Samsung made headlines last year when the market introduced the first 108 Megapixel smartphone camera sensor. Korean technology website Clien.net's Samsung is developing a new smartphone camera sensor to be released later this year.
Although Samsung has not yet made an official statement, a report from Clien Taiwan has been published in South Korea forums, which suggests the development of Samsung's 150 Megapixel camera sensor . Sleepy Kuma, a Twitter user, mentioned his report stating that the new camera will have a 1 inch 150MP "Nanocell" sensor , which will be limited to flagship models.
He added that in the report, Samsung will supply the new sensor to Chinese smartphone manufacturers Xiaomi , Oppo and Vivo . "Oppo and Vivo have the goal of merging Samsung's Nanocell sensor with Snapdragon 875 in the first quarter of next year," the report said. It is not clear whether Samsung will include this camera in the next-generation Galaxy Note series smartphones.
The South Korean giant's 150 Megapixel camera sensor is said to be based on the company's Nanocell technology used on the ISOCELL Bright HM1 sensor on the Galaxy S20 Ultra . ISOCELL Bright HM1 and ISOCELL HMX produce 12 Megapixel image results when using different pixel binning technologies. In contrast, the 150 Megapixel camera sensor can technically deliver 16 Megapixel output by combining nine pixels using Nanocell technology.
