Samsung ISOCELL Bright HM1 Sensor With 108-Megapixel isocell bright sensor technology

Samsung Unveils 108-Megapixel ISOCELL Bright HM1 Sensor With Nonacell Technology

Above all Samsung 108-megapixel smartphone camera sensor has been launched already with the tag Samsung ISOCELL Bright HM1.

Furthermore ISOCELL Bright HM1 is world’s first 108-megapixel camera sensor to employ the Nonacell 9-in-1 pixel technology to deliver brighter 12-megapixel shots.

If you will compare it to first-gen 108-megapixel ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor, the ISOCELL Bright HM1 employs:

  • Nonacell RGB Bayer pattern colour filter.
  • It also allows 240fps video capture at 1080p,
  • Even more higher analog gain at x48,
  • Furthermore ISOCELL Bright HM1 supports RAW10 & RAW8 output formats too.

Also, the ISOCELL Bright HM1 sensor already made it’s way through Galaxy S20 Ultra. Also giving an amazing performance.

DESIGN AND BUILD

The physical size of the sensor — 1/1.33 inches is quite impressive — but the digital processing part is also top-notch.

Due to ISOCELL Plus technology, the new sensor can combine up to 9 adjacent pixels in a 3×3 array.

This 3×3 array can perform 9-in-1 pixel binning.

Which also creates larger pixel of 2.4micron size for more effective light absorption.

Furthermore ISOCELL Plus technology is also said to reduce:

  • pixel crosstalk
  • optical loss
  • light reflection

While it has improvement in color fidelity and light sensitivity.

On the other hand, Samsung’s older ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor has a quad Bayer array and utilises the Tetracell technology

FEATURES

It is also stated by the comany that Samsung ISOCELL Bright HM1 image sensor can provide “crystal-clear 8K videos at 24(fps)”

Furthermore ISOCELL Bright HM1 uses 0.8 μm pixels, it also takes advantage of Samsung’s Tetracell and Nonacell pixel-binning technologies.

Also the new sensor can mimic a 2.4 μm or 1.6 μm pixel and achieve similar levels of image quality.

Bright HM1 image sensor also comes with Smart-ISO, real-time HDR, and more.

Samsung ISOCELL Bright HM1 Sensor has an effective resolution of 12,000×9,000 pixels.

However this sensor has slightly lower than the 12,032×9,024 pixels resolution of the ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor.

The ISOCELL Bright HM1 also brings RAW8 support as well as 3D HDR (wide dynamic range) support.
