The year 2020 can be considered as the year of launching the best photography Smartphone, with best image sensors of up to 100 megapixels of resolution. This splendid camera featured phones is planned to be in the mainstream soon.
It is expected that we may soon welcome the Smartphone having the superior camera lens can go to the up to extended 256 megapixels. A recent post on Weibo indicates that an unnamed Smartphone which has 256 megapixels of the camera is spotted in the testing. In spite of this post, no further information regarding making, release and the designing of the model has been released that can indicate more about the Smartphone and the sensors. This concealing adds more doubt and hints that it may or may not be factual enough.
The Weibo’s post looks like a screenshot of a Smartphone’s camera app. The most interfaces were in the Mandarian, the screenshot appears to highlight a mode titled with “256M”. The new interfaces spotted in the camera are in the line of the interfaces found in the line of Xiaomi’s, Oppo, Realme and others. The camera’s app is featured with a separate mode to house the max output from the high-resolution sensor.
It is interesting to note that, presently, there are not any chipset present that can house 256 MP Chipsets. The recent snapdragon 865 SoC is designed to supports up to 200 MP of camera. It is expected that the screenshot shared in the Post may belong to the recent prototype of an image sensor that is found to be tested internally and this can be said that the product may not be ready for the actual implementation in the real world.
In present times, there has been a debate that is boosted is about the usage of the high-resolution image sensors. Many in the debates highlight the usefulness of the high pixel binning paired again with the advantage of the more pixels that can produce more details. While the others argue about the smaller pixel sizes and the impact of high-resolution sensors on each file size. It is estimated that companies like Sony and Samsung are planning to work on the more advanced technologies beyond quad pixel arrays. They will address the present limitations of the high-resolution sensors by increasing the count of pixels further.
The updations in the technologies would be magnanimous as the improvement would require digging more into the engineering barriers and more digging will leads to higher technological innovations in the future starting with the size limits in the Smartphone’s phone sensor.
This screenshot post on Weibo doesn’t reveal much but it would be really speculative to see 256 megapixels of the image sensor to be integrated into the Smartphone of the future. As of now, it seems like the most unrealistic expectations done from the Smartphone when even there is no chipset is present the support said megapixels
