Samsung, the tech giant, is now officially planning to raise this year’s mobile camera resolution threshold. Reports cited a story by noted tipster Ice Universe. It is found saying that in 2021, Samsung aims to launch several new ‘innovative’ ISOCELL camera sensors.
A 200-megapixel sensor is one of the plans as well. The article is very light in-depth, but the tipster notes that “coming soon” is a 200MP camera sensor for smartphones.
More About The Plans By Samsung:
As per the report, there were rumors that last year Samsung had been asked by its customers to create a 200MP sensor itself. They from that time started working on this project. Technical issues with production yield, however, suggest that the Korean company has not been able to produce this on time. It seems that Samsung has now solved those challenges and is all set to launch this year a 200MP camera for smartphones.
It is rumored that with ZTE’s latest flagship, the Axon 30 Pro, Samsung’s supposed 200-megapixel ISOCELL image sensor may debut. And with this, the sensor can capture 16K videos and has 4-in-1 and 16-in-1 pixel binning mode to minimize photos’ distortion. The method of merging the data from pixels into one superpixel is pixel binning, eliminating noise from the image but at the expense of resolution.
Thanks to a tipster known as WHYLAB. Because of it, these details are in the wild, and if we are to believe his reports, the latest Samsung sensor measures 1/1.37 inch and has 1.28-micron pixels. These leaks follow many rumors that Xiaomi has supposedly partnered with Samsung to introduce a 150-megapixel camera smartphone too.
The 150-megapixel camera sensor is also said to have 9-in-1 pixel binning support and a larger 1-inch sensor, as stated by reports. This handset, however, was scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of last year. For different reasons, the launch event did not happen and it is finally here.
Samsung is expecting so much from this upcoming series of smartphones. On the other hand, fans are also eagerly waiting for the last year for the new launches. It is finally going to happen and expectations are that most of the stores will soon be emptied due to the high rate of sale.
We don’t exactly know if the two companies are collaborating together or not, we are highly hoping a new and better technology this time.
