Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could arrive with 200MP camera sensor

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could arrive with 200MP camera sensor

Towards the tail end of 2021, Samsung announced its first 200MP camera sensor for smartphones. This particular sensor has yet to make its debut on a device, but it appears that something better might have already eclipsed it. According to a new report from South Korean-based publication ETNews, an updated version of the 200MP sensor is near completion and will reportedly debut in a future flagship smartphone — like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra — in 2023.

Despite the impressive specifications of Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1, Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications and Electro-Mechanics division are reportedly nearing completion of an updated version, which is being dubbed the ISOCELL HP3. It’s unknown at this time what kind of improvements the updated ISOCELL HP3 will bring. However, the sensor will come in at 200-megapixels, making it one of the largest sensors found in any smartphone. Both divisions will share responsibilities in manufacturing, with the company’s mobile division responsible for 30 percent, while the Electro-Mechanics division taking on the bulk of the work with the remaining 70 percent.

In 2020, Samsung debuted its 108MP camera sensor on its Galaxy S20 Ultra. The following year, it would retain the same sensor for its Galaxy S21 Ultra. Samsung then again kept the same 108MP sensor for its Galaxy S22 Ultra. Despite Samsung being a leader in the megapixel race, far beyond most of its competitors, the company could look to up the ante in 2023. If it chooses to update to the rumored 200MP sensor, it could breathe new life into its flagship line’s camera equipment.

Of course, we’re still early in the process, so it is unknown which smartphone the new ISOCELL HP3 will make its debut. But, if the date is any indication, it will most likely make an appearance in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Keep in mind though that when it comes to rumors, anything can happen, and this could all change. Hopefully, there will be more information in the months to come, giving us a better look at Samsung’s plans for the future.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
