Samsung announced its 64MP ISoCELL Samsung GW1 sensor in the market two weeks ago. Samsung GW1 is the highest resolution sensor available in the market right now. This sensor will enter the mass production in the second half of 2019 so that’s when you can expect smartphones with a 64MP sensor.
A new report from South Korea claims that Samsung will use GW1 64MP sensor in its mid-range device dubbed Samsung Galaxy A70s. Samsung decided to use the highest megapixel sensor on its mid-range device instead of a flagship device. It also claims that Galaxy Note 9 will have a different sensor.
Samsung Galaxy A70 was launched last year with the first A-series smartphone to pack with a 25W fast charger. The successor of A70 is expected to be a great value smartphone. Samsung Galaxy A70s is expected to arrive in the second half of 2019 but it didn’t mention if it will launch before Galaxy Note 10 or after.
Samsung always tends to use the basic features to its mid-range device before implying it to its flagship series. Galaxy A8s was the first Samsung’s smartphone to feature a punch hole display.
