Almost one year after the introduction of Samsung’s 200MP camera sensor, the world’s first smartphone using that sensor has been launched. The Motorola X30 Pro, which launched in China today, uses the ISOCELL HP1 as its primary camera. It is the company’s latest flagship smartphone.

The Motorola X30 Pro features a 200MP ISOCELL HP1 primary camera (1/1.22-inch) with OIS, an F1.95 aperture, and phase-detection autofocus. It can capture 12.5MP images in the 16-in-1 pixel binning mode, with a resulting pixel size of 2.56µm. The rear camera can record up to 8K 30fps and 4K 60fps videos.

It also features a 50MP ultrawide camera with autofocus and a 12MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and PDAF. On the front, the Motorola flagship phone uses a 60MP selfie camera (Omnivision’s OV60a) with 4K 30fps video recording.

This high-end smartphone has a 6.7-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and a 144Hz variable refresh rate. The phone is equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, 8GB/12GB RAM, 128GB/256GB/512GB storage, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C port, and an under-display optical fingerprint reader.

The Motorola X30 Pro is powered by a 4,610mAh battery and supports up to 125W fast wired charging, 50W fast wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging.

Looking at its specifications, the phone can compete head-to-head with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. It is priced at CNY 3,699 (around $548) for the 128GB version and goes up to CNY 4,499 (around $668) for the 512GB version.

Samsung could also bring a 200MP camera with the Galaxy S23 Ultra

Even Samsung is expected to adopt a 200MP camera sensor in the Galaxy S23 Ultra that will be launched early next year. However, the upcoming flagship Galaxy device is said to feature a slightly improved sensor and it could be the ISOCELL HP2, which hasn’t been unveiled yet.
