Samsung has been steadily ramping up the resolution of its sensors in high-end smartphones, with the latest being a 108MP camera sensor now running in the Galaxy S20 Ultra. According to unconfirmed reports, Samsung may be developing a 150MP Nonacell sensor.

The report, appearing on the website WCCFTECH.COM, suggests that Xiaomi will be one of the first to utilize the 150MP Nonacell sensor in one of its flagship smartphones. That phone is reportedly slated for Q4 2020, to be followed afterward by OPPO and Vivo that reportedly will use this camera technology in its own handsets starting in 2021.

The sensor is rumored to be possibly available in the fourth quarter of 2020. According to the WCCFTECH.COM report, advanced mobile phone processors such as the Snapdragon 865 support high megapixel sensors, thus making the smartphones suited for 8K video recording over extended periods.
