In what can be described as a technology foresight and bid to keep serving its consumers well, Samsung Electronics, today, August 12 2019, unveiled a 108 megapixel (Mp) Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor.

CobraReview gathered that the Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX is the first mobile image sensor in the industry to go beyond 100 million pixels. With this latest addition, Samsung will expand its 0.8μm image sensor offerings from its recently announced ultra-high 64Mp to 108Mp, a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera.

Consumers will find the new product innovative as it’s a one-of-a-kind mobile image sensor and is the result of close collaboration between Xiaomi Corp. and Samsung.

With over 100 million effective pixels enabling extremely sharp photographs rich in detail, the ISOCELL Bright HMX, CobraReview further gathered, is said to produce exceptional photos even in extreme lighting conditions, as well as absorb more light in low-lit settings than smaller sensors.

Speaking on the new product, the Executive Vice President of sensor business at Samsung Electronics, Yongin Park said the ISOCELL Bright HMX is a reflection of samsung’s push for innovations.

“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,”

“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.”

Also speaking, co-founder and president of Xiaomi, Lin Bin said he is pleased with the latest invention and promised to continue their partnership that will bring new mobile camera experiences with Samsung.

“For ISOCELL Bright HMX, Xiaomi and Samsung have worked closely together from the early conceptual stage to production that has resulted in a ground-breaking 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.”

“As we continue our partnership, we anticipate bringing not only new mobile camera experiences but also a platform through which our users can create unique content,” he said.

Recalled that Samsung first announced its ISOCELL technology in 2013, which reduces color-cross talk between pixels by placing a physical barrier, allowing small-sized pixels to achieve higher color fidelity. Based on this technology, Samsung introduced the industry’s first 1.0um-pixel image sensor in 2015 and 0.9-pixel sensor in 2017. In June 2018, Samsung introduced an upgraded pixel isolation technology, the ISOCELL Plus

Mass production of Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX is said to begin later this month.
