Samsung yesterday launched the world's first 108-megapixel camera sensor for smartphones in collaboration with Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi. Earlier in the year in May, Samsung launched a 64-megapixel camera and even teamed up with Xiaomi for a smartphone with its 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW1 sensor.

According to the South Korean electronics giant, the new ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor is capable of producing great photographs in 'extreme' lighting conditions. Thanks to its over 100 million pixels, the camera sensor will be able to take extremely sharp photographs that are in detail.

The Samsung new camera sensor comes in 1/1.33-inch size and the HMX can absorb more light in low-lit settings than smaller sensors. The new technology has a pixel-merging Tetracell that allows the sensor to imitate big-pixel sensors producing brighter 27Mp images.

The ISOCELL Bright HMX can record videos at resolutions up to 6K (6016x3384) at 30 fps (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. W 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. "As we continue our partnership, we anticipate bringing not only new mobile camera experiences but also a platform through which users can create unique content."

Xiaomi is set to release an Android device with a 64-megapixel camera sensor which was announced back in May of this year by Samsung. The Chinese tech company has already started to tease the upcoming launch of a new smartphone with Samsung's new 108-megapixel camera sensor.

"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," executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics, Yongin Park, said.

"Through close collaboration with Xiaomi, ISOCELL Bright HMX is the first mobile image sensor to pack over 100 million pixels and delivers an unparalleled colour production and stunning detail with advanced Tetracel and ISOCELL Plus technology."

If Xiaomi eventually launches its Android smartphone with the 64-megapixel camera sensor, it will be the first mobile device to sport such.
