Analysis: Qualcomm just spent $1.4 billion to compete with Apple’s Arm laptops

Qualcomm has agreed to purchase Nuvia for approximately $1.4 billion. The news is music to the ears of Qualcomm’s various partners.

The S21 Ultra’s new 108MP sensor tackles a major issue with S20 Ultra’s camera

  • Samsung Semiconductor has announced the 108MP Isocell Bright HM3 sensor.
  • It’s the main camera sensor on the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
  • It brings improved autofocus performance, 12-bit image output, and better low-light snaps.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra marked the first time that we saw a 108MP camera in a flagship phone (Xiaomi’s Mi Note 10 being a mid-range device), packing an Isocell Bright HM1 sensor.

Unfortunately, it quickly emerged after launch that the S20 Ultra suffered from significant autofocus issues, as it struggled to focus on objects in some scenarios. Fortunately, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is equipped with the new 108MP Isocell Bright HM3 sensor, and it seeks to address some pain points around the HM1.

For starters, Samsung Semiconductor confirmed to Android Authority that the sensor packs a new Super PD Autofocus Plus feature for more accurate autofocus.
