Google Maps is now making it a lot easier to use a feature it gained nearly half a decade ago. Instead of explaining to…
How large can smartphone sensors grow? That’s a question a number of firms have answered in recent months.
Samsung and Xiaomi both shoved 108MP sensors in their flagship phones in 2020, but even this behemoth could soon be dwarfed if rumours are to be believed.
Yes, 192 megapixels.
That’s far larger than any existing smartphone sensor available in the wild at present.
The leaker also suggests that the phone won’t be a flagship, instead using a Snapdragon 7-series chipset to power its photography skills. This points to a premium mid-range device, possibly even flaunting 5G support too.
The leak doesn’t clarify which company could be behind the sensor. For one, Samsung is working on a 150MP sensor as reported in March, but that too is just a rumour.
Nevertheless, more will be revealed in May as Digital Chat Station suggests.
