Xiaomi is working on a smartphone that will come with a 200-megapixel sensor according to a new report. The news comes days after the Chinese tech giant launched the Xiaomi Mi 11X Pro with a 108-megapixel Samsung HM2 main sensor in India. Reports of the 200-megapixel sensor have been circulating the internet for quite some time. A few tipsters have also pointed out that Samsung will be working on a 200-megapixel ISOCELL sensor for smartphone cameras.
Tipster Digital Chat Station confirmed the existence of a 200 megapixel sensor via a Tweeter, as well as a post on Weibo (via ITHome). The tipster’s post doesn’t explicitly mention that Xiaomi is working on a smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera, but the ITHome report does. He also quotes an old Weibo article from the Ice Universe tipster which claimed that this particular ISOCELL sensor was developed by Samsung and had a pixel of 0.64 microns.
This is not the first time that Samsung’s name has appeared as the manufacturer of the 200-megapixel camera sensor. Apart from a Tweeter from Ice Universe, tipster WHYLAB also claimed that Samsung was working on this sensor. WHYLAB claimed that Samsung’s purported 200-megapixel sensor is 1 / 1.37 inch and has 1.28 micron pixels. It is said to support 4-in-1 and 16-in-1 pixel clustering technology to reduce noise in enhanced images. The sensor was also designed to record 16K videos.
At that time, WHYLAB also said that the sensor could debut in the ZTE Axon 30 Pro 5G, but the smartphone was launched with a 64-megapixel sensor by Samsung. LetsGoDigital’s Mark Peters claimed in a Tweeter that the Samsung Galaxy S22 will have a 200 megapixel sensor. He also shared 3D product renderings in collaboration with Technizo Concept highlighting the Olympus 200-megapixel camera. There is no concrete information on this at the moment, and developments should be taken with a grain of salt.
