Motorola Frontier leaks with Samsung 200MP sensor
Motorola’s rumored 2022 flagship Android phone is expected to bring a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset alongside Samsung’s 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor and we just got our first live look at the alleged device thanks to a Chinese tipster.
The upcoming Motorola Frontier houses a huge camera island on its back with a massive cutout for the 200MP main sensor. The accompanying text on the page confirms this is in fact the 200MP HP1 sensor with OIS and af / 2.2 aperture. According to details provided by Samsung, the 200MP sensor can function as several different sensors thanks to the deep learning-based remosaicing algorithm.
Samsung HP1 can do 2×2 pixel binning, which results in 50 MP resolution with an effective pixel size of 1.28 µm. There’s also a 4×4 binning mode with 16 sensor pixels used to create one big image pixel with the equivalent of 12.5MP resolution and 2.56µm pixels. It can shoot up to 8K video at 30 fps with the field of view shrinking as little as possible.
Motorola Frontier is also rumored to bring a curved 6.67-inch pOLED with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 60MP selfie cam. Elsewhere we get confirmation of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset which will be paired with 8 / 12GB RAM and 128 / 256GB storage. Speculations suggest a 4,500 mAh battery with 125W wired charging and wireless charging which will vary between 30W and 50W speeds. Motorola Frontier is rumored to launch in July.
