Samsung announces the world's first mobile image sensor that exceeds 100MP

"Starting from S11, Samsung camera will be a new beginning", tweeted always-on-the-money leakster Ice universe.

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 fist ever image sensor to go beyond the resolution of a 100 million pixels. 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.

It seems that Samsung will be making mobile photography a megapixel count contest yet again.

Samsung didn't mention which phone the Isocell Bright HMX would appear in first, but the collaboration suggests it'll be a Xiaomi. "The sensor size has been increased to 1/1.33" which will be first for a smartphone which will help it to absorb more light in low-lit conditions.

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, would switch to a low ISO to improve pixel saturation and produce vivid photographs. The HMX supports video recording without losses in field-of-view at resolutions up to 6K (6016 x 3384) 30-frames-per-second (fps). "We are very pleased that picture resolutions previously available only in a few top-tier DSLR cameras can now be designed into smartphones", said Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi. We are not sure how that differs froum current sensor technologies, but we guess we'll find out when the mammoth unit makes it to an actual phone.

With its Tetracell technology, the sensor can merge four nearby 0.8-micron pixels to create a bigger 1.6-micron pixel size that allows better image capture in challenging situations.

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