South Korean smartphone giant Samsung announced its 200MP ISOCELL camera sensor in September this year, with no word on the first device to feature this new sensor.
Now, Ice Universe, a popular tipster claims that Motorola will be the first to take the step, with the leaker suggesting that Motorola will be the first to launch a handset with a 200MP sensor, failing to mention which phone will feature this sensor or a launch date.
The recently rumoured Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will likely feature dual 50MP shooters, so we can rule that device out from being a prospective fit.
This is quite different from previous scenarios, wherein Xiaomi is the first to take on Samsung’s new sensors, even beating Samsung Galaxy devices, with Ice Universe mentioning that Xiaomi is going to use the sensor in the second half of 2022, which gives Motorola quite a bit of time to undercut Xiaomi.
What this means is that Motorola is going to get some bragging rights and hopefully finally debut a flagship that can take the fight to OnePlus, Oppo, Samsung, Vivo and iQOO, among other brands.
In addition to this, it seems Samsung will now allow itself to make use of a 200MP shooter until 2023, which is quite odd, since rumours suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S22 will not feature this sensor, delaying a device with this shooter for a long time.
What Else is the South Korean Giant Working on?
Furthermore, Samsung has begun rolling out its new Expert RAW camera app in the Galaxy Store in its home country. The new app allows users to take full advantage of the main, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses of the smartphone in Pro mode, they will be able to adjust exposure, manual focus, ISO, shutter speed and control the white balance. These controls are available for both photos and videos.
In addition, Samsung’s new Expert RAW camera app lets you adjust highlights, shadows, saturation, and hue just like the stock camera app on the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
In addition, it gives access to a histogram, offers HDR support, and can save images in lossless JPG formats and 16-bit linear DNG RAW formats.
The main drawback of the Expert RAW application is that it only works with Galaxy S21 Ultra based on One UI 4.0 shell based on Android 12. But a Samsung community moderator promised that in the future, the utility will receive support for the Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy Tab S5e, as well as other devices.
But when this happens, he did not name the dates. Apparently, the launch of Android 12 with One UI 4.0 indicates that, in theory, all devices of the company will be able to work with the new utility, which will receive an update to the current version of the green robot.
