Samsung’s New Smartphone Camera Technology Will Change Photography Forever
New Delhi: Samsung recently announced ‘industry-first’ camera technology which will apparently revolutionize smartphone photography. The company will join hands with Xiaomi to build a new 108-megapixel image sensor with ‘a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera’ called the Isocell Bright HMX.
Samsung said its ‘one-of-a-kind’ image sensor ‘enables extremely sharp photographs rich in detail’. It has been designed to absorb more light in dim situations than older sensors and is slightly larger than previous designs, allowing it to take better photos in the dark. Samsung’s previous top of the range sensor had a resolution of 64 megapixels, meaning the new device is a significant step up.
‘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 colour reproduction and stunning detail with advanced Tetracell and Isocell Plus technology.
