Xiaomi has, over the recent times, been focusing more and more on the camera department for the sake of its premium high-end devices and now, it seems as if the company is gearing up to launch a new smartphone which will make way with a larger camera sensor.
As per a recent report coming in, the Chinese brand is in fact working on a smartphone which will come with a 200MP camera sensor, which will indeed be the largest camera sensor for any phone. As of now, the 108MP sensor is the largest sensor offered by any smartphone.
It is believed that the sensor will come from Samsung, and in fact it is expected to feature with a 0.64um unit pixel – far less than the 1.4um pixel area of the ISOCELL GN2. At this current moment in time, we don’t exactly have too much information with respect to the sensor.

Recently, a rather well known leakster had in gvat revealed that the South Korean giant is in the works to launch a new innovative sensor this year under its ISOCELL that will arrive with a 200MP image sensor.
The Korean brand has also gone on to hint towards the development of a 200MP image sensor as the successor of the 108MP image sensor which was found on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. And while this isn’t yet confirmed, the brand is indeed likely to use the new 200MP sensor on the upcoming flagship Galaxy S22 series flagship smartphones. Also, it could actually end up being a part of the company’s new foldable flagship smartphone.
Interestingly enough, this isn’t even the only high megapixel count sensor that Samsung is currently working on. Last year, the brand announced that it working on a 600MP smartphone image sensor, although it would take years before this particular type of technology gets commercial. In the mean time, we are waiting for a smartphone equipped with a 200MP camera sensor to launch though – a launch which could occur sooner rather than later.
