Samsung is Working on 440MP and 1-inch Camera Sensor?

Samsung, being one of the most prosperous producers of smartphones, has come up with advanced cameras in recent years. The evolution started with the 108 Megapixel camera, which was manufactured a few years ago, and the 200 Megapixel sensor, which was unveiled this year and is used in the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which has become renowned. And now it has become huge as the firm, Samsung, has created a whole 440-megapixel camera this time, leaving everyone in a state of confusion.

This was teased by the Twitter tipster, Revegnus, who stated in his Twitter handle that there are four camera sensors that Samsung is supposedly working on. There are four of these: a 200 MP HP7 sensor with 0.7 micron pixels, a 50 MP ISOCELL GN6 sensor with 1.6 micron pixels, and a 440 MP HU1 sensor. The 200MP HP7 sensor, according to the insider, was initially planned for the next Galaxy S25 Ultra but was abandoned because of its unaffordably high manufacturing cost. 

The term 200 MP HP7 here in the information sounds similar and can be expected to come with slightly bigger pixels than the 200 MP HP2 camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Samsung’s first one-inch camera with a 50 MP ISOCELL GN6 sensor might provide a realistic bokeh effect and better light-capturing capabilities. The superb ISOCELL GN1 and GN2 camera sensors, which have enormous 1.6-m pixel sizes, look to be continued in the ISOCELL GN6, and the 1 inch camera will be a great competitor for its rival, Sony’s IMX989 sensor.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 could adopt a 50MP camera sensor

The ISOCELL GN6 is the sensor that may be utilized in the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s successor and may provide some enhancements. It is also expected that high-end and higher-midrange smartphones may employ the ISOCELL HP7. The 440 MP sensor could not be made for smartphones but rather for other sectors like automotive or industrial ones. Prior to now, Samsung stated that it intended to introduce camera sensors with a resolution comparable to that of the human eye, or between 500 and 600 MP. The 440 MP sensor moves them one step closer to achieving this goal.
