Xiaomi and Samsung Electronics today launched an ultra-high resolution 64MP camera technology, which the Redmi product line will be the first to adopt. The two global technology leaders also jointly announced that they will bring the first-of-its-kind 100MP camera sensor, featuring the highest pixel count and resolution on the market.
Samsungs 64MP debuts on Xiaomis product line
The 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 sensor has high resolving power and uses a remosaic algorithm to produce ultra-clear 64MP shots in bright conditions. With the pixel-merging Tetracell technology, GW1 also delivers bright 16MP images under low-light conditions. Even when the print resolution is 72dpi, it is able to print a large, high quality poster up to 3.26 meters in height. The 1/1.7-inch image sensor is one of the largest so far on the market, ringing in 34% larger than the standard 48MP smartphone cameras seen on typical flagship devices.
Samsungs GW1 sensor also adopts ISOCELL Plus technology, which replaces the original metal barrier formed over photodiodes with an innovative new material, minimizing optical loss and light reflection. Its also equipped with a Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) technology, which converts light into an electric signal based on the ambient lighting conditions. Hence, under brighter conditions it uses a low ISO, and under dim ones it leverages a high ISO to achieve an optimal signal-to-noise ratio in the resulting photographs.
Xiaomi and Samsung jointly launch the worlds first 100MP sensor
Xiaomi debuts Samsungs 100MP sensor to offer smartphones with ultra high-resolution cameras. The 108MP sensor surpasses the 100MP mark for the first time ever in smartphone image sensors. It is also the worlds highest-resolution smartphone camera sensor, capable of producing photos with a resolution of 12032 x 9024 pixels.
Photographers can not only take more detailed photos, but also make better use of their imagination and creativity with this sensor. The 100MP ultra high-resolution camera sensor even maintains a high-quality picture of 27MP in 2x zoom more than doubling the pixels of a standard 12MP telephoto camera.
Moreover, Samsungs 100MP sensor will be the largest smartphone image sensor offered on the market. The notable sensor size enables an ultra-high light input to deliver stellar images in low-light environments.
