Samsung to develop 600MP cameras that can capture more details than the human eye

Smartphone brands have been trying to bring better cameras in their smartphones; this includes Samsung, the company that just bravely announced that it’s aiming for 600MP cameras.

In an editorial published today, Yongin Park — the head of Sensor Business Team — says that the human eyes match the resolution of around 500MP. The company wants to aim higher than what the human eye can perceive by developing 600MP cameras that can be used in devices other than smartphones such as drones, IoT and autonomous vehicles.

In just six months, Samsung has managed to jump from the first 64MP sensor to the 108MP sensor that is seen in the latest Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. Last year, the company has also introduced image sensors based on 0.7μm pixels, the Samsung ISOCELL Slim GH1. Park also mentioned that image sensors aren’t the only focus of the company; Samsung is also researching sensors may go beyond human senses, including an ultraviolet light sensor that can diagnose skin cancer.

A 600MP camera sounds ridiculous now, but a 108MP camera would’ve seemed ridiculous a decade ago too so don’t be surprised when the day comes.
