Xiaomi is now reported to be working on four phones that will integrate the new Samsung 108-megapixel camera sensor. The four smartphones are said to be currently codenamed ‘tucana’, ‘draco’, ‘umi’, and ‘cmi’, and these phones were spotted while digging into MIUI’s Mi Gallery app. The new Samsung 108-megapixel ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor was launched last month, in collaboration with Xiaomi. The two companies worked closely with each other to launch the new sensor, and Xiaomi will be the first company to use this new sensor.
Interestingly, the report says, that none of the devices mentioned are the Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 4. There’s no word on what these phones may be called, and other specifications about them are also not known. The report says that these phones will have the ability to view 108-megapixel images, and may or may not support capturing of 108-megapixel photos. Several OEMs recently introduced the ability to zoom full size 48-megapixel photos, the company could just be bringing that ability for 108-megapixel photos as well.
The new Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor is 1/1.33-inch in size, allowing it to absorb light better with the large surface area. The sensor will use the company’s Smart-ISO mechanism that helps create more vivid pictures by adjusting the level of amplifier gains based on the ambient light. The ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor can capture videos at resolutions up to 6K (6016×3384 pixels) at 30fps. However, other specifications launch dates about them are not known .
