Samsung is nearing completion of the development of a 200-megapixel camera to use with its next-generation Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone. This is expected to be revealed in early 2023. South Korea’s ETNews .
The iPhone 13 Pro’s main camera is 12-megapixels, while the iPhone 14 Pro is widely rumored with a 48-megapixel upgrade.
The S23 Ultra is similar to the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 108-megapixel main camera. Pixel binning merges data from several smaller pixels on the camera’s sensor into one “superpixel.” This allows for smaller pixels which capture less light.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra’s main camera takes 12-megapixel photos by default. There is a toggle in the camera app that allows you to shoot 108-megapixel photos. High-resolution photos may have large file sizes, so the default setting is best for most users.
The pixel binning feature would be available on iPhone 14 Pro models. Ming-Chi Kuo, a tech analyst, stated that iPhone 14 Pro models could support both 48-megapixel or 12-megapixel output. Kuo stated that the 48-megapixel camera would allow iPhone 14 Pro models support 8K video recording, an increase from 4K.
