A time suspended to improve other aspects (color, night mode, bokeh effect …), the race for megapixels has somewhat resumed in smartphones with modules of 48 megapixels, then 64 megapixels and even 108 megapixels , especially at Xiaomi and Samsung.
This upward trend should continue and we have seen rumors of photo modules ranging from 200 to 600 megapixels expected in the coming years in recent months.
From 2021, Samsung could offer a mobile photo sensor of 200 megapixels. In any case, this is what the leaker says Ice Universe, aware of the Korean group’s projects in a tweet.
Samsung ISOCELL will launch many innovative sensors in 2021.
200MP is coming soon.

We already know that it will not be present in the Galaxy S21 series formalized in a few days, the Galaxy S21 Ultra taking a configuration with 108 megapixel module.

While it is possible that Samsung offers such a photo module on one of its smartphones with a folding screen, the latter becoming the new premium category, the 200 megapixel sensor may make an appearance on a large mid-range Galaxy A smartphone. , often used to carry certain high-end features without skyrocketing the price in return.
As always, the sensor would mainly be used to carry out pixel binning, namely to merge several pixels into one to create a more compact photo maintaining good brightness and an appreciable level of detail.
It will undoubtedly be possible to take photos in 200 megapixels (Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC could handle it) but only on demand and with a good storage capacity in return.
