Samsung has been constantly working to extend the power of the smartphone camera. For this reason, the company was one of the first to introduce the 64MP sensor to the world. However, the South Korean giant did not stop there and together with Xiaomi launched the 108MP camera sensor, which today equips the Mi Note 10 and Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Now, while the market awaits the launch of the option with 150MP, industry sources point out that Samsung has already started working with its next camera sensor. According to people who have access to the company’s plans, the development of the 250MP ISOCELL camera sensor is at an early stage.
Even so, despite being at a very early stage, Samsung’s 250MP camera sensor will certainly be announced with an inch or even more in size. This makes the company’s work more difficult since it becomes even more complex to fit a component of this size in thin smartphones.
The 64MP sensor is 1 / 1.72 inches in size, while the 108MP sensor is 1 / 1.33 inches. Samsung’s challenge is to keep the new 250 MP sensor at an acceptable size. Following the example of its predecessors, Samsung should also announce the 250 MP sensor in conjunction with Nonacell technology to fuse 9 pixels into 1. Thus, we will have images of 27MP.
