The Korean giant has reputedly stepped up the mobile camera resolution threshold to further rise this year, as Samsung was the first to launch a 108 MB camera sensor for smart phone users in 2019.
In 2021, Samsung plans to launch a range of new ISOCELL camera sensors, according to noted tipster Ice Universe. The plans also include a camera of 200 megapixels. The report is very straightforward, but the tipster says that a 200MP smartphone camera sensor “coming soon.”
Customers from Samsung asked the company itself last year to create a 200MP sensor. However, the Korean firm did not produce this on schedule because of technical problems in delivering returns. Samsung seems to have resolved these obstacles now and this year it will be launching a 200MP mobile camera.
The ISOCELL image sensor is expected to begin with Samsung’s 200-megapixel ZTE, Axon 30 Pro. The sensor can capture 16K videos and can accommodate 4-in-1 and 16-in-1 pixels for picture noise reduction.
The latest Samsung sensor is 1/1,37 inch long with a pixel number of 1,28 microns as per the new Update.
These leaks follow numerous Xiaomi claims that Samsung supposedly works to launch a 150 MP camera smartphone. The image sensor with 150 megapixels sponsored the 9-in-1 pixel binning and a 1-inch bigger sensor. Of course in Q4 last year this telephone should be launched, which obviously did not happen.
Other sources reported that the camera sensor was 144MP instead of 150 on the upcoming Xiaomi handset. The Mi 10S Pro and Mi CC10 Pro, none of which have been initiated so far, were used for that sensor.
