The days of the pixel race is back, as companies work to outvie each other with the largest number of pixels on their phone cameras. Samsung recently released the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra with a 108-megapixel camera, and now the company is reportedly working on a 1-inch 150-megapixel camera which it is aiming to sell to Xiaomi and Oppo and Vivo. Samsung is rumoured to have a new camera sensor in the pipeline that will have an image resolution of whooping 150 megapixels. The 150-megapixel camera sensor by the South Korean giant is said to be based on the Nonacell technology that the company used on its ISOCELL Bright HM1 sensor, which was featured on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The proprietary technology performs 9-in-1 pixel binning to provide high resolution results.
The report adds that Xiaomi will be the first to use the 150MP sensor in its flagship phone in Q4 2020, and this could be the Mi MIX 4 or the successor to the Mi Note 10. OPPO and vivo will also use the sensor in their phones in Q1 2021 with the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 Mobile Platform, so we can expect them in Find X3 and Vivo NEX 4
