Recently, we have reported a few times that Motorola is going to launch a 200-megapixel phone in the coming months. Well, we have talked about this so many times that it doesn’t cause any doubt. Today, one of the Weibo tipsters quoted Samsung who said that the HP1 200-megapixel sensor will be used by mobile phone manufacturers. Obviously, Moto will be the first. Xiaomi will follow the Lenovo subsidiary.
Not long ago, Motorola officially issued a document saying: “A new era of 200 million images… A new benchmark for image experience that is not limited to parameters, opening the era of 200-megapixel mobile photography. See you in July.” This was an official hint that the company is working on a 200-megapixel smartphone, which will be uncovered in July.
From the previous leaks, we learned that Motorola’s 200-megapixel flagship will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. It is codenamed Frontier, and we also know that the latter will support 125W super-fast charging.
When getting back to the Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor, its size is 1/1.22 inches, the unit pixel is 0.64 μm, and it supports ISOCELL 3.0 technology. This CMOS can complete 4-in-1 or 16-in-1 pixel combinations according to the scene and can shoot 2.56 μm at 12.5MP or 1.28 μm at 50MP photos.
Meanwhile, the ISOCELL HP1 can shoot 8K video at 30 frames per second (fps) with minimal loss of field of view. It can reduce the resolution to 50MP or 8192×6144 to shoot 8K (7680×4320) video without cropping or downscaling the full image resolution by merging 4 adjacent pixels.
Besides, we knew that Motorola’s new flagship uses a 6.67-inch FHD+ resolution OLED screen, which will also support a 144Hz refresh rate and adopt a single-hole curved screen design. On the front, in the dedicated notch, the phone will host a 60MP selfie shooter.
