Galaxy S23: A new Isocell sensor from Samsung for photos in 200 MP

According to a recent leak, Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S23, should introduce a new Isocell sensor in its 200 MP photo module.

Galaxy S23: A new Isocell sensor from Samsung for photos in 200 MP

Samsung's new 200MP Isocell HP3 sensor will likely be announced this year

The Galaxy S23 could be equipped with this new sensor and therefore a much more efficient photo module

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 are unlikely to feature this sensor

We've already seen what the massive 200MP ISOCELL HP1 will look like in future Motorola flagships. Contrary to what one might think, it would not be at the cutting edge of technology. Indeed, Samsung is currently working on the launch of another 200 MP main sensor. Called HP3, it should arrive on the Galaxy S23 Ultra early next year.

What advantages will this 200 MP Isocell sensor from Samsung have?

Like the HP1 sensor, the HP3 is said to use Samsung's pixel binning technology, which combines multiple pixels into one to produce brighter, sharper images. Having a large sensor could also allow video to be produced with digital zoom at higher resolutions. Enough to improve the performance of 8K video recordings.

As of this writing, the Isocell HP3 sensor is said to be in the pre-production stage. The highly anticipated Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are unlikely to benefit from this photo module upgrade. It's the thin, foldable design of the Galaxy Z devices that keeps them from having a massive sensor.

For its part, Samsung remains silent. Nothing or almost nothing has leaked from the side of the South Korean firm concerning the Isocell HP3. Since the HP1 was already unveiled last September, it is very likely that the Isocell HP3 will be announced in late summer or early fall.

Is the photo module decisive in your choice of smartphone? What do you think of these resolutions at 200 MP, is it really useful?
