When it comes to semiconductor technology, Samsung is one of the leading chipset manufacturers. The company is also a key player in bringing innovations to the market. the South Korean based tech introduced its latest 108-megapixel (Mp) mobile image sensor, Samsung ISOCELL HM3.
According to sources, the HM3 can capture sharper and more vivid images in ultra-high resolution with faster auto-focus and extended dynamic range.
“While a pixel is just a single dot of color when in millions, these dots can be transformed into stunning snapshots of life. With more pixels, images are sharper, with fuller details that can maintain their integrity even when enlarged.
Samsung has been at the forefront of bringing the most pixels to mobile image sensors as well as various supporting technologies that take sensor performances to the next level. The ISOCELL HM3 is the culmination of Samsung’s latest sensor technologies that will help deliver premium mobile experiences to today’s smart-device users.”
The Super PD Plus feature allows the HM3 to integrate faster auto-focus. The feature adds AF-optimized micro-lenses over the phase-detection focusing agents, increasing the measurement accuracy of the agents by 50-percent. The enhanced phase-detection autofocusing (PDAF) solution helps to keep moving subjects in sharp focus and delivers optimum results in dark environments.
Its Smart ISO Pro captures frames in both high and low ISO, then merges them into a single image in 12-bit color depth and with reduced noise. By doing so, the HM3 can significantly reduce motion-artifacts. The layout of Samsung’s HM3 is in three-by-three single color structures suitable for nine-pixel binning. The HM3 supports seamless transitions between 108Mp and 12Mp resolutions.
