One more brand working on phone with Samsung’s 200MP camera sensor

Samsung is making huge strides in the smartphone camera market with its innovative sensors. It was the first (and is still the only) company to release a 108MP camera sensor for mobile devices. It was revealed a few months ago that it might soon release a 200MP camera sensor, which will first be used in a smartphone from a Chinese firm.

While the South Korean firm is yet to make its 200MP ISOCELL camera sensor official, rumors have already linked it to at least two smartphones. Three months ago, it was rumored that Samsung’s upcoming camera sensor would first be used in a smartphone from ZTE. It is now being reported that Xiaomi has already started working on a high-end smartphone with a 200MP sensor.

The rumored 200MP camera reportedly goes by model number S5KGND and features a 1/1.37-inch sensor. It is said that it features both 4-in-1 pixel binning and 16-in-1 pixel binning modes. In the 4-in-1 pixel binning mode, it can capture 50MP images, and in the 16-in-1 pixel binning mode, it can snap 12.5MP images. It has 1.28μm pixels, smaller than the ISOCELL GN2’s 2.8μm pixels (in 4-in-1 pixel binning mode) and ISOCELL HM3’s 2.4μm pixels (in 9-in-1 pixel binning mode).

The upcoming camera sensor from Samsung will reportedly feature 16K video recording capabilities. However, no smartphone chipset in the world currently has an ISP capable of processing 16K videos. Even 8K video recording quality is barely up to the mark, so we cannot expect the phones with Samsung’s 200MP sensor to actually feature 16K video recording.
