Samsung's new 200MP ISOCELL camera sensor could debut alongside a Motorola-branded smartphone sometime in H1, 2021. It is probably the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (Snapdragon 898) powered device we stumbled upon earlier. Xiaomi will follow suit in H2, 2022 and Samsung in 2023.

Now that smartphones with 108MP camera sensors have become more or less commonplace, it's time to look at the next big thing, i.e., devices with 200MP modules. Although Samsung unveiled its first-ever 200MP sensor quite some time ago, we're yet to see it in action. Multiple rumours told us that it would debut alongside the ZTE Azon 30 Pro, Xiaomi 12 and even the Galaxy S22 Ultra. However, this time around, it looks like Motorola will beat everyone to the punch by launching the world's first smartphone with the said sensor.

The information comes from veteran leaker Ice Universe, who says that a Motorola-branded smartphone will be the first to run Samsung's shiny new 200MP sensor in 2022. Xiaomi is expected to follow suit in the second half of 2022, followed by Samsung in 2023. The information falls in line with Samsung's age-old strategy of letting other brands test out its hardware before using it in-house. Xiaomi usually tests out Samsung's new high-end ISOCELL sensors, so it is surprising to see Motorola take its place.

It isn't immediately clear as to which Motorola smartphone will sport the said 200MP camera sensor. Based on recent leaks, we can reasonably assume that it could be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (aka Snapdragon 898) powered Motorola smartphone that popped up online. The camera sensor, along with the SoC, should give Motorola a leg up over the competition and hopefully establish its position in the high-end smartphone market.
