Samsung has officially announced its new 108-megapixel image sensor – the week after it had already been revealed by Xiaomi. Even more curiously, the sensor will debut in a Xiaomi camera phone before it makes its first appearance in a Samsung product – the Samsung Galaxy S11. 

The Samsung Isocell Bright HMX is the first mobile image sensor to exceed 100 million pixels – offering resolution equivalent to a high-end full-frame or medium format camera.
