South Korean tech giant, Samsung has announced its plan to launch a 576-megapixel camera sensor by 2025. The plan was announced during a presentation at SEMI Europe Summit by Haechang Lee, Senior Vice President of Samsung Electronics Automotive Sensors. The slide shown during the summit exposed an overview of the camera sensor’s pixel size and resolution trends since 2000.
Samsung was the first company to release the 108-megapixel smartphone camera sensor in 2019. Following the development, last week witnessed the launch of the world’s first 200-megapixel smartphone sensor in the form of Samsung ISOCELL HP 1. Last year Samsung has confirmed that it is working on creating a camera sensor of 600 megapixels capable of matching or going beyond the resolution of the human eye that is around 500 megapixels. Samsung’s upcoming 576 MP camera sensor could beat this feat.
Samsung’s 576 MP camera sensor is developed not for smartphones. Instead, the camera sensor is developed for automobiles. It could be also used in drones and medical equipment. Autonomous vehicles need efficient chips to process images and videos from these high-resolution sensors. In a nutshell, smartphones wouldn’t possess this giant sensor.
Samsung has already expanded its categories of camera sensors usage from smartphones to autonomous vehicles, drones, and IoT devices. Anyway, we have nearly four years to witness the launch of the brand’s first 576MP camera sensor. Let’s wait and watch whether the South Korean tech giant can meet this planned deadline
