Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra may come with 200-megapixel sensor


The Samsung Galaxy S22 series has been a part of leaks and news for quite some time now. The upcoming flagship smartphone series from the South Korean tech company could include Samsung Galaxy S22, Samsung Galaxy S22+ and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphones.

According to the latest rumours, the resolution of the primary sensor of Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will be 108 MP. Samsung has optimized this sensor for three years, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra will showcase its maximum capabilities. But from the next generation on, Samsung will start a new round of megapixel war. Samsung is reported to use ISOCELL HP1 sensor in the Galaxy S23 series and the Galaxy S23 Ultra will eventually get a new image sensor – 200-megapixel resolution.

The ISOCELL HP1 sensor, which Samsung introduced in early September, is said to support 200 megapixels. Its optical format is 1/1.22 inch and its pixel size is 0.64 µm. The ISOCELL HP1 can capture 8K video at 30 frames-per-second (fps) with minimal field loss.

“Samsung has been a leader in ultrafine pixel technologies that are taking high-resolution image sensors to the next level,” said Daekhyun Chang, executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics. “With the ISOCell HP1 breaking down barriers and the ISOCELL GN5 bringing ultrafast autofocus, Samsung will continue to lead the trend for next-generation mobile imaging technologies.”

In addition, the latest ISOCELL HP1 features a brand new chameleon cell technology. Depending on the environment, the technology uses a two-by-two, four-by-four, or full pixel layout.

The tech giant is reported to use Chameleon Cell Pixel Merging technology in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The technology will allow you to create brighter pictures, reducing the resolution to 50 or 12.5 MP. In the first case, the pixel size will be 1.28 µm, in the second – 2.65 µm. Furthermore, the sensor supports 8K video recording at 30 fps and 4K video at 120 fps.
