Samsung a while back announced their 200MP camera sensor. However. there was no information on how the sensor would be used or which device it would be used on. Moreover, leaks suggest that the first one would be Motorola To Use Samsung’s 200MP Sensor? Let’s dwell on this leak.
Motorola To Use Samsung’s 200MP
This is quite unbelievable at first because Motorola isn’t really the head of the smartphone camera game. It is usually behind in terms of using huge sensors. This time @IceUniverse suggests that it will be the first one to use it.
We can surely expect that the device would be a flagship to compete with Samsung, Xiaomi and OnePlus.
Xiaomi to also use it before Samsung?
Now, in the second line of the tweet, leaks say that the 200MP sensor will be adopted by Xiaomi in the second half of 2022. Now, this leak is more reasonable in my opinion because Xiaomi really loves putting big numbered sensors on their smartphones.
It’s safe to expect that the Xiaomi phone would easily be a flagship. It might even be a successor of the Mi 11 Ultra.
Samsung will use the sensor in 2023
While many early leaks showed that Samsung will use the 200MP sensor in the S22 series, many reports confirm they won’t. This tweet further adds to the confirmation that Samsung will use its own 200MP sensor in 2023 and allow other companies to use it beforehand.
For the S22 Ultra Samsung will have the following array;
108mp Improved version of HM3 main 1 / 1.33 “0.8 um
12MP 0.6X sony 1/2.55″ 1.4um F2.2 FOV 120
10MP 10X new sony 1/3.52″ 1.12um F4.9 FOV 11
10MP 3X new sony 1/3.52” 1.12um F2.4 FOV 36
I think Samsung wants to use the full potential of the current 108MP before making the switch. Also, Samsung doesn’t want to make the mistakes it made with the S20 Ultra where the 108MP wasn’t doing great. So Samsung want’s to perfect its hardware and software to harness the full might of the 200MP sensor.
