Samsung on a low start before the announcement of the 108 megapixel sensor
The camera in a smartphone is, perhaps, the area where the arms race is developing most dramatically. A lot of those manufacturers who want to seize the palm in this area.
Undoubtedly, in this situation, advertising moves in the form of disturbing consciousness of the number of megapixels will pour on consumers.
Xiaomi was the first to launch a storm of user consciousness this week with a special press event dedicated to the imminent appearance in the Redmi smartphone of a camera based on the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor.
It was also said that this year another breakthrough awaits us – a sensor with a resolution of more than 100 megapixels.
To arrange a "revolution" should Samsung. And a message came that tomorrow, August 12, the company will introduce a new sensor. According to network sources, we are talking about a 108 megapixel sensor.
The resolution of the images should be 12032×9024 pixels and in conditions of insufficient external lighting 27 MP frames will be obtained. Most likely, the principle of operation of the new sensor will be similar to those algorithms that were implemented in 48 megapixels and 64 megapixel sensors: small neighboring 4 pixels will be combined into one large one.
It is expected that the first 108 megapixel sensor will receive Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 and this year it will be the only smartphone with such a camera.
