Galaxy S21 tipped to get 150MP main camera

Galaxy S20 Ultra

It’s been just two months since the launch of the Galaxy S20 series, but there is already a report speculating that the next flagship S21 series from the South Korean giant could pack in a 150MP camera.

As per a report from Sammobile, it seems the company is already testing the optics of the new S series. The company is apparently trying hard to repair the damage created during the latest flagship camera issues.

The report says that Samsung is planning to place a 150MP sensor on its S21 series. This affirms the earlier reports of Samsung working on Higher MP cameras. Further, Laser auto focus is expected to be dropped. Auxillary sensors expected are a 64MP telephoto lens, a 16MP wide-angle, and a 12MP Macro lens.

Interestingly, two models of the device are being planned. One of them is said to have OIS on the primary and telephoto lens, in addition to the selfie camera supporting the stabilization. The other model will likely have OIS on primary, telephoto and wide-angle lenses.

It must be noted that Samsung was expected to include a macro lens on its S20 series but that rumor never saw the light of the day. With the latest report, it seems Samsung is finally bringing the macro lens to its flagships which was earlier limited to the A-series.

If we recall, Samsung has been facing a major backlash from the users regarding the focusing issues in its S20 series. The latest offering from the company is already struggling in sales amidst heavy competition. However, the company tried to fix many of the image quality issues through OTA updates. But the damage to reputation was already done by then.

That being said, the reports coming out are too early to arrive at a conclusion and we will have to wait at least until the next Note series from the company launches, to get further confirmations on the claim.
