The surprising news was shared by a well-known tipster as well as a Chinese social networking site about which manufacturer could put Samsung’s 200 MP camera sensor in their smartphone for the first time.
As early as September, Samsung announced the first 200 MP smartphone sensor, the ISOCELL HP1. At the time, it seemed almost inevitable that the sensor could be introduced in one of the Xiaomi models or the Galaxy S22 Ultra in early 2022.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that the Xiaomi 12 Series will have “only” a 50 MP primary camera, and Samsung will wait until 2023 to use the 200 MP camera sensor, which means the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be one. But then what kind of phone will the novelty cost first? The well-known tipster Ice Universe has reported that Motorola could be the runner-up, with the manufacturer overtaking Xiaomi and launching a 200-MP smartphone in the first half of 2022. By the way, the Twitter information was also confirmed by the Chinese Digital Chat Station on Weibon. However, there is no information about the name of the model yet.
200MP camera will be adopted by Moto first, then by Xiaomi in the second half of next year, and by 2023, Samsung will adopt 200MP.

Motorola could be the first in any other way: the Moto Edge X will be released in China in December and could make its debut as the world’s first smartphone to work with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. (The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was formerly referred to as the Snapdragon 898, but Qualcomm’s branding system has changed since then.) The Moto Edge X is expected to hit the global market as the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra.
By the way, the number of megapixels is not nearly everything you can find out from our previous article, what else to look out for if you want to buy a phone that takes excellent pictures.
