One of the most attention-grabbing features of users in today’s smart phone market is the camera performance of phones. According to the allegations, Samsung is working on a technology that will upset this race.
According to a claim made on Twitter, Samsung is developing a 150 MP camera for its flagship smartphones. According to the claims, the sensor only covers an area of 2.5 cm and uses the same Nanocell technology as the ISOCELL Bright HM1 sensor in the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Moreover, the claims made do not only cover Samsung. According to allegations, Xiaomi will also use the 150 MP sensor on its flagship phones, which will be released in the fourth quarter of 2020, and will be the first third-party company to use this sensor. Other companies such as OPPO and Vivo will start using the same technology in the first quarter of 2021. These devices will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor, which has not yet been announced in addition to its 150 MP cameras.
Racing with Nanocell technology:
The sensor will combine 9 pixels in a single pixel to capture higher amounts of light as it will use Nanocell technology. According to the news in Sammobile, the camera, which has a resolution of 150 MP, should offer 16 MP images at the end. The ISOCELL Bright HM1 sensor offered 12 MP shots.
If this assertion is true, it seems quite possible that the South Korean smartphone manufacturer will target more pixels on their sensors with this camera technology. The race to offer more pixels seemed to be over in recent years, but Nanocell technology may heat it up again.
There is also the possibility that Samsung is developing this technology for its customers in China. Therefore, we may not be able to see this technology directly on the flagship phones the company will release in the future, but we may also see a different variation of this technology.
