No one-inch smartphone sensor this year, suggests reliable leaker


In February, Samsung unveiled a new 50MP ISOCELL GN2 sensor which is 1/1.12-inches big and has 1.4μm-sized pixels. It’s currently the largest sensor you can have on a smartphone.

The South Korean giant will keep that crown for the rest of 2021, suggests leaker Ice Universe. He adds that the sensor will first appear on a Xiaomi handset that will be released toward the end of March.

Earlier, it was reported that the forthcoming Huawei P50 series will flaunt a one-inch 50MP Sony sensor but that doesn’t look to be happening now. 
Instead, it appears that the lineup will get a 1/1.18-inch IMX sensor, which will be a part of the 700 series. This would still be an improvement over P40’s 1/1.28-inch sensor and should allow for more detailed photos. 
Detailed camera specs are still not known but recent leaks suggest the standard and the Pro model will have a massive bump with two huge lenses. The aforementioned 1/1.18-inch sensor will reportedly be joined by ultra-wide and telephoto modules on the P50, and possibly a periscope unit, a telephoto alternative, and an ultra-wide snapper on the Pro.

Previously, the P50 was rumored to sport the Kirin 9000E chipset, but leaker Teme now says it may instead be equipped with a new Kirin 9000L SoC that is based on Samsung’s 5nm tech. It looks like a less powerful version of the 9000E as the leaker says that the A77 core will be limited to 2.86Ghz.

This may mean that the P50 Pro will be fueled by the 9000E, and only the Pro Plus will flaunt the Kirin 9000.

The new phones will supposedly be announced on March 26.
