When you go crazy, to the maximum. These words are taken to heart by Samsung, which is preparing a real revolution in mobile photography. It is not necessarily expected by smartphone users, but this time there is a chance that these thick hundreds of megapixels will eventually translate into better photos.
The Korean company was the first in the world to introduce the 108 Mpix sensor, and presented 200 Mpix last year. Now we learn that engineers are preparing something even more powerful, with a resolution of 576 Mpix.
Yongin Park, executive vice president of Samsung Sensor Business, announced some time ago that his company’s ambition is to go beyond the 500 megapixel limit. We also know that Samsung is working on sensors with a resolution of over 600 Mpix, but they are only in their infancy.
All these numbers look beautiful, but there is one but serious problem. Smartphones with such sensors can have an island more than 20 millimeters thick. This is more than twice the thickness of the smartphone itself. Rather, we do not count that they will be popular if they even appear on the market. However, if they do appear, they will be around 2025. Maybe they can be miniaturized by then.
