Motorola could be the first to use Samsung's impressive new camera sensor

But will it have NFC?

What you need to know

  • Motorola will reportedly be the first to use Samsung's 200MP camera sensor.
  • Xiaomi may use the sensor in the second half of 2022.
  • Samsung may wait until 2023 before introducing the sensor on its Galaxy phones.

Samsung introduced its new 200MP ISOCELL camera sensor back in September, although there's no word yet on who will be the first to use the new sensor. However, leaker Ice universe claims that Motorola will take that mantle.

According to the leaker, Motorola will be the first to launch a phone with the 200MP sensor, although they did not say when it would launch or on what phone. The leaked Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is said to feature two 50MP sensors, so it's not likely to be that device.

This would depart from the norm, which usually sees Xiaomi being the first to adopt Samsung's new sensors, even before Galaxy phones. In that regard, Ice universe says that Xiaomi isn't expected to use the sensor until the second half of 2022, giving Motorola quite the head start.

This would definitely give Motorola some bragging rights and hopefully points to more proper flagship phones to compete among the best Android phones in the U.S., something Motorola sorely needs. After all, the Moto Edge 30 Ultra sounds pretty impressive and may be the first to launch with the upcoming flagship Snapdragon chipset.

That said, Motorola has released sub-flagship smartphones with 108MP sensors, such as the Motorola Edge (2021), so we'll have to wait and see what we get.

Lastly, Samsung may not allow itself to use the 200MP sensor until 2023, which seems like quite a long time to let the tech simmer in the hands of other OEMs. That said, it checks in with rumors that the Galaxy S22 would not use the sensor, so we'll likely have to wait for the Galaxy S23.

The hidden cost of food delivery

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

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
