Samsung Electronics is developing a 200-megapixel mobile phone camera, which is expected to be equipped on the Galaxy S23 series mobile phones that will be launched next year.In 2021, Samsung Electronics released the world’s first 200-megapixel mobile image sensor ISOCELL HP1, one of the main components of mobile phone cameras, which converts the light signal entering the camera lens into a digital signal.
Until now, the highest pixel camera on Samsung’s mobile phone is the 108-megapixel camera of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and Samsung’s previously released Galaxy S20 series and S21 series also have 108-megapixel cameras.
The latest news is that Samsung Electronics may install a 200-megapixel main camera in the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which will be released next year, and will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 flagship processor, thus opening the 200-megapixel era.
If Samsung releases the Galaxy S23 Ultra next year with a 200-megapixel camera, it will be the first change to Samsung’s smartphone camera specs in four years.
As camera pixels increase, smartphone manufacturers must improve the performance of key components such as memory, various sensors, lenses, and application processors (APs).
Some experts predict that Samsung Electronics’ rivalry with Apple over smartphone cameras will heat up next, with Apple also planning to release the iPhone 14 in the second half of 2022 with a camera that will quadruple the number of pixels.
