Since the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Samsung has had a sensor installed in its top models that enables images with 108 MP. A leaker is now reporting that Samsung is planning the next step with the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra. Photos should be here maximum resolution of 200 MP own.

Samsung has apparently decided to confusing naming of image sensors to maintain. After the Isocell HP1 and HP3 comes the HP2. However, this should not – as might actually be assumed – position itself between the other two sensors in terms of performance, but trump them. Samsung used a similar approach with the Isocell GN series. A higher number does not always mean better performance.

How the planned 200 MP sensor will also differ from existing models has not yet been made public. Due to the leak, we basically only know the maximum resolution. The image sensor could be larger than the Isocell HP1 and thus absorb more light.
