The 108MP camera could soon be outdone by 200MP cameras on mpbiles, thanks to Qualcomm’s latest chipset which brings support for this. The flagship Snapdragon 865, which was announced at the company’s annual Snapdragon Summit in Maui, Hawaii reveals that the processor will bring support for this kind of a camera and adding to overall megapixel war.
Smartphone cameras these days have gone big on the megapixel count with the 48MP camera now easily available on most mid-range budget phones as well such as the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Realme 5 Pro, etc. Then we saw smartphone makers jump to the 64MP camera with budget phones like Redmi Note 8 Pro, the Realme XT, etc.
But it looks like 2020 will head in an entirely different direction where even flagships like the S11 are expected to sport the 108MP sensor. While the 200MP camera sensor is yet to be announced for smartphones, it won’t be surprising to see phones sport this kind of high megapixel count given Qualcomm’s new chipsets are bringing in such support via their ISP or Image Signal Processor.
The Snapdragon 865 processor comes with Spectra 480 ISP that will let supports up to 200-megapixel cameras, dual 25-megapixel cameras, and a single 64-megapixel camera. The Spectra 480 ISP will also allow users to record videos at 8K resolution at 30 frames per second (FPS), 4K videos at 120fps, 720p slow-motion videos at 960fps and 4K HDR with portrait mode. The Spectra 480 ISP also includes features like Dolby Vision and HDR10. The maximum storage capacity offered by the new Snapdragon 800 series processor will be 512GB, says Qualcomm.
