Samsung has teamed up with Chinese electronics company Xiaomi to create the world’s first 108-megapixel camera sensor for smartphones.

Samsung’s “one-of-a-kind mobile image sensor” measures at 1/1.33-inches, rendering it one of the largest smartphone camera sensors ever made. Packing more than 100 million pixels, the sensor excels at low-light photography, especially when coupled with the brand’s Tetracell technology, which groups pixels together to create an overall brighter 27-megapixel image. The incredible pixel count also optimizes video recording quality, enabling 6K (6016 x 3384) video recording at 30 frames per second.

“For ISOCELL Bright HMX, Xiaomi and Samsung have worked closely together from the early conceptual stage to production that has resulted in a groundbreaking 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,” said co-founder and president of Xiaomi Lin Bin.

According to Samsung, mass production for its ISOCELL Bright HMX 108-Megapixel sensors will begin later this month. There’s no news yet on which phone model this massive sensor will be placed in, so stay tuned for more news to come.

For more tech news, Huawei has unveiled its HarmonyOS, the company’s response to Android.
