Earlier this year, Samsung announced its ISOCELL HM3 – a 1/1.33” sensor with 108MP resolution which we saw in action on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Now, we get a new official introductory video that hints the sensor might soon make its way to other flagship offerings from Samsung or better yet flagship phones from other makers.
The HM3 brings 9-to-1 pixel binning with an effective pixel size of 2.4µm. The sensor captures 12-bit images with 12MP resolution in default and features Smart-ISO Pro that upscales HDR content by capturing simultaneous low and high ISO shots to balance out ghosting on moving objects. Video capture tops out at 8K resolution while slow-motion videos can go up to 240fps at FHD resolution.
Given the timing of the new video, Samsung could be hinting at a possible new Galaxy flagship featuring the ISOCELL HM3 or that it will be offering the sensor to other OEMs.
