As we reported this Wednesday, Samsung has been leading the megapixel race when it comes to smartphone cameras. It all started with the popular 108MP sensor, and earlier this month it introduced a 200MP sensor.
It should hit the first smartphones early next year, with the Xiaomi Mi 12 likely to be its first customer. But it seems that Samsung is already thinking about larger numbers, specifically 576MP.
Samsung wants to launch 576MP mobile sensor in 2025
The leak of information from an internal Samsung conference comes to us via the Image Sensors World website. This shows the history of the South Korean manufacturer’s mobile sensors, and the goal of reaching 576MP in 2025.

Unfortunately, the table in question doesn’t reveal more details about what we can count on with this sensor. And in the past, the manufacturer pointed to 500MP as the equivalent of the resolution of a human eye.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that Samsung wants to launch a smartphone with a 576MP camera. This is because these sensors can be used in cars, drones or virtual reality, as stated by the Android Authority.
However, the race for numbers in the mobile market is fierce. And if a few years ago it seemed unthinkable to launch a smartphone with 200MP, we are only a few months away from that happening. Therefore, this is not a possibility to be ruled out.
Expected to have this sensor ready in 2025, Samsung has four years to develop it.
