The well-known Ice Universe insider shared some interesting information about the future of modern camera phones.
It seems that smartphone manufacturers have begun to move away from the principle of “quantity, not quality” in the development of cameras for gadgets. We are talking about a large number of megapixels: 108 MP, which a couple of years ago were something incredible, are now added to flagships and mid-range devices. But companies like Google and Apple have already proven that a 12MP camera is often better than a 108MP camera.
And it seems that 108 MP is slowly disappearing. At least, Ice Universe assures us of this. According to him, only Samsung in 2022 will use a 108 MP camera in its flagships. It looks like we are talking about the older model Galaxy S22 Ultra. Other manufacturers like Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, Iqoo, Realme, OnePlus, Huawei and Honor will mainly use 50MP sensors.
Among the known flagship mobile phone brands in 2022, only Samsung insists on using 108mp sensors. Other mainstream mobile phone brands, such as Xiaomi, oppo, vivo, iqoo, realme, OnePlus, Huawei and Honor, all use 50mp.

At the same time, until recently, he said that in 2022 the first smartphones with 200-megapixel cameras will appear.
