Samsung just confirmed that there are even crazier news than having a 200MP camera sensor inside a smartphone. And if you think the camera inside the Sony Xperia Pro-I is impressive, wait to till hear what Samsung is offering.
At a webinar organize by TECNO Mobile, tagged “Stop At Nothing” to “Capture Everything”, Samsung has confirmed that a 600MP camera sensor for smartphones is in the works. This means the Korean Tech Giant is working on a 600MP camera for smartphones.
This confirms the rumor that first surfaced back in 2020 about the company’s plan. The image also shared by Samsung China during the Zoom Meeting looks very similar to the leaked image from last year.
For those that don’t know, a 600MP sensor will be the biggest in a smartphone yet. It might take up to 12% of the smartphone arear at the back. This sensor will also feature a massive 1/0.57-inch size. For context, this is way bigger than the Samsung’s 108MP sensor with a size of 1/1.3-inch and 0.8μm.
Looking to the future, Samsung says this ISOCELL sensor will provide solution to the Zoom or 4k/8k video trends. We all know that the more zoom into a photo, the more blur it becomes. With a 600MP sensor, Samsung hope this issue will be resolved.
But it’s very important to point out that there is no known chipset, processor or SoC that 600MP ready yet. Maybe the incoming Qualcomm Chip will have such feature. Or maybe Samsung will bring an Exynos chip to have support for this feature.
We still don’t know if Tecno Mobile will be making use of this 600MP sensor in its incoming smartphones. What we do know is that a Tecno 5G smartphone is ready and Tecno is also working on a concept phone with Sensor-Shift OIS with up to 5,000/s Response Frequency and 350 percent stabilization improvement.
