Sony could join the megapixel race with 100MP sensors to compete with Samsung


Last updated: June 21st, 2022 at 10:27 UTC+02:00

It has been almost three years since Samsung launched its first 108MP camera sensor. Earlier this year, the company launched its first 200MP camera sensor. Now, Sony could join the megapixel race with its own 100MP smartphone camera sensors in a bid to attract more clients.

It is being reported that Sony has been working on its first-generation 100MP camera sensor. The report claims that the Japanese firm’s first 100MP camera sensor will be a part of its IMX8 series and that it will be suitable for mid-range and higher mid-range smartphones. No specifications have yet been revealed, but the sensor could be bigger than the usual 1/2-inch 64MP camera.

While no brand has launched a smartphone with Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1 200MP camera sensor, the South Korean firm is already developing its second-generation 200MP sensor, which could be launched later this year. It is rumored that the Galaxy S23 Ultra features a 200MP camera sensor.

Motorola has reportedly equipped its upcoming flagship smartphone—Edge 30 Ultra—with the 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor. Apple exclusively uses Sony camera sensors in iPhones, while OPPO, OnePlus, and Xiaomi are slowly switching from Samsung to Sony sensors for their high-end smartphones.
