If Xiaomi is planning to release a phone with a 200MP shooter in the second half of 2022, Motorola will likely release its 200MP handset sometime before that. It is unlikely to be the Moto Edge X, which rumors alleged would be the first handset to flaunt Qualcomm’s next flagship chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 and feature a triple camera setup with a 50MP main camera. Motorola has already started teasing the phone and appears to believe that it will be one of its best phones and surpass expectations.
Samsung introduced the first 200MP smartphone sensor in September, but it’s unlikely that the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the company’s next flagship, will use it. According to reports, the South Korean manufacturer has no plans to release the world’s first smartphone with a 200MP camera, and neither will Xiaomi. Motorola will be the first business to release a phone with a 200-megapixel camera. Ice Universe, a leaker, also claims that Xiaomi would be the next company to produce a 200MP smartphone in the second half of 2022. The Xiaomi 12 series was previously thought to be the first to contain a 200MP sensor, but current sources suggest that the flagship model will instst.
Considering the Moto Edge X will be released globally in early 2022, we wonder if the rumored 200MP device will be announced in the second quarter of 2022. As for Samsung, although the company’s next foldable flagship is rumored to come with better cameras than the current generation, it is unlikely to get the 200MP sensor. Instead, the Galaxy S23 will seemingly be the company’s first phone to feature a 200MP camera. What’s special about Samsung’s 200MP camera?
Samsung’s 200MP camera, which is called the ISOCELL HP1, features 0.64μm pixels and the new ChameleonCell pixel-binning technology for churning out 50MP images using 1.28μm pixels or 12.5MP shots using 2.56μm pixels in low-lit environments. It’s also capable of shooting 8K videos at 30fps with minimum loss in the field of view. It can also record 4K videos at 120fps and FHD clips at 240fps. The company says that the unit can capture details that the naked eye misses.
