Samsung To Officially Unveil 108-Megapixel Sensor on August 12

Samsung has confirmed in a tweet that it will be announcing a new camera sensor on August 12. Samsung’s ISOCELL camera division announced on twitter it would be redefining resolution on the said date. It is expected that Samsung will launch the 108-megapixel ISOCELL sensor. Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled its 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. The 64-megapixel sensor is expected to be soon used in the upcoming Realme and Redmi phones.

The Company’s 48-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor is already being used by many Smartphones, launched this year. However, the brands want to push camera capabilities smartphone photography and use higher resolution sensors. The new 108-megapixel sensor will not produce 108-megapixel shots, instead, it will use pixel binning technology to produce 27-megapixel images. Pixel Binning combines 4 pixels to one, which can provide superb details in the photos.

There’s not much information is available at the movement, but all the details will be revealed once Samsung officially unveils the sensor on August 12.  Details such as sensor size, the technology used, actual resolution, etc, will be announced during the upcoming event. The Bright GW1 sensor and other high-resolution smartphone cameras use a quad-Bayer filter. It’s not currently clear if we can take photos in 108-megapixel mode using Pro Mode, but even if you can, you probably shouldn’t – so far, Quad Bayer sensors have been designed and engineered to shoot at 1/4 of their native resolution, ‘turning’ 4 pixels into one for added detail. The Sensor is said to take images with a resolution of 12032×9024)

The Mi MIX 4 could be the first smartphone to feature Samsung’s 108-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. If Xiaomi sticks to launch the phone on its usual timeline, we could see Samsung’s 108-megapixel sensor this year on the Mi MIX 4, at least in china if not Globally.
