Samsung is preparing a 576MP camera sensor, but you'll have to wait a while

It may or may not come to your smartphone, though.

What you need to know

  • Samsung has recently revealed its camera sensor roadmap at a summit in Europe.
  • The roadmap indicates the company is planning to introduce a 576MP sensor to the market in four years.
  • It's not clear whether the large image sensor will be baked into future smartphones.

Samsung looks set to push the envelope even further for camera sensors. The company is supercharging its imaging capabilities with a 576MP sensor that it plans to release in four years.

Haechang Lee, Samsung's senior vice president for automotive sensor, recently showcased the company's roadmap for image resolutions at the SEMI Europe Summit. The roadmap reveals its ambition to bring a 576MP sensor to the market by 2025, as spotted by Image Sensors World.

However, Samsung did not mention specific applications for that sensor. There are speculations that it could be used for autonomous vehicles, drones, and virtual reality. But that doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility of seeing such a large image sensor in mobile devices a few years from now.

Last year, Yongin Park, head of Samsung's sensor business team within the LSI division, revealed his team's work on a 600MP camera sensor capable of capturing more detail than the human eye. He noted in an editorial piece that the naked eye matches a resolution of around 500 megapixels.

In December, Samsung was also rumored to be working on a 600MP sensor for future smartphones. That's nearly six times the camera resolution of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, which is one of the best Android phones.

The new revelation highlights the tech giant's growing effort in the megapixel wars. It recently unveiled the world's first 200MP camera sensor for smartphones with the new ISOCELL HP1. So, an image sensor three times larger than that might not be a far-fetched possibility a few years from now.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
