    Samsung’s 64MP camera sensor not coming to Galaxy phones this year?

    Smartphone cameras have come a long way and have turned into a major point of differentiation among different phones in the market. There was a phase in the industry when smartphone cameras were all about the megapixel count. Thankfully, that has changed in recent years with companies focusing on image quality and multi-camera setups.

    After a few years of lull, it appears manufacturers are once again entering the megapixel race with news and rumors about upcoming phones with monstrous camera sensors popping up every day. We have already seen quite a few phones with 48-megapixel sensors this year, including one from Samsung. The company also recently launched a 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 image sensor that was rumored to make its debut on the button-less Galaxy smartphone codenamed R6.

    However, with reports emerging that Samsung may have canceled the R6, well-known leaker Ice Universe says the company has abandoned plans to use the G1 sensor on any of its phones this year and will instead bring it to new A series models in 2020. Meanwhile, the sensor will make its debut on phones from Realme and Redmi that are expected to launch this year. The latter has already confirmed that it is working on a phone with a 64-megapixel camera, adding credence to the rumor.

    It is worth remembering that none of what Ice Universe tweeted is official yet (not to forget he misfired a few times of late) and Samsung may still launch a phone with a 64MP camera this year. With the cutthroat competition prevalent in the smartphone market, it would be a welcome move if the Korean company emerges as the first to launch a phone with its G1 sensor. For a variety of reasons, the company hasn’t been very aggressive in adopting new technology recently, even as Chinese OEMs continue to experiment and evolve rapidly.
