Sony IMX980 Is World's First 1-Inch Smartphone Camera And It's Headed To This Handset
Samsung has been leading the way in terms of megapixels when it comes to smartphone cameras. The company currently sports a 108MP camera in its Galaxy S22 Ultra
Sony's 1-inch sensor is slated to debut in Xiaomi's 125 Ultra early next week. While the sensor is larger than Samsung's, it will only come in at 50MP. Sony has used 1-inch sensors in its phones in the past, but they were all cropped versions of sensors used in its digital cameras. This will be the first that is dedicated to smartphones.
Whether or not Xiaomi is able to deliver better image quality with Sony's 1-inch sensor in its upcoming 125 Ultra is yet to be seen, but we don't have to wait long to find out. The 125 Ultra is set to be released alongside the Xiaomi 12S and the Xiaomi 12S Pro next Monday, July 4, 2022.
Do you think the Xiaomi 125 Ultra that will be utilizing Sony's latest 1-inch sensor will be able to outperform Samsung? Or do you think Samsung and its current image processing algorithms will hold strong? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
