Recently, we wrote that Samsung has decided to get out of the megapixel race. A new leak suggests that Xiaomi, on the contrary, continues to strive for even more megapixels.
The first with 108MP, and the first with 200MP
Recall that Xiaomi was the first company to introduce a smartphone with a 108-megapixel camera. By the way, then the ISOCELLL sensor from Samsung was used. Now Samsung is preparing a 200-megapixel sensor, and the insider Digital Chat Station reports that Xiaomi will again be the first to take it into circulation.
However, the insider does not announce any deadlines. It is understandable: Samsung has not yet introduced a new sensor, and information about its development has not even been officially confirmed.
However, according to the leaks, the sensor will get pixels of 0.64 microns, and this is the smallest size to date. You can also expect to be able to combine multiple pixels into one and have a good zoom. Technically, this sensor will have a sufficient resolution for 16K video, but unfortunately, there is no processor that can handle it yet. Current chips can’t even do 8K 60fps.
