Then we will acquaint readers with the data on the Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite device. After that, we will inform you about two devices from Sony and Samsung.
Samsung engineers develop a high-resolution camera
The camera with the highest resolution (108 megapixel) is currently equipped with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. There were rumors that the company's management is actively stimulating the work of its specialists so that none of the competitors can approach them and surpass this parameter.
One of the insiders claims that the release of a Samsung camera with a 150MP Nonacell sensor is currently being prepared. Its commercial use is scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.
According to the leak, Xiaomi devices will be the first to receive the novelty. One of the flagship smartphones of the Chinese manufacturer will receive a camera with a Nonacell sensor. Then it will be the turn of OPPO and Vivo, which also expressed their desire to use a high-tech device. The start of sales of gadgets with 150-megapixel sensors is scheduled for early 2021.
It should be understood that the desire of the Korean manufacturer to create a powerful camera is justified. At the end of this year, Qualcomm intends to announce a new 5nm Snapdragon 875 processor. According to its characteristics, this chipset will be the most suitable for working with sensors like Nonacell. It is said to have pixel binning functionality that only the Galaxy S20 Ultra currently has.
This program allows you to capture and detail your subjects in low light conditions.
There are also rumors that Korean engineers are working on another product - a 144 megapixel camera. There is no confirmation yet that this sensor and Nonacell are the same. So we are talking about another technology or production method.
The Snapdragon 865 processor is known to support cameras up to 200MP. Surely the next-generation chip will be able to support higher-resolution sensors.
Therefore, developers have a field for action, there is still a long way to creating 200-megapixel products.
It is possible that Samsung engineers are simultaneously working on a new type of chip. It could be the Exynos 1000, which has already been rumored.
