Sensor of Siii is not 37mm2. This is almost the size of 1/1.8".
Probably s3 had 8MP 1/5".

Someone needs to try making the 2020 version of the legendary Nokia 808.

I'm glad that the Isocell Bright HMX, IMX586, the future IMX686 and IMX sensors commissioned by Huawei are on their way to go back to where Nokia was when it comes to big sensors. Sensors are what makes pictures so good and the high MP count benefited from the big sensors.

I wish people stop stigmatizing Megapixels like "16MP and above not equal to better camera". The blame is not the high Megapixel count but the freakishly small sensors that was introduced after 808 PureView's release for the sake of Miniaturization.
