Xiaomi 12T Pro – Xiaomi 12T Pro will come with a very powerful and distinctive camera sensor
Xiaomi has announced that its upcoming flagship phone, the Xiaomi 12T Pro, will use a 200MP camera sensor, likely Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1.
The 200MP sensor was announced over a year ago. However, the main camera sensor from the South Korean tech giant has not been used in any phone for a long time. The first phone to use Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1 camera sensor – the Motorola X30 Pro – was launched only last month in China.
And now the ISOCELL HP1 camera sensor appears to be making its way to more phones. Last week, Motorola Edge 30 Ultra with 200MP sensor was launched in India. Now, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has announced that the company’s upcoming flagship phone will feature a 200MP imaging system.
Given that the Samsung ISOCELL HP1 is the only high-end camera sensor for 200MP smartphones, we believe it’s the one that Xiaomi uses in its flagship phone.
The Xiaomi 12T Pro is said to use a 200MP Samsung camera with an F1.69 aperture, PDAF, and optical image stabilization (OIS). The Xiaomi 12T could work with a less advanced 108MP camera sensor than Samsung. Both smartphones are scheduled to make their world debut on October 4, 2022.

Aside from its ability to capture original 200MP images, the Samsung ISOCELL HP1 also offers 16-in-1 pixel binning with multiple resolutions ranging from 12MP (2.56 µm pixel size) to 50MP (1.28 µm pixel size).
Samsung also has another 200MP camera sensor in store, the ISOCELL HP3, which was launched last June. It has the industry’s smallest pixel size of just 0.56 micrometers. According to Samsung, it can focus faster than its predecessor and capture sharper HDR photos using a new image stacking algorithm.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra also uses a 200MP camera. However, various reports indicate that it will have a new 200MP camera sensor. The Korean tech giant took a similar approach with its 108MP camera sensors. The first 108MP sensor was the ISOCELL HMX, which was used in the Xiaomi phone, while the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra used the slightly newer ISOCELL HM1 sensor.
What do you think is the best camera sensor?
