Last week, we saw Samsung announce the world’s first 200MP mobile sensor, the ISOCELL HP1. It stated that it has already begun shipping the sensors to manufacturers but did not specify which ones. A new leak that has emerged today reveals that Xiaomi is most likely one of such manufacturers as it is working on a phone with a 200MP primary camera.
In 2022, Xiaomi is expected to follow up the Mi 11 Series with the Xiaomi 12 Series, and one of the models will have two primary cameras, one of which is a 200MP sensor.
The information is from Chinese tipster, Digital Chat Station, who revealed the details on the Chinese Social Media platform Weibo.
In the tipster’s words, Xiaomi’s next-generation flagship device will feature a 200MP+50MP dual-camera solution. Considering Samsung is the only camera manufacturer that has announced a 200MP sensor, it is safe to say Xiaomi will be using the ISOCELL HP1 sensor, and that the next-gen flagship is a phone in the Xiaomi 12 Series.
The post also revealed that Xiaomi will continue to use 108MP and 64MP sensors for its mid and high-segment devices.
It comes as no surprise that Xiaomi intends to launch a phone with a 200MP camera, the Mi CC9 Pro was the first phone with a 108MP sensor, so it makes sense that Xiaomi will want to be one of the first to launch a phone with a 200MP camera.
