Now, Ice Universe, a well-known tipster, believes that Motorola will be the first to do so, claiming that Motorola will be the first to release a device with a 200MP sensor, albeit the leaker does not specify which phone would have this sensor or a launch date.
This is quite different from previous scenarios, wherein Xiaomi is the first to take on Samsung’s new sensors, even beating Samsung Galaxy devices, with Ice Universe mentioning that Xiaomi is going to use the sensor in the second half of 2022, which gives Motorola quite a bit of time to undercut Xiaomi.
In addition to this, it seems Samsung will now allow itself to make use of a 200MP shooter until 2023, which is quite odd, since rumors suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S22 will not feature this sensor, delaying a device with this shooter for a long time.
What this means is that Motorola is going to get some bragging rights and hopefully finally debut a flagship that can take the fight to OnePlus, Oppo, Samsung, Vivo and iQOO, among other brands.
Samsung revealed its 200MP ISOCELL camera sensor in September of this year, but no details on the first handset to use it have been released.
Because the previously rumored Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is expected to have twin 50MP cameras, we can rule it out as a potential match.
Furthermore, Samsung has begun rolling out its new Expert RAW camera app in the Galaxy Store in its home country. The new app allows users to take full advantage of the main, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses of the smartphone in Pro mode, they will be able to adjust exposure, manual focus, ISO, shutter speed and control the white balance. These controls are available for both photos and videos.
In addition, Samsung’s new Expert RAW camera app lets you adjust highlights, shadows, saturation, and hue just like the stock camera app on the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
In addition, it gives access to a histogram, offers HDR support, and can save images in lossless JPG formats and 16-bit linear DNG RAW formats. The main drawback of the Expert RAW application is that it only works with Galaxy S21 Ultra based on One UI 4.0 shell based on Android 12. But a Samsung community moderator promised that in the future, the utility will receive support for the Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy Tab S5e, as well as other devices.
