Reiterating his earlier claim that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will come with a 200-megapixel camera sensor, tipster Ice Universe has suggested that Samsung may include a 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP2 camera sensor in the flagship smartphone as of now. He further says that the size of this sensor will be 0.60μm pixels. It is worth noting that the South Korean company announced its 200 megapixel ISOCELL HP1 sensor with 0.64μm pixel size in September. It also introduced the industry’s smallest 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP3 image sensor with 0.56μm pixel size in June.
As per the information shared by another tipster, the ISOCELL HP2 sensor will come with RGBW pixels and will offer hexa pixel binning (34.6-megapixel) to deliver a 208-megapixel image. The tipster also claims that the minimum resolution required to capture 8K video is 33.5 megapixels and the ISOCELL HP2 sensor has a 34.6 megapixel resolution. It will be able to record 8K 60fps or 8K HDR. In this case, the Galaxy S23 Ultra can have a video output of 8K 60fps.
There are also reports of a trademark application for hexa2pixels introduced by Samsung which reportedly suggests that the South Korean company is already working on a 450 megapixel camera sensor. The trademark application by Samsung was spotted on KIPRIS in South Korea and TMView in Europe.<!–
