Samsung doesn’t want to see the end of 200 MP cameras in the coming years, there will be more soon.
The megapixel craze is actually slowly over, but Samsung still wants to continue. After 200 MP image sensors recently found their place in the Ultra models of the Galaxy S series, there will be another big thing on the top in the near future.
Industry circles are currently saying that Samsung is planning a new image sensor with more than 400 MP These sensors are about 1 inch in size, but with pixels as small as 0.5 µm in physical size Instead, Samsung relies on a combination of much smaller pixels.
The bottom line here is a resolution of 432 MP. This will certainly sound good in promotional materials, but it can also bring new problems. Today, Samsung already lags far behind in terms of shutter release speed, resulting in motion blur.
Finally, a very large number of pixels have to be integrated here and this requires a lot of computing power. The goal must be of a very high standard of detail; It needs as many pixels as possible. So it’s not just about being able to advertise the maximum number of pixels.
