A leaked image of an upcoming Motorola smartphone shows that it sports a 200MP main rear camera with the Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor, optical image stabilisation and f2.2 aperture. 

The photo came from a Chinese leaker who posted the photo on Weibo.

The Motorola smartphone in the photo is most probably the Motorola Frontier, the company’s upcoming flagship phone built on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset.

It is also believed that the Frontier will have a 6.67in pOLED display, a 60MP selfie camera, up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

About That Sensor 

The Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor was first unveiled in September last year. It promises to bring 200MP resolution to mobile photography. 

To put that in context, the new high-end professional Nikon D6 DSLR camera and Canon’s EOS-1D X Mark III both have a 20MP sensor.

In practice, the 200MP sensor will most probably be used in 2×2 or 4×4 pixel binding mode. That results in subjectively better looking and better-lit images but with lower (50MP and 12.5MP) resolution.
