Samsung Smartphones of the Year Galaxy S21 and therefore the S21+ received equivalent photo equipment as its predecessors because of a more modern chipset with a complicated image processor. Next year, Samsung is reportedly replacing the hardware, which can be seen exclusively on most sensors.
The Galaxy S22 gets a 50MPx camera
According to a reliable informant nicknamed Tron, Samsung is getting to fit the Galaxy S22 and S22+ with a replacement 50-megapixel sensor. Until now, the Korean giant wont to use a 12MPx sensor on its flagship smartphones (except the Ultra model), but it should now increase the resolution by fourfold. However, the flagship Samsung should retain the advantage of larger pixels because the physical size of the chip should be 1/1.12″. The physical size of every pixel should be 1.4 µm and even 2.8 µm when using pixel binning technology. The resulting images must be immune to noise, which can be especially useful in poor light conditions. There’s also a video 8K resolution.
Samsung is reportedly getting to use another zoom lens. Surprisingly, it’ll be supported by a 12Mpx sensor, while the optics above it can handle up to 3x magnification. The Korean giant will thus keep the periscope camera for its Ultra model, and thanks to the sensor’s low resolution, it’ll not be possible to succeed in for further notch. The wide-angle camera should have a resolution of 12Mpx, probably not getting to be an enormous innovation here. There’ll even be no 3D ToF camera mounting. We don’t know the front camera’s resolution yet, but it seems that, unlike the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3, Samsung won’t be using the sub-display solution.
