Leak: Xiaomi will be the first to use Samsung's upcoming 200 MP sensor

  No comments

ISOCELL- was one of Samsung's sensors to break the 100 MP barrier. Guess what? Xiaomi was the first company to use it in Mobile. That was in the past, now as Samsung is gearing up to launch the maiden 200 MP sensor, Xiaomi is not behind, and preparing for a second time to be the first to use it. 

This information was conveyed by leakster Digital Chat Station- however, there’s no time frame shared for the launch though. Ice Universe, another known leakster, states that the 200MP will come with 0.64 µm pixels-- said to be the smallest to date.

Previously, it was reported that the sensor will come with a 1/1.37” optical format, smaller than the GN2(1/1.2”) - this is about the same size in comparison to the recently launched 108MP sensor--the HM3 (1/1.33”, 0.8 µm).

There was another info-that was part of the leak, which stated that the ZTE Axon 30 flagship will be the first,  coming with this sensor, so clearly, the info is not 100 percent accurate. However, a part of it seems true. This leak also says that there will be 4-in-1 binning support for the sensor -which will give an out resolution of 50MP and an effective pixel size of 1.28µm. And 16-in-1 binning with 12.5MP output was also mentioned; however, it may not see the light of day.

In the current crop of 108 MP cameras, the 2x and 3x lossless digital zoom options are available, depending on camera configuration. The 200MP sensor will likely surpass this, meaning the mid-range zoom modules will become obsolete. Technically, this sensor possesses enough resolution for 16K video (133MP); however, we have to wait for it for some years, as currently, the top chip can’t even get 8K @ 60fps.

Anyway, smaller pixels will be used for high-resolution sensors--or else, we will have quite big sensors physically, which in turn pass on to a thick camera module - and phones like the Mi 11 Ultra is loaded with a bulky camera bump already- with 1/1.12” GN2 sensor. The advanced sensor designs, pixel binning, and enhanced processing will neutralize the downsides of smaller pixels
