    Samsung’s 108MP camera sensor used in a phone running HarmonyOS

    So far, many smartphone brands have used Samsung's 108MP ISOCELL HM2 sensor, including Realme and Xiaomi. However, all those devices are powered by Android. Now, for the first time, Samsung's 108MP ISOCELL HM2 sensor is being used in a non-Android smartphone—WIKO 5G—powered by Huawei's HarmonyOS.

    WIKO is a smartphone brand headquartered in France. The company recently entered China and seems to be selling Huawei's 5G smartphones under its umbrella. That's because Huawei can't sell 5G phones due to the restrictions imposed by the US. Since the company can't sell the 5G devices by itself, Huawei has partnered with WIKO to sell its 5G smartphones.

    The WIKO 5G is a clear example of that partnership. It is basically the Huawei Nova 9 SE with 5G and HarmonyOS. Along with Samsung's sensor as the primary camera, it gets an 8MP ultra-wide sensor and two 2MP cameras (for depth and macro). The rest of the specifications include a 6.78-inch 90Hz LCD, Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC, and a 5,000mAh battery.

    It is interesting to see how Huawei, which was once a direct rival to Samsung, especially when it came to imaging, is now using Samsung's camera sensors in its smartphones. Recently, we've seen many other brands using more and more camera sensors from the South Korean firm. Take the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra and Redmi Note 12 Discovery, for example. Both of them use Samsung's 200MP camera sensor.

    While Samsung may not be doing good with chipsets, the company is certainly gaining more traction in the market with its camera sensors.
