The South Korean company has released a new video showing how the Samsung ISOCELL HM3 sensor works. Let’s see what our sensor offers?


A new video has been released for the Samsung ISOCELL HM3 image sensor, which is Samsung’s hugely popular Galaxy s21 family. This 108MP resolution sensor was used only in the Ultra model and was bypassed in other Galaxy models. Today, Samsung came out to highlight the sensor’s qualities and technical features.

What are the features of Samsung ISOCELL HM3?

In the video, the South Korean firm explains how ISOCELL 2.0 works to separate pixels and improve color accuracy. The new sensor has a physical barrier grid that surrounds each of the millions of 0.8 micron pixels to prevent incidents such as color confusion and light leakage, thus enabling sharper photos to be taken.

Samsung also notes that the ISOCELL HM3 sensor uses Nonapixel technology that combines 9 pixels to create a single large pixel that can absorb more light and improve performance in low-light conditions.

Smart-ISO is another technology that contributes to the performance of ISOCELL HM3. Smart-ISO technology was designed to deliver high performance HDR shots in mixed light settings. It achieves this by combining readings from low and high ISO to create a single image with 12 bit color depth. For the right HDR, we can say that Smart-ISO and Apple’s HDR3 technologies are now playing to the top.

Another point that draws attention in this video of Samsung is that it paves the way for the use of ISOCELL HM3 in other phones. You will probably see this sensor on other Galaxy models, even other Android phones, later on.
