Not Samsung, but Motorola is the first to offer a phone with a 200-megapixel camera. That should happen in the second half of 2022, according to a tweet from Ice Universe. Cool because the camera sensor maker is none other than Samsung. Samsung itself does not want to equip a phone with it until 2023.
We are talking about ISOCELL HP1. Samsung announced this sensor in September of 2021. According to a tweet from Ice world However, it will be some time before we find it in the phone. Not until the second half of 2022 at the earliest, after which Motorola will come up with a model. Xiaomi followed shortly after. Samsung won’t have time to implement the sensor until 2023.
Why it takes so long is anyone’s guess. Maybe we’ll have to wait for a processor that can handle all those pixels, maybe the lack of chips is causing problems, we don’t know. What we do know is that Samsung originally planned to announce a 200MP phone in 2021. This rumor also came from the Ice Universe at the time. The latest Note was supposed to have this sensor, but as we now know this model has been omitted.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra?
In addition to Motorola, Xiaomi is also planning a 200MP phone. It should also be released sometime in 2022 and will use Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1. Samsung’s first Galaxy phone should follow only in 2023. With the Note series gone, it’s clear that it will end up in the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but don’t make us feel like it.
