Qualcomm Silently Reveals 192MP Camera Support For Some Of Its Chipsets

Qualcomm has just silently updated the specifications for some of its chipsets, which includes the support for up to 192MP camera.

The bezel-less screen has become a popular trend in the smartphone market today. Besides, the camera also plays an important role while Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are adding 48MP sensors to the current smartphones from flagship to affordable ones. Recently, chipmaker Qualcomm has been on tracks to include support for cameras with high resolution for its chipsets.

Currently, you can see a 48MP bandwagon in Xiaomi smartphones or 5 rear camera sensors in the Nokia 9 PureView of Nokia. Therefore, OEMs are boosting their experiments to drive camera limits with smartphones. According to a report of XDADevelopers, Qualcomm has silently enhanced its camera specifications for a few of the Snapdragon platforms.

The current amended specs offer different detail groups on dual and single camera features like limits of recording video in slow motion mode, hybrid auto-focus, etc. Interestingly, the select current chipsets support up to 192MP resolution single camera, which is much more pixels than that of today.

These chipsets in doubt include Snapdragon 845 and Snapdragon 855 flagship chipsets and affordable Snapdragon 670, Snapdragon 675 and Snapdragon 710 ones. However, the 192MP camera is still on the paper for a single camera image signal processor (ISP) and whether future smartphones have such high-resolution sensors or not remains unknown.

There are also other warnings for this such camera sensor with high resolution. Devices should part go some highlights like zero shutter lag (ZSL), and multi-frame noise reduction (MFNR) to use a 192MP sensor for the best result. The final line is that ability to capture photos with high resolution is theoretically gained. The chipsets still require a real camera with 192MP resolution, which has not been available in the today market. We will need to look forward to the launch of smartphones with these such big sensors.
