Ice Universe, one of the most reputable sources of information about Samsung, brings more news about the future of mobile photography. This time the known leaker It says that cameras with smartphones with 108MP and 10x zoom could arrive next year.
The source provides no further detail, which leaves a lot of room for speculation. Still, it accompanies this news with an image that quickly reminds us of the Galaxy Note 10.
Admittedly, these new cameras will not arrive with the Note 10, but this illustration may be a hint that Samsung may be the owner of this new sensor. Currently, the highest resolution sensor in South Korea has 64MP.
Sony is the one that already has the highest resolution sensor on the market. At stake is its 48MP lens that is already part of several smartphones, namely from Xiaomi. Already the 64MP lens from Samsung has not yet officially hit the market.
The combination of a 10x 10MP zoom lens is the big news
It's important to talk about the 10x optical zoom that this new lens promises. When it comes to hybrid zoom, this technology will allow you to capture images without any loss of quality.
This is not a new technology as Oppo introduced it earlier this year. The big news in this news is even the combination of this ability to zoom the image with such lens resolution.
This 108MP sensor camera can use "Pixel Pinning" technology.
Like Sony's 48MP sensor, this new lens could use a technology called "Pixel Pinning". Thanks to this technology, images can be captured more clearly and clearly.
Merely increasing lens resolution does not mean the consequent improvement in the quality of captured images. There are many other factors to consider, including its aperture, sensor size and even its image processing software.
But while we already see 48MP sensors in the mid range, we will hardly see a 108MP sensor in the same segment. Such a resolution seems too big for this range of smartphones. As such, it is likely that this new lens may be exclusive to the top of the range, at least in principle.
This is not the first time talking about a lens with a resolution higher than 100MP. Qualcomm and Credit Suisse have already mentioned a 150MP lens, but so far has not materialized.
