techno.rentetan.com – Samsung has been reportedly working on a 200-megapixel camera sensor, which could be seen on the Galaxy S22 Ultra in 2022 and also on a number of other equipment from different manufacturers if rumors go by.
The most recent rumours comes from China’s IT Home (via PhoneArena), which displays Weibo posts from the Ice Universe and Digital Chat Station serial leakers. The sensor is said to have 1.28μm pixels, to have 1/1.37 inch and to be announced this year at some point. The pixel connection technology is also used and 16K video recording can be supported.
Samsung has already announced that a sensor of 108 megapixels is available with 0.8 μm pixels and in February 2021 a sensor of 50 megapixels has 1.4 μm pixels. The 108-megapixel sensor is located on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, so the following high-resolution camera sensor would not be a major shock.
In a tweet from its Exynos account, the company also mentioned a 200-megapixel sensor, with reference to the Exynos 2100 chip. With a multi-camera setup the processor can support up to a 200-megapixel sensor.
Although the first Samsung device is not likely to use the 200-megapixel sensor until the S22 Ultra, there are some others who work with Samsung on their devices. China’s Xiaomi and ZTE manufacturers are said to have been in talks with Samsung on their respective 200 megapixel smartphones.
