Samsung is the first company in the world to launch a 108-megapixel camera for smartphones. Recently, the Korean technology giant has continued to introduce a “huge” 200MP sensor, called Samsung ISOCELL HP1.
Now, a new report has revealed that Samsung is working on another ambitious camera sensor for smartphones – the 600-megapixel that the company unveiled last year. However, it won’t launch anytime soon.
