A very authoritative network informant under the nickname Ice Universe announced in April this year that the company will release sensors with a resolution of 600 megapixels in the future, which will surpass the human eye’s capabilities. Now an insider has confirmed that such a sensor is indeed already in development.
This insider has repeatedly confirmed that he has contacts in the South Korean company Samsung’s development department. He was the first to publish real images of the Galaxy S20 and many other reliable information, so his words are definitely worth listening to.
This image shows what a 600-megapixel camera could be on a smartphone if Samsung doesn’t fundamentally change the technology. In this case, the camera alone will occupy 12% of the rear panel area, and the camera unit will protrude 22 mm above the back panel of the smartphone. Of course, that would be extremely inconvenient, so it will be exciting to see how Samsung implements such a high resolution in the next generation ISOCELL sensor.
It is unlikely that smartphones with such cameras will hit the market next year. After Samsung’s 108MP image sensor, insiders are expecting a 192MP sensor.
