Samsung 108MP sensor should offer high-quality 27MP images
Like Samsung's 64MP camera sensor, the upcoming 108MP sensor is likely to use pixel-merging technology and mosaic algorithm to produce bright 27MP images in low-light environments and highly-detailed 108MP shots with a mind-boggling resolution of 12,032 x 9,024 in brighter outdoor scenarios.
The new imaging sensor should also allow for improved HDR and real 8K video recording.
