Samsung is the first, and still, the only tech brand that makes 100-megapixel camera sensors.

The company initially showcased this incredible feat to the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro. It was once hailed as the best camera phone in the market by DxOMark. It was then passed on Samsung’s own flagship, the Galaxy S20 Ultra.


However, they are not stopping there. Rumor has it that a Samsung ISOCELL 1-inch 150-megapixel sensor is also in the works.

There are people contesting the effectivity of putting more pixels in a small mobile camera sensor. As more pixels are being crammed together, individual pixels will be much smaller, which affects the effectivity of how they absorb light.


But now that Samsung is also making the actual sensor bigger, it will have more room for larger pixels. In fact, a sensor of this size is almost comparable to the popular Sony RX100 digital cameras.

Just like 108-megapixel ISOCELL sensor, the 150-megapixel sensor will also use pixel binning technology. But since it has more pixels, it will be a 9-in-1 division, resulting in 16-megapixel image output.


Oh, and just like its predecessor, reports claim that Xiaomi will be the first to use it again. The Samsung 1-inch 150-megapixel sensor is expected to arrive in Q4 of 2020, right in time for the Xiaomi Mi Note 11 Pro.
