A 200-megapixel camera on a flagship Android device might be in the works at Xiaomi.
It has been revealed that Xiaomi’s Galaxy S22 competitor would have a 200MP camera, according to Weibo tipster Digital Chat Station. Additionally, in addition to the 200MP sensor, the phone will reportedly include a 50MP “main” sensor, according to reports.
Despite the fact that the tipster hasn’t provided any more information, there’s a high likelihood that the phone will be the first to include Samsung’s 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor. The ISOCELL HP1 sensor, which was announced just a few days ago, is Samsung’s first mobile image sensor to use ChameleonCell technology, which improves low-light performance.
However, while the new 200MP sensor has a much greater resolution than the 50MP ISOCELL GN2 sensor that was used in the Mi 11 Ultra, its pixel size of 0.64mm is not very large. The ISOCELL HP1’s relatively tiny pixel size might be the reason why the phone is expected to include two “primary” sensors, one on either side of the camera lens.
The Xiaomi 12 series is likely to include the company’s next-generation Android flagship, which may be unveiled as early as the end of the year or as late as the beginning of 2022. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 processor, speculated to be named the Snapdragon 888 successor, will most likely be used to power the device.
Additionally, the tipster adds that Xiaomi intends to keep employing main sensors with resolutions of 108MP and 64MP in its mid-range and budget flagship phones in 2019. Xiaomi’s forthcoming 11T Pro, which is intended to compete with the finest Android phones in the high-end market, will also have a 108MP primary camera, according to reports. The Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro are expected to make their global debut on September 15 during an online launch event hosted by Xiaomi.
