Qualcomm will soon add 192-MP sensor support to Snapdragon 855, 845 and more
2019 seems to be a year of experimenting cameras on smartphones. From Penta-lens on Nokia 9 Pureview to 48-MP camera make me think that this might be enough. What could be the next, Companies might think off? Many of you must be satisfied with 48-MP camera seen this year on Vivo V15 Pro, OPPO F11 Pro, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. Forget it guys! You will soon get a 192-MP camera on smartphones. Yes, you read it right. Qualcomm is shaping up the next phase of the camera with insanely surprising 192-megapixel camera support. The support is likely to come along Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, 845 and some of the 6-series, 7-series as well.
Most of the brands are trying to have a maximum customer base by numbers. It seems like they want to establish their brand as a smartphone photography expert. but, what’s the limit in this number game? Or I would rather say a ‘Megapixel War’.
Qualcomm spec-sheets for 192MP cameras
XDA-developers were the first one to discover the spec-sheet of certain mid-range and flagship chipsets to include support for 192MP cameras. The list of chipsets to now support 192-megapixel picture captures are Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, Snapdragon 845,710, 675, and 670.
Further, there are also details of things such as hybrid auto-focus, slow-motion video recording limits, and more. But before you get excited I must inform you that Qualcomm states 192MP will only be possible in a single-camera system. This means there will be no secondary lens or a front camera.
The update essentially indicates future smartphones that are powered by the Qualcomm chipsets. However, there is no such smartphone but its better not to expect one soon.
If you thought the megapixel war was over then my friend doesn’t it seem like a beginning?
