With him Xiaomi Mi11 Ultra (to test) The smartphone giant from China has proved that you want to play at the top when the cameras arrive. Xiaomi owns a large part of this with the S5KGN2 Samsung sensor. With its 50MP resolution, the sensor is only about half the pixels that other Samsung sensors are. So comes normal Xiaomi Mi11 (to test) With S5KHMX from Samsung, which has 108 megapixels. But this does not mean that the Mi 11 takes better pictures than its elder brother, but rather the opposite is the case.
Still, the megapixel number of these Samsung sensors is impressive – and Samsung is apparently not high enough, as there are now rumors about 200MP sensors. Was already at the end of last year Rumors about a 600MP sensor, But here this leak seems more realistic.
First 200 Megapixel Sensor!
The first company that can install this new sensor seems to be Xiaomi. Not surprisingly, Xiaomi was the first to install the new hardware along with other Samsung sensors. As per rumors, there is a 1 / 1.37 inch format for 200MP sensor and hence it will be slightly smaller than the current top sensor of Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. The size of the sensor is particularly important in poor light conditions.
Like all high-resolution sensors, the new Samsung model will also rely on the Pixel Bean. This means combining several pixels into one image point. Typically, four pixels are combined into one in this process. With that, the photos of the new Samsung sensor will still be proudly 50MP. Accordingly, we can well imagine that a 200MP sensor would be given with 1: 8 or 1:16 pixels.
Such a high-resolution sensor shows true added value in detail and in zoom shots. Due to the immense information content that can be captured with the 200MP camera, the individual image details can be easily enhanced without losing too much quality. Sensors should consider with such resolution that they require a great deal of computing power. Here, however, the recent past has shown that the hardware of current devices can handle it. Even for around 300 € the Redmi Note 10 Pro shoots photos with a 108 megapixel sensor without any problems.
Findings on the new Samsung camera sensor
As you can see, even high resolution camera sensors have their advantages – but there are some disadvantages as well. We are interested in your opinion here, Do you have a cell phone with a high resolution camera and when and where do you use this high resolution? In any case, you shouldn’t let the manufacturers’ high megapixel specifications drive you crazy. They are not a guarantee for good recording.
