Starting from the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Samsung has used three generations of 100-megapixel cameras in a row, and this situation is expected to be leaked on next year’s Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
According to reports from BK, ETN, etc., Samsung Electronics and Samsung Electro-Mechanics are already in the final stage of completing the 200-megapixel camera module. Although no final decision has been made, it is clear that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is very likely to use this set of gimmicky components to increase its selling point.
Samsung’s move is likely also in response to Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro in the fall, its main camera will undergo the first major change in seven years, from 12 megapixels to 48 megapixels.
In fact, last year Samsung released its first 200-megapixel mobile phone sensor ISOCELL HP1, with a single pixel of 0.64μm, supporting ChameleonCell pixel fusion technology, and shooting 8K 30-frame video.
In addition, it is reported that the second-generation 200-megapixel CMOS HP3 is also under development. According to Samsung’s practice, even with the same pixels, the external sensor will be slightly behind the style of its own flagship mobile phone.
Don’t underestimate this 200 Megapixel CMOS. In order to drive it to work well, the lens, mobile phone core processor, memory chip, etc. must be upgraded accordingly, which can be said to affect the whole body.
