We’ve been following along with Samsung and Xiaomi’s plans to bring a massive 108MP camera sensor to smartphones. The hardware is real and will be appearing in the China-only Xiaomi CC9 Pro smartphone. But that’s not where it will stay.
Called the Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX, the new 108MP sensor is “…the first mobile image sensor in the industry to go beyond 100 million pixels”, according to Samsung. The company reckons the upgrade of its 64MP sensor will put smartphone cameras even deeper into DSLR-bothering territory
At a briefing in China, Xiaomi said it will become the first manufacturer to use Samsung’s brand new 108MP ISOCELL sensor in a smartphone.
