3 months ago, Samsung announced the new 108-megapixel ISOCELL Bright HMX smartphone camera sensor. Since then, people have been wondering when the company will use the new sensor on a smartphone.
The first clues about the cameras that used the new sensor appeared in Samsung’s own applications. This device doesn’t necessarily have to be the next year’s flagship Galaxy S11 , but some theories point to this model.
Samsung developed the 108-megapixel sensor and worked with the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi . So far, there has never been such a sensor other than the Chinese manufacturer. We can finally see this sensor on the new Samsung device.
Samsung’s camera application, Samsung Camera, has received a third One UI 2.0 update, with support for 108 MP . The application now supports a total resolution of 12,000 x 9,000 pixels.
On the other hand, the update does not contain any information about the device. So there may not necessarily be said device Galaxy S11. However, when we look at the rumors in the past, the Galaxy S11’s 108 MP camera and 5x optical zoom will see the future claims.
Samsung has never developed a software infrastructure like this for any technology that it would not use in a new device. Probably, thanks to this advanced sensor, Samsung will also improve the quality of photos taken in low light, using pixel stitching technology. In this method, images are brought together to reduce distortion on the screen. The image quality also declines slightly.
Samsung doesn’t give a clue as to when to use this sensor on their phone. Although the biggest candidate is the Samsung Galaxy S11, we have seen in the past that the Galaxy A series was the first to use the new cameras. So it’s hard to say anything right now.
