel saturation and produce vivid photographs, while using a high ISO in darker settings to help reduce noise. The HMX supports video recording without losses in field-of-view at resolutions up to 6K (6016 x 3384) 30-frames-per-second (fps). This partnership isn't entirely surprising given that these two companies recently came together for Xiaomi's 64MP smartphone that incorporates Samsung's 64MP ISOCELL GW1 sensor inside.
