The MegaPixel war just started and we might see higher megapixel camera smartphone by End of 2019. Qualcomm recently updated their high-end and mid-range chipset and added up to 192MP camera support. That leads to the question of how Qualcomm added 192MP camera support for the chipset that already launched.
Chipset Supports 192MP Camera:
- Snapdragon 670
- Snapdragon 675
- Snapdragon 710
- Snapdragon 845
- Snapdragon 855
Judd Heape, Qualcomm’s Senior Director of Product Management (Camera, Computer Vision, and Video), told MySmartPrice that OEMs are working with sensor makers to release 64MP and 100MP+ smartphones later this year.
He also suggested that multiple brands are working on 64MP and 100MP+ camera smartphone which will launch by End of 2019. However, He didn’t mention any specific time the devices could launch or which smartphone company will launch the device with 64MP or 100MP+ camera.
There is no camera sensor available in the market with the 192MP sensor and so he added that The companies are also working with camera sensor companies to launch the device with a higher megapixel camera.
Do We Really Need It?
While Samsung, Google, Apple – The big names in the Tech industry is using 12MP sensors and still delivering the best result do we really need a higher megapixel sensor?
Higher MegaPixel camera gets the more details so when you zoom in that image will be still clear and the details will be still present.
Currently, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro, Honor View 20, Xiaomi Mi 9 using true 48MP Camera sensor which is Sony IMX 586. While the Vivo V15 Pro, Redmi Note 7 using 48MP Camera sensor which captures 12MP images using pixel binning.
In a note, I just want to tell you that Higher Megapixel doesn’t mean a better camera.
