But I'm in the development team of ic design in a top semiconductor company. So you don't need to be worried. Lol

The purpose of analog pixel binning is having less read noise than in the high resolution mode. The Event Horizon telescope combined multiple telescopes due to diffraction.

      BTW, try to use your "higher studies" on doing something productive instead of writing pointless comments on a public forum.

        Whackcar, 10 May 2022You wouldn't really need it. I bet Samsung will use 16... moreso all phone camera sensors use 12MP?? my life is a lie !!! can't believe some phone companies use that for marketing point

Other brands don't interest me.

                    This is a crazy. Samsung is out of their mind. Pixel bining doesn't give that much advantage towards noise reduction as much as bigger sensor. 200MP will be too hard for the hardware. 1" sensor is the solition.

                      Awesome news, Samsung is the best

                        Anonymous, 10 May 2022My god, I want this. Time to start saving for the 1TB version. You wouldn't really need it. I bet Samsung will use 16-1 binning for the 200MP camera, so you'll end up with 12.5MP images again. I'm not even kidding.

                          yalim, 10 May 2022there was no quality difference between 12MP and 108MP. why... moreThat's because Samsung uses 9-1 binning sensors, so 108/9 = 12. You end up with NO improvement in detail capture in daylight (which is like 80% of photographing scenerios). The only improvement you get are in low-light/night shots, which are easily be achieved by other brands by using advanced image-stacking algorithms like night-sight/night-mode/etc.

                          In the end, Samsung stays behind in cameras because they make stupid decisions. While Pixel/Huawei/etc lead the race.

                            Companies are busineses there incentives comes from making the most money from using AS LITTLE RESOURCES as possible

                            Profit is heavily locked behind getting as much customers as possible and here is the truth the bigger the audience get the less they care are know about specs

                              there was no quality difference between 12MP and 108MP. why push so much in megapixel war?

                                GS88, 10 May 2022Would rather see sensors being bigger like 1/1.12" (GN... moreThe pixel binning is there for a very good reason. The same principle used as when they took that first photo of a black hole a few years ago using the Event Horizon Telescope. That "telescope" is in fact a bunch of telescopes spread across the entire planet, all the way down to Antarctica. Join multiple sources into one pixel to rule out the distortions and you'll see things no one else can see. The end result for the 108MP Samsung sensor is also pretty obvious, there is no smartphone getting close to what you can achieve with an S22U, if you use the camera right: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCUHNk3nUjo

                                Fun nerd fact, the Event Horizon Telescope scientists are supposedly going to release the first image of Sagittarius A* on Thursday. The super massive black hole at the centre of our galaxy.

                                    I hope the 5500mAh battery will make it in the cut.

                                      AlienKiss, 10 May 2022I already have a 1TB SD card. I'm not asking for more ... moreIf SD cards are important to you, then don't buy Samsung. Some brands are still offering SD card slots on their flagships. Sony, Sharp, Huawei, etc.

                                      And yes, NM cards are still technically SD cards. I'm glad Huawei kept it instead of removing it altogether.
