A well-known network informant under the nickname Ice Universe, who often shares exclusive information about new products in the mobile industry, made a very loud statement about the future situation in the camera phone market next year.
According to him, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will be the only flagship smartphone from the famous brand to use a 108-megapixel camera. Yes, manufacturers have already played enough of the race for megapixels, and are switching to low-resolution sensors, which allow you to get equally high-quality images and videos.
Among the famous brands of flagship mobile phones in 2022, only Samsung is pushing for 108MP sensors. Other major mobile phone brands such as Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, Iqoo, Realme, OnePlus, Huawei and Honor use 50MP sensors.
As for the Xiaomi 12, other sources have previously claimed that it will receive a large 50-megapixel sensor, although Xiaomi has previously actively used 108-megapixel sensors in its flagship smartphones. Xiaomi 12 should be one of the first flagships based on the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 SoC.
Ice Universe has provided accurate information on Samsung smartphones and image sensors many times, including the recent announcements of new 50MP and 200MP sensors. He was also the first to show accurate images of smartphones with waterfall screens.
