Samsung said in a press release that with over 100 million efficient pixels, the sensing unit will produce “exceptional pictures even in extreme lighting conditions “. It utilizes the Tetracell technology, indicating it’s effectively a 27 MP sensing unit with 1.6 μm pixel pitch.

It includes the Smart-ISO – a system that picks the level of amplifier gains according to the lighting and switched to a low ISO to “enhance the pixel saturation and produce vibrant pictures “. We are unsure how that differs froum present sensing unit technologies, however we think we’ll learn when the mammoth system makes it to an actual phone.

The HMX also supports video recording with complete field of view at 6K (6016 x 3384 pixels per frame) at 30 fps, so it’s excellent news to videographers too.

Mass production of the sensing unit is expected to start by the end of August, so we can anticipate the brand-new Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 to sport the HMX at its launch, likely occurring in October.
