The first smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera sensor is expected to be the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra (AKA Moto X30 Pro), which is expected to launch later this month. The flagship should be equipped with a 6.7-inch curved AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution. The phone will reportedly come with up to 12GB of storage and possibly 512GB of storage.
Along with the 200-megapixel camera sensor, the lineup on the back will also include a 50-megapixel sensor and a 12-megapixel sensor, though the phone may not have an ultra-wide variant. The battery is rumored to weigh 4,500 mAh and can be fast charged at 125W when using wired charging and 50W when using wireless charging. Under the hood will be Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
The 200MP camera sensor is undoubtedly the most interesting feature of the device. The Edge 30 Ultra will be the only phone to sport Samsung
First up is the ISOCELL HP1 200MP sensor. Focusing on the camera (see what we did there?), Lenovo General Manager Chen Jin took to his Weibo account and posted a sample photo of the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra.

, the photo shows a colorful flower arrangement shot at 50MP (using a 4:1 pixel ratio with a 200MP sensor). With pixel binning, pixels share information with neighboring pixels. For example, with a pixel density of 4:1, four pixels share the information they collect to form a superpixel. This reduces a 200MP image to 50MP, creating a brighter photo with less noise.

Chen Lin noted that the 4:1 pixel binning used on the device is superior to the 9:1 pixel binning used by the 108MP camera found on the Moto G200 released earlier this year.
Performance, looks, great camera; looks like the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra can live up to the high expectations that this Android flagship now has.
