Hyderabad: The megapixel race has been heating up and though rumours were galore that Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra would feature a 200MP camera sensor, latest reports indicate that this might not happen.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra currently has one of the largest resolution smartphone cameras in the market at 108MP, challenging the best Android phones on the market. The Galaxy S22 Ultra is likely to retain its 6.8-inch screen size and may come with an OLED display that uses the company’s advanced LTPO technology, and maybe, a more “polished” version of the ISOCELL HM3 sensor, with the main camera reportedly to be a 108MP one.
Xiaomi was actually the first to release a smartphone with the inflated resolution, only for Samsung to follow closely after with the Galaxy S20 Ultra after the company leaned hard on teasing the capabilities of its latest Exynos chip.
Samsung seems to want to make the most of its 108MP camera before squeezing more pixels into its flagships. It will now be interesting to see how things shape up by the time the Galaxy S22 series becomes production-ready.
The 200MP dreams, therefore, might have to be put on hold for the time being.
