Samsung was the first company to introduce 64-megapixel and 108-megapixel cameras for smartphones, which other companies have already made part of their phones.
Now, according to a report, the South Korean company is working on a 600-megapixel sensor camera. The report also provided a slide of an internal company document detailing the censorship. It was written in this slide that as 4K and 8K video records are becoming more common now, Samsung wants to provide a bigger sensor so that the user can record zoom videos without affecting the quality.
The first report on the censorship came in April 2020, with a statement from Eugene Park, the company's head of censorship business. In the statement, Eugene Park revealed that it wants to work on a 600-megapixel sensor to provide a more detailed view than the human eye. "Our eye matches the 500-megapixel resolution, and the development of this new sensor aims to make the camera even better than the human eye, which can be used in a number of products outside the world of smartphones," he said.
But the 600-megapixel camera may not soon be part of phones, as Samsung will have to address the issue of its location in the device first. In fact, such a large sensor would require a lot of space on the back of the phone and would not be an easy task. Even in April, Yongin Park declined to give a date or a deadline for the introduction of the sensor, but it is likely that it will soon be introduced, at least in concept form.
