Bigger pixels are the future of photography in 2020, believes Honor’s marketing manager
Smartphones are evolving and it is no denying that they are indeed the most exciting piece of tech for tech enthusiasts across the globe.
In 2019, the trend of ultra-thin bezels and high refresh rate screen was on peak. But, by the looks of it, there is one more trend that might pick up the pace i.e. the high-resolution camera sensors on a smartphone.
We had the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 with a 108 MP sensor that could really capture brilliant details and we are also expecting at least one of the Galaxy S20 devices to come equipped with a 108 MP lens.
Although, some of the OEMs are heading towards this trend with their smartphones, Honor which is a sub-brand of Huawei (known for brilliant camera-centric phones) thinks otherwise.
Honor’s Marketing Manager, Shen Kailiang in a Weibo post, stated that bigger pixels (not more number of pixels) are the future of smartphone photography in 2020.
To achieve 100 million pixels [100MP – ed], the pixel size is difficult to exceed 0.8 μm. Sony and we all believe that a pixel size of 1 μm or more can guarantee the flagship sensitivity and image quality requirements. In 2020, our flagship company will firmly choose the route of large bottom pixels.
Understanding from this point of view, it indicates that Honor is not interested in working on a smartphone with a 100+ MP camera. This is true for the matter that there are devices like Google Pixel and Samsung flagships that produce great results with 12 MP lenses.
But, Huawei is rumored to fit in a 52 MP Sony sensor in its upcoming Huawei P40 Pro. It will come with pixel binning 4 in 1 technology that lets the sensor to merge four pixels into one. This, in turn, leads to capturing more light. And we all know that more light means less noisy photos in low-lighting conditions.
