Samsung's new ISOCELL GN1 is capable of capturing 100-megapixel images using the 50-megapixel sensor.
These camera sensors use microprocessors, which are made of biological cells. These processors help in identifying different chemicals and microbes floating in the air but invisible to human eyes.
Samsung also confirmed that is working on other sensors that will be able to register smell and taste.
Reports from China suggest that the sensor will set new benchmarks for smartphone photography, and be launched by May 2020.
Sony is trying its level best to keep up with the demand for camera sensors by smartphone makers.
Spectral Edge said that uses a patented image fusion technology get more colour, detail and clarity in photographs.
As everyone with slight interest in photography would know, a larger sensor often equates to a superior one, and Xiaomi wants you to know that too.
Samsung's 108-megapixel Isocell Bright HMX, its highest megapixel count sensor yet, will make an appearance in four Xiaomi smartphones codenamed ‘Tucana’, ‘Draco’, ‘Umi’, and ‘Cmi’.
If the leaked spec sheet is indeed true, then the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 is shaping up to be a ridiculously feature-packed smartphone.
This is the first-ever image sensor to go beyond 100 million pixels. Samsung will now expand its image sensor offerings from the ultra-high 64MP to 108MP, a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR.
Sony's imaging sensors business helped Sony comfortably make up for the slow performance in the gaming segment to post record profits for Q1 FY20.
The quantum-dot image sensors, built by UK-based Nanoco, are believed to be better and more efficient than traditional silicon diode sensors.
The Samsung Isocell Bright GW1 image sensor uses existing engineering principles to prepare smartphone cameras for next generation implementation.
It may sound gimmicky, but high resolution cameras are here to stay, and offer a plethora of advantages to develop mobile photography.
The next flagship smartphone from Xiaomi is going to be exciting.
