The Galaxy S11 is likely to use Samsung’s new 108-megapixel image sensor Isocell Bright HMX camera. We know a bit about this, but the Korean company has now provided all the details.
Impressive Specifications, Bold claims
It is the first pixel with a high number of pixels phone. It was also the first camera to have a size of 1.33 inches, which is quite large and comparable to many compact cameras. With this size, coupled with its quad-cell technology, which can use quads of pixels, the processor will have excellent light sensitivity.
It has a technology called Isocell Plus Pixel. In this way, each pixel can be isolated with a “new material” layer that Samsung did not disclose. On traditional sensors, photons overflow from one-pixel lens to another light-sensitive pixel, causing noise (called crosstalk) and quality degradation.
It has quaternion technology-commonly called Quad-Bayer filtering. This will group 108+ megapixels to increase the sensitivity of the sensor. When you increase the light-sensitive area by grouping sensor pixels, the camera captures more photons, so images with more light and detail are produced even in low-light conditions.
According to Samsung, Smart-ISO provides “best dynamic range and lower noise.” Automatically activates low ISO when there is sufficient light and automatically activates high ISO when there is insufficient light
They put everything in a video posted yesterday, discovered by SamMobile:
It has what Samsung calls Super Phase Detection. According to Samsung, this means that the sensor will be faster and more accurate in terms of autofocus, even in dim light.
Galaxy S11 main Camera Sensor
Compared to our S10, Samsung may increase the number of pixels of its main Samsung Galaxy S11 camera sensor by 9 times. With all other things being equal, more pixels by themselves will not lead to a better image, because usually, they will become smaller to fit the count and collect less light.
However, with the help of pixel merging or combining the information in multiple pixels into a magic method, not only the size of the generated photo file is smaller, but the snapshot itself can often overcome smaller pixel sizes through some algorithms.
It won’t even be surprising, as there is already a phone on the market that uses a 108MP sensor developed in cooperation with Samsung’s Mi Note 10. The level of detail it captures is impressive, while the softness of the edges is not impressive.
However, Samsung will use it specifically for the Galaxy S11 series and will expand from 2×2 to 3×3 grids in terms of pixel merging. So while phone makers use Sony’s ubiquitous 48MP sensor to take 12MP photos in bin mode, those phone makers that reduced Samsung’s 64MP pixels to 16MP by virtually merging four adjacent pixels use 4x pixel merging, But it is reported that Samsung will use 9 times pixel merging.
Samsung Galaxy S11 Sure winner?
The Galaxy S11 is expected to be released in February, but Isocell Bright HMX (capable of taking 12,032 x 9,024 pixels and a size of 42MB) has already debuted in another phone: Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro.
If the 108-megapixel sensor is indeed the primary sensor in the Galaxy S11‘s four-camera setup, then Samsung seems likely to steal the crown. It definitely has hardware-it will all depend on its software now.
This mid-range phone beats all flagship products for three times its price and is the king of photography in the DxOmark photography benchmark, Huawei Mate 30.
It is expected that Samsung’s ToF attack will even affect its midrange aircraft, so the upward trend of flight time may also raise the Samsung Galaxy S11 ship.
