Xiaomi and Samsung Tease Upcoming Smartphone with 108MP Image Sensor


And this isn't the only exciting news from the launch.

Xiaomi's Redmi sub-brand claims to be one of the first brands in the world to launch with the new 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 sensor. The first is that it will be using Samsung's ISOCELL GW1 64MP image sensor in an upcoming Redmi phone. By default, the sensor has a pixel size of 0.8-micron but with its Tetracell technology, it has a 4-in-1 pixel binning that increases the effective pixel size to 1.6-micron. There is a cross linkage in terms of high ISO where there is poor light in the ambience and low ISO where the environment is very bright.

This will set the stage for continuing chances for scattered showers and storms heading into the weekend as well. By Friday , an upper level ridge is expected to nudge eastward which will stabilize and dry out the atmosphere.


There are plenty of phones with a 48-megapixel camera like the OnePlus 7 Pro, the Redmi Note 7, and the Honor View 20. Compared to the dynamic range of a conventional image sensor, which is at around 60dB (while that of the human eye is typically considered to be around 120dB), the GW1 strives to provide true-to-life imagery. Zoom in on that encircled part...

Unfortunately, Xiaomi did not give any specifics as to which smartphone will come with the aforementioned image sensor as well as tech specs. Now, Xiaomi has just announced that it'll soon launch a phone with a whopping 108-megapixel camera. In some of the previous speculations, we have seen that people are thinking of this device as the Redmi Note 8, which has been due in the market now. It will possibly use the newly announced Helio G90T, MediaTek's first chip to support sensors up to 64 megapixels. "The 1/1.7" sensor features a 1.6μm pixel size and will be able to output 64MP photos with a resolution of 9248 x 6936 pixels, 38 percent more pixels than a 48MP camera and real-time hardware-supported HDR support.
