The race to megapixels has now begun to unimaginable levels even a few months ago. Think of Sony’s 48-megapixel sensor, which left everyone speechless and soon surpassed the 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 Samsung?
Well, the Korean giant at the end of 2019 made the official 108 megapixel ISOCELL Bright HMX already installed Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and is expected this year on the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Fold 2. But that’s not all: Samsung will already be working on the development new 250 megapixel sensor.
However, it’s useful to take a step back first: the Korean giant has already completed the production of a 150-megapixel camera, which can debut at the top of the Xiaomi line by the end of the year, and then be oversized on the flagships of the beginning of 2021 Oppo and Vivo. , And here the news about the 250 MP sensor is not surprising, given that the same company has already announced that it will soon reach 600 MP.
Of course, the difficulties in integrating components of this kind are starting to become huge. The sizes of lenses of this type do not correspond to the production trend of thinner smartphones, not forgetting that pixel binning At these levels, more and more computing power will be required.
