After launching a new 64-megapixel camera sensor earlier in May this year, Samsung announced a new 108-megapixel camera sensor a few days ago.
The world’s first 108-megapixel camera sensor for smartphones has been built by Samsung, in collaboration with Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi.
Both the companies had earlier teamed up for a new 64-megapixel smartphone that will use Samsung’s 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW1 sensor. Samsung believes the new, powerful sensor will allow smartphone users to take much better photographs.
In an announcement, Samsung revealed that its new ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor can produce great photographs in ‘extreme’ lighting conditions, thanks to over 100 million effective pixels.
The sensor is 1/1.33-inch in size, allowing it to take in light better with the large surface area.
Samsung will be using its Tetracell technology that combines four pixels as one to help smartphone users take better photos in low-light conditions. The technology can also help minis noise while improving colour accuracy.
