The new 108MP ProLight Samsung ISOCELL HM6 sensor comes with NonaPixel Plus technology that promises an upgrade from the traditional 3Sum-3Avg solution to an unprecedented 9Sum readout solution. It improves overall light intake by 123 percent compared to the Samsung ISOCELL HM2 image sensor, as seen on Realme 8 Pro, and delivers extra details to photos. The company claims that low-light pictures of the upcoming Realme 9 series phone will be significantly brighter with better colour reproduction.

The sensor also has an in-built Ultra-Zoom technology that utilizes the HM6 sensor’s with a merging algorithm to create a zoomed-in shot—capturing extra details that result in a high-quality photo experience. Although the company didn’t reveal the handset’s name, we believe it’s the upcoming Realme 9 4G that gets the new sensor.
