Samsung has announced its most advanced camera sensor ISOCELL HM3. The new sensor, which offers 12-bit color support, has found its place on the Galaxy S21 Ultra flagship for the first time.
It is undoubtedly Samsung that brings the resolution to the top and disseminates it in smartphone sensor races. The company has multiple sensors with a resolution of 108MP and has found its place in many smartphone models. Galaxy S21 Ultra comes with the latest 108MP sensor.
What sensor does galaxy S21 Ultra use?
Since flagship and high-end smartphone models only have a 108MP emphasis, it is difficult to see at first which sensor version it is and it is needed to do a detailed research. For example, the Xiaomi Mi 11 featured a 108MP ISOCELL HMX sensor.
After the ISOCELL HMX, which Samsung is estimated to have customized for its customers, the Galaxy S21 Ultra also came during the ISOCELL HM3. ISOCELL HM3 was first used in the Galaxy S21 Ultra model, and samsung’s official statement also came.
ISOCELL HM3 actually has similar features to HMX in many senses. The sensor size of 1/1.33 inches and the pixel size of 0.8 microns are the same. It can shoot continuously at 10fps at 108MP resolution.
In addition, in Full HD resolution, the HM3 sensor can reach a speed of 240fps. It can reach 68 billion colors with 12-bit color support and supports RAW 10 as well as RAW 8 and RAW 12 formats.
Another advantage is with the NonaCell sequence. On the HMX sensor, tetracell solution 2×2 pixel array 4×4 can achieve detailed visuals at 27MP resolution. NonaCell can make the 2×2 array 6×6. This results in much sharper visuals and zoom at 12MP resolution.
ISOCELL HM3 again stands out for its higher bandwidth, better automatic ISO setting and progressive HDR solutions than its successor. The Xiaomi boss had stated that the 108MP camera would play to the top in DxOMark tests. With the Galaxy S21 Ultra model we will probably see a head-to-head result.
