The ISOCELL bright HMX is enable to produce exceptional photos in extreme low light and with 100 million pixels it can take sharp photograph rich in detail. The large camera sensor of ISOCELL Bright HMX will absorb more light in low lit settings than smaller sensors. This Sensor is equipped with pixel merging Tetracell technology which helps it to make a big pixel sensor and thus produces 27MP images.


In bright environment  the “smart ISO”, a mechanism that intelligently select the level of amplifier games according to the  illumination of the environment of optimal light to electric signal conversion, switches to low ISO to improve pixel saturation and produce vivid photographs. As per the official statement, “The mechanism uses a high ISO in darker settings that helps reduce noise, resulting in clearer pictures. For advanced filming, the HMX supports video recording without losses in field-of-view at resolution up to 6K [6016 X 3384] 30-frames-per-second (fps).”

Mr. Lin Bin, Co-founder and president of Xiaomi said in a statement that “For ISOCELL Bright HMX, Xiaomi and Samsung have worked closely together from the early conceptual stage to production that has resulted in a ground breaking 108MP image sensor. We are very pleased that picture resolutions previously available only in a few top-tier DSLR cameras can now be designed into smartphones”. He further added, “Through close collaboration with Xiaomi, ISOCELL Bright HMX is the first mobile image sensor to pack over 100 million pixels and delivers unparalleled color reproduction and stunning detail with advanced Tetracell and ISOCELL Plus technology”.
