The battle for visual supremacy has been in full swing for years now; most notably, within the realm of camera bodies. But, with handheld devices taking a progressive approach toward greater visual fidelity, it wasn’t long until we were gifted with a mobile sensor that could rival the likes of Canon, Nikon, and Sony’s high-end cameras. Today, Samsung has announced its latest development — a powerful new technology dubbed the ISOCELL Bright HMX.

The company’s ISOCELL Bright HMX was created in collaboration with Xiaomi, a leader in worldwide tech innovation, and brings the industry’s first 108MP sensor to the realm of handheld devices. This one-of-a-kind mobile image sensor will elaborate on Samsung’s previous 64MP resolution, providing users with over 100 million effective pixels, a 1/1.33-inch size, and exceptional low light performance thanks to pixel-merging Tetracell technology. But the sensor’s strengths aren’t solely defined by sparsely-lit conditions — it also houses a Smart-ISO system that adapts to overexposed environments and reduces amplifier gain for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion, bringing it in line with sensors that were once exclusive to top-end camera systems. The ISOCELL Bright HMX mobile sensor is slated to begin production later this month.
