Samsung Has Created the World’s First 108-Megapixel Smartphone Camera Sensor

Samsung has teamed up with Chinese electronics company Xiaomito create the world’s first 108-megapixel camera sensor for smartphones.

Samsung’s “one-of-a-kind mobile image sensor” measures at 1/1.33-inches, rendering it one of the largest smartphone camera sensors ever made. Packing more than 100 million pixels, the sensor excels at low-light photography, especially when coupled with the brand’s Tetracell technology, which groups pixels together to create an overall brighter 27-megapixel image. The incredible pixel count also optimizes video recording quality, enabling 6K (6016 x 3384) video recording at 30 frames per second.

“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. We are very pleased that picture resolutions previously available only in a few top-tier DSLR cameras can now be designed into smartphones,” said co-founder and president of Xiaomi Lin Bin.

According to Samsung, mass production for its ISOCELL Bright HMX 108-Megapixel sensors will begin later this month. There’s no news yet on which phone model this massive sensor will be placed in, so stay tuned for more news to come.
