Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) tweeted about a new upcoming flagship Galaxy S11 Plus which will probably come with a 1/ 1.3-inch 108MP custom sensor. This new 108MP camera sensor is exclusively designed and will be superior in quality if compared to the standard ISOCELL Bright HMX chip.
The 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor was originally announced in August 2019 as part of a collaboration between Samsung and Xiaomi but is yet to find its way to any Samsung phone until now. Instead, it was first seen in the recently launched Mi Note 10.
Samsung's Galaxy S11 was earlier rumored to use this 108MP sensor. Rather, Samsung may be reworking its existing 108MP Bright HMX sensor and Galaxy S11 Plus may use this custom image sensor for even better image quality. However, we'll have to wait a little longer to be able to say that with any degree of certainty.
The world's first mobile image sensor to go beyond 100 megapixels, Samsung's 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX is a 0.8μm image sensor with a large 1/1.33-inch size that allows it to absorb more light in low-light settings than standard sensors. Its' Tetracell' technology, which combines pixels, also enables it to imitate large-pixel sensors, producing brighter 27MP images.
