Samsung is working on a 600-megapixels mobile camera sensor
In a recent tweet, a popular Tipster Ice Universe claimed that South Korean technology company Samsung is working on a 600 megapixels camera sensor. He also shared a few images to back his claim.
The image shared by the tipster seems like a slide from a presentation. This image confirms that Samsung is working on an ISOCELL 600 megapixels sensor. This sensor is expected to make 4K and 8K recording retains the video quality even when zoomed.
Before this sensor becomes a part of smartphones, Samsung will have to solve the camera bump issue. It is because a 1/0.57″ big sensor would have to take roughly 12% of the phone’s back panel. It will also make a 22mm bulge. Now for the comparison, the Galaxy Note 20 is 8.3mm thick. So having a 22mm camera bump won’t be possible in a consumer device.
It is also important to understand that higher megapixel count members guarantee better pictures. This is the reason Apple and Google still use just 12 megapixels camera sensor but produce high-end camera phones.
