Sony is reportedly working on its first 100MP sensor for phones

Lulfie, 33 minutes agoThe cameras are 99% software. Look at Apple with their 13 mpCameras are primarily physical and optical. The software can’t do much.

And the iPhone sensor is 12MP, but they’re huge sensors (for a phone, that is) with big pixels, that’s why they can work on them.

All those 48MP sensors are rubbish and they relied on pixel grouping which creates another share of the problems.

😂 😂 100MP? It’s not enough I need at least 300MP
It’s useless. If you want super duper great photos, buy a mirrorless camera
Or a camcorder.
We speak of a smartphone when there is 10% photo chip and 90% SW.
OK maybe less, but on a mobile device that’s more or less true.

But they need to work on the design and remove the old style design with top and bottom still without display. 100% screen to body ratio under display camera.

notafanboy, 3 hours agoAnything over 50MP is a huge gimmick. I hate the mega pickle race. Stop that!!!Translation your myopia

You don’t want to have an open mind.

History just repeats itself. Continuing to resist change inevitably accepts it only in the long run.

Then when 100mp is the industry standard, we’re going to hear that 120mp is gimmicky

This computational photography for higher megapixel smartphones makes sense with the heavy data manipulation direction we’re headed

But as usual, people want to impose DSLR rules on smartphones and think higher MP is a gimmick

I remember when over 12 megapixels was a gimmick

Nick Tegrataker, 3 hours agoSomething like a 1/1.12 inch 100MP Quad Bayer sensor would be nice – after binning you would know… moreYeah, but unfortunately this one seems to be aimed at midrangers so it probably won’t be that big (if those rumors are correct). So far, the hmx combined with the Xiaomi 11 was probably the best combination in terms of detail for photos in good light, but it didn’t perform as well in low light. A sensor like you mention seems to make sense for higher end phones

I would love to see Sony and Samsung collaborate on a few technologies such as the new “2-Layer Transistor Pixel” and combine it with Triple Gain Sensor technology, which they both have featured on. This could dramatically increase dynamic range and significantly improve noise. It could easily match or beat all current full-frame sensors in dynamic range (which is 14 stops). The new Alexa35 apparently makes 17 stops at an SNR of 2. So this should still be the top dog for a few more years.

There is no “after grouping”. The sensors are designed to read 4 or 9 by default. Full resolution is software based (100%) while 4-1 is also hardware based, as the filter above the pixels will not change position, although some people here think it can be done.

Samples and reviews have proven that full resolution has no benefit. It exists just to let them brag about 8K digital zoom and useless (upscale and sharpness).

Stop doing this in a failed attempt to get attention. You just embarrassed yourself.

There is no “car-specific software”.
The manual just locks the settings, doesn’t change anything else.

Maybe try watching an oversampled (or higher than native resolution) video first, and then come up with such opinions.
By the way, I agree with you that this Mpx run isn’t worth it, past a certain point (don’t tell me 12MP is enough lol) and I also tend to prefer the traditional Bayer sensor (the good old Lumias😍) QB/tetra/nonacell sensors, but there is no denying that they also have their advantages after grouping in certain situations.

I need a huge 300 gram phone with op sensor. I currently carry 2 phones in the same pocket – around 400 grams, and no issues with that. Use them as a foldable or mini laptop.

Something like a 1/1.12in 100MP Quad Bayer sensor would be nice – after binning you’ll still get 25MP resolution at 2µm effective pixel pitch, so day and night performance could be exceptional without sacrifice each other. It’s time to put an end to the 12/48/50MP sensors flooding the market.

Come on, Sony is working on your Auto (point-n’-shoot) algorithm/processing a bit, so those stupid utubers can shut up once and for all. Got gr8 sensors already (but not the best), gr8 glass and gr8 coating (T* like Vivo and unlike some i-mobiles), non-nasty camera bump (actually looks sleek ), a dedicated 2-level camera button, excellent manual controls for photo/video, etc. !!!
You just miss the software sauce, come on, I root 4 u !!

It’s a disappointment. The true 4K screen can only display 8MP, “4K” OLED – even less. And what’s the point if it will be scrapped anyway? Instead of having 1 good camera module, we will have a sum total of gigapixels in a bunch of mediocre phone cameras. And they will need insane computing power to handle computational photography on top of that.
