Given the high-resolution 108MP camera system is widely-tipped to be one of the headline features in the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S11, it's really odd to see the Samsung-designed system make its debut in a rival handset.

Samsung's brand-new, pixel-packed 64MP and 108MP camera sensors will make their debut in Xiaomi-built smartphones, the technology companies have confirmed.

Last week Xiaomi said it will be the first smartphone company to bring a phone with a 108MP camera and today Samsung detailed the actual sensor. Images shot with these 48 MP and 64 MP sensors at their native resolution aren't likely to be sharper or less noisy than those shot on 12 MP or 16 MP smartphone camera sensors.

Joshua-Ruiz rematch to take place in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia is now set to organise another major boxing contest having staged Amir Khan's victory over Billy Dib in July. Eddie Hearn of Matchroom will hold a press conference this coming Monday in London , to discuss the details of the event.

The new sensor would be able to absorb more light in low-lit settings and its pixel-merging Tetracell technology would allow the sensor to imitate big-pixel sensors, producing brighter 27MP images.

As for bright lighting conditions, Samsung's new 108-megapixel camera sensor will use the company's Smart-ISO mechanism that helps create more vivid pictures by adjusting the level of amplifier gains based on the ambient light. That sensor did end up on Xiaomi's flagship device so it's not exactly a surprise that the two are announcing a partnership that has given birth to the mobile market's first ever 108 megapixel smartphone camera sensor. The sensor also supports 6K (6016 x 3384 pixels) video recording at 30 fps. "We are very pleased that picture resolutions previously available only in a few top-tier DSLR cameras can now be designed into smartphones", said Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi. Samsung announced its 48MP camera sensor back in May. It showed off the 1/1.33-inch Isocell Bright HMX, developed in collaboration with Xiaomi, on Monday.

The ISOCELL Bright HMX sounds like Samsung's response to criticisms of the low-light and night time performance of its sensors, a solution that throws more pixels at the problem.
