A new Samsung phone will feature a 108-megapixel mobile sensor, which makes its camera quality similar to a conventional camera. The mobile sensor will be part of Samsung's Xiaomi Redmi phone. The sensor is titled the '1/1.33-inch ISOCELL Bright HMX' and it is the result of development efforts undertaken by Samsung and Xaiomi. The sensor is one of the biggest that has ever been included on a smartphone device. With the new sensor, Samsung will create a new standard for smartphone cameras.
The Samsung Tetracell technology will use light that comes from four different pixels as a default setting. Using the four different pixels to gather light, the camera operates more like a 27-megapixel sensor. However, users will still be able to take 108-megapixel pictures, as long as they operate the camera within a bright environment.
