Samsung explained that its 108MP sensor has a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera. The image sensor comes in a large 1/1.33-inch size, allowing it to absorb more light in low-lit settings than smaller sensors. This helps it churn out large 12032 x 9024-pixel resolution photos, comparable to high-end DSLRs. The large sensor size helps HMX to absorb more light in low-lit conditions.

Smart-ISO helps the sensor intelligently select the right ISO to match the needs of the environment. The HMX sensor is using Samsung’s Tetracell and ISOCELL Plus technologies, so it will be able to generate bright, big-pixel 27MP images. The sensor also supports 6K (6016 x 3384 pixels) video recording at 30 fps.

“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. “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.”

Samsung mentioned that they will begin mass production later this month, which means it won’t be long until we see the Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor inside smartphones.
