Samsung had launched the industry's first 200MP image sensor ISOCELL HP1 earlier, and many of us think it would appear on the upcoming Galaxy S22 series. However, it seems like that won't happening as a source claims that the flagship series will not bring drastic upgrades for the camera department.

It's said that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will stick to 108MP as its primary sensor alongside a 12MP ultra-wide unit, with both supporting OIS. Meanwhile, the vanilla Galaxy S22 and S22+ will include a triple camera setup. A 3x optical zoom lens is expected, while the front could use a 10MP selfie camera.

The source also mentions that the mass production of the devices will start in November, in time for the launch in January 2022. Since we're not going to see the 200MP sensor soon, guesses are on the Galaxy Z Fold4 or the Galaxy S23. Xiaomi is another company aiming to launch smartphones with 200MP camera sensors, and it could actually become the first to introduce one since Samsung's not doing it.
