There have been rumors of a 200MP smartphone in the works. However, as of now, there is no smartphone in the market with this sensor. According to a recent report from @UniverseIce, Motorola will debut Samsung’s 200MP camera. Furthermore, the leakster reveals that Xiaomi will launch a smartphone with this sensor in the second half of next year. As for Samsung, its first 200MP smartphone will arrive in 2023. Although Samsung developed this technology, it will not be the first to use it.
This is not the first time that Samsung will be failing to debut its new technology. Recall that the Xiaomi CC9 Pro debuted Samsung’s 100MP camera (the world’s first 100MP sensor). Just two years after the launch of the first 100MP smartphone, we are now in the era of 200MP smartphones.
According to reports, Samsung’s 200MP sensor model is ISOCELL HP1. It is based on Samsung’s most advanced 0.64μm technology and has an ultra-high resolution ISOCELL HP1 in a small package. This can integrate perfectly into various smartphones of today.
In order to pursue a more extreme low-light shooting effect, ISOCELL HP1 adopts the new ChameleonCell technology, as a pixel synthesis technology. It can use 4×4, 2×2, or full pixel mode according to the use environment. Therefore, the three-star ISOCELL HP1 can be synthesized in large 1.28μm pixels, generating 50MP proofs, large or synthetic 2.56μm pixels, generating 12.5MP proofs. In addition, Samsung’s 200MP camera supports 30fps 8K video recording, 120fps 4K video recording, and so on.
Samsung ISOCELL HP1 200MP sensor details
Staggered HDR is also available: this tool allows you to get a wide dynamic range of 100 dB. The system takes shots at fast, medium, and long shutter speeds to accurately expose shadows and highlights. It then combines this data into one crisp, detailed image, even when shooting in mixed lighting conditions.
Finally, there is fast and accurate autofocus based on Double Super PD phase-detection technology. This system has twice as many AF pixels as Super PD. The pixels have micro-autofocus lenses, allowing you to focus faster on fast-moving subjects.
To make it easier for users to capture fleeting moments, Samsung equipped the ISOCELL HP1 with fast and accurate autofocus. This is possible thanks to the image sensor’s Double Super PD phase-detection technology. Double Super PD technology contains twice as many autofocus pixels as Super PD. Those pixels have AF micro-lenses that allow you to focus on fast-moving objects faster and capture stunning content.
With its groundbreaking resolution and cutting-edge technologies, the ISOCELL HP1 offers users access to a whole new world of detail. Get the most out of any moment with an image sensor that’s designed for a new era of mobile photography.
